South African side SuperSport United have reached an agreement to part ways with Togo international Dove Wome.
The attacking midfielder’s contract with the Pretoria-based club was due to expire at the end of the season.
Wome has struggled to establish himself at the club since joining from another South African side Mamelodi Sundowns.
It is believed that South African clubs Ajax Cape Town and Bidvest Wits are interested in signing the former Free State Stars man.
“Dove Wome has signed an agreement with Supersport United to terminate his contract,” a source told KickOff.com.
“The coach [Eric Tinkler] said he’s not part of his plans anymore and he went to meet the chairman [Khulu Sibiya]. And from what I hear Ajax Cape Town and Bidvest Wits want him.
“Wome won’t be affected anymore in terms of signing for any club in the PSL because he’s now registered as a local player.”
SuperSport CEO Stan Matthews says: “We have agreed with Dove that if he has any good longer term offers then he can pursue them. He is not under any presser to leave as he is contracted until the end of the season.”
The player’s agent, Lizwe Mthethwa of Aftersec Sports Group, confirmed the agreement.
“We have reached an agreement with Supersport regarding Wome and he’s at home as we speak. He left here on Friday last week to relax a bit but he’ll be back in the country next week Wednesday,” he says.
He was loaned out to Orlando Pirates for the second half of last season, but he was unable to make a mark and the Soweto giants decided against signing him on a permanent deal.
