Zavon Hines has left Maidstone United and is set to return to the Football League.
Stones boss Jay Saunders spoke to the former West Ham winger and agreed to cancel the remaining two weeks of his contract.
Hines, 29, joined on a short-term deal in August after Jamar Loza was told he required ankle surgery and scored 10 goals in 25 appearances.
He was unplayable at times and after proving his form and fitness there was always likely to be league interest in the January transfer window.
Saunders said: “Zav’s done a job for us during his time here and at the same time we’ve given him an opportunity to rebuild his career and enjoy his football again.
“I get that he wants to have another crack at the league and I am not going to stand in the way of that, especially with his deal ending so soon and us having Jamar back playing.
“We wish him all the best and thank him for his contribution to our season so far.”
Maidstone have also announced the departure of winger Harley Willard.
The former Southampton man, who spent three months on loan at Eastbourne Borough after joining United last summer, has been released.
