Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns have reportedly parted ways with winger Ejike Uzoenyi after the Nigeria international failed to make the grade during his three-year stay at Chloorkop.

The 24-year-old has made just six Premiership appearances since signing for the team in 2014 and it is believed he will now return to his home country to sign for Enugu Rangers.

"We finally reached a mutual agreement to terminate Uzoenyi's contract with Sundowns after two-and-a-half years. We are now focusing on the options before us and very soon Ejike will be back in the field doing what he loves most playing football," the player's agent, Mohammed Lawal, revealed on his official Twitter account.

Reports from Nigeria say that the forward is training with Rangers with a deal thought to be on the cards in the near future.

The Aba-born star spent six years with the Flying Antelopes during the early part of his career.
