Cardiff City have terminated the contract of winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing with immediate effect.
No reason was given by the Bluebirds, with the news confirmed in a brief statement on Cardiff's website.
Mendez-Laing scored 14 goals in 82 appearances in all competitions after joining on a free transfer from Peterborough in May 2017.
A statement released by Mendez-Laing's representatives, Fifteen Eleven Management, on his behalf says: "Following on from the announcement that I have left Cardiff City FC, I would like to place on record my thanks to the fans for the support they have shown me over the past three years.
"I will be making no further comment at this time."
