Former Hearts of Oak midfielder Benjamin Afutu Kotey has been cut loose by his Egyptian side Eastern Company SC barely nine months after joining the club.
The Ghanaian defensive midfielder joined the Egyptian side on a free transfer after departing Accra Hearts of Oak after they failed to reach terms on contract extension.
Eastern Company SC have decided to terminate their contract with the defensive midfielder due to what they term as unsatisfactory performance.
He joined his new side in Spetember, 2021 and at the time signed a three year deal but just nine months into the contract, it has been terminated.
The player after his abortive spell in Egypt has returned home where he hopes to take the next line of action in the coming days.
His side are currently rock bottom f the Egyptian Premier League after 20 matches having garnered 13 points.
The Ghanaian midfielder has been on the periphery of the first team having played just eight matches with a grand total of 426 minutes for his club in the Egyptian league.
Afutu helped Accra Hearts of Oak win the league and MTN FA Cup double last season before deciding to leave the club after the expiration of his contract.
