After their recent promotion to the English Premier league, Hull City has released Seyi Olofinjana from his contract with the club.
The former Nigeria international was considered expendable, along with eleven others, as manager Steve Bruce reshaped his squad, while four players including Senegalese defender, Abdoulaye Faye, were offered new contracts.
The move eventually ended his four- year association with the Tigers, due to expire in June.
The injury- plagued Olofinjana has not played for the Championship team since November and was allowed to join Championship strugglers Sheffield Wednesday ahead of March’s emergency loan deadline for Football League clubs.
Olofinjana has dramatically failed to live up to expectations since his £3 million signing from Stoke City in the summer of 2009.
Having spent the 2010/11 season on loan at Cardiff City, the midfielder has earned about £6 million in wages during his four years on the Tigers payroll.
In return, he made just 24 starts, scoring just once for the club.
