Kaizer Chiefs have announced that they have parted ways with goalkeeper Virgil Vries with immediate effect.
The 28-year-old still had two more years on his contract with Amakhosi, but given his erratic goalkeeping, the club decided to offload him in preparation for next season.
Amakhosi took to their social media platforms to confirm the news while wishing the lanky shot-stopper the best of luck in his future endeavours.

Vries becomes the fourth player to part ways with Chiefs in a week.
Last week, the Glamour Boys parted ways with Hendrick Ekstein, Gustavo Paez and Khotso Malope.
The departure of Vries doesn't come as a major surprise given that the Soweto giants recently brought in Daniel Akpeyi from Chippa United.
The former Baroka keeper leaves Amakhosi having made eight appearances across all domestic competitions.
He conceded six goals in the eight matches and picked up four clean sheets.
However, the two costly mistakes he made against Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City saw him relegated to the stands.
As a result, Ernst Middendorp gave both Akpeyi and Bruce Bvuma the chance to start in goal in the absence of the injured Itumeleng Khune, who is expected to return to action next season.
