African football giants, TP Mazembe have parted ways with Ghanaian midfielder Torric Jebrin.

Th former Hearts of Oak forward has been shown the exit following the expiration of his contract.

Jebrin joined the Congolese giants in 2019 on an initial one-year deal with an option to extend.

"Arrived in Lubumbashi in July 2019 for a one-year lease with another optional, the Ghanaian Torric Jebrin will not continue his adventure in Lubumbashi," a club statement read.

“He did not get the second year of his contract which was optional.

“Capable of confusing dribbles and a good reading of the offensive game, Torric Jebrin did not meet the expectations of the technical staff.

“Still, the club were counting on him to meet the challenge. As a result of its poor performance, both parties have agreed not to extend the lease.”

Jebrin made 15 appearances, provided two assists and scored only once in all competitions last term.

The 29-year-old attacking midfielder turned out for several clubs in Egypt and Saudi Arabia before heading to DR Congo.

Jebrin has played Ismaily SC, El Mokawloon, Al Masry SC, Al Wahda and Al Kawkab.

He has also had stints with Turkish sides Trabzonspor and Bucaspor.

Jebrin was handed a call up to the Black Stars during the doubleheader against South Africa and Sao Tome in the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers by former Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah in November.
