Asante Kotoko have terminated the contract of Brazilian striker Michael Vinicius after just three months.
This was confirmed by head coach Mariano Barreto on Wednesday.
"Michael Vinícius is no more with us. The club will make an official announcement on his exit in the coming days," Barreto said.
The Portuguese made this known after the Porcupine Warriors advanced to the round of 32 of the MTN FA Cup with a 2-0 victory against Berkwai Youth Football Academy.
He was brought in as one of three replacements for Kwame Opoku who left for Algeria, but he has been poor with the club axing him.
Vinicius scored just two league goals.
The 27-year-old joined Kotoko on a two-year deal as a free agent, months after leaving Swedish third-tier side Vasalunds.
Vinicius played for Fluminense between 2012 and 2014, moved to Criciuma before returning to Fluminense in 2015.
He went on to feature for Estoril in Portugal during the 2015-16 season and made a comeback to his home country to play for America Mineiro, Resende and Cascavel before heading for Linkoping City in Sweden in 2019.
Last year, he transferred to Japanese third-tier side Grulla Marioka before returning to Sweden to join Vasalunds.
