Australia winger Ahmad Elrich has been released early from his contract with English Premier League side Fulham.

In a statement posted on Fulham’s website about its latest transfer deals, the club revealed that Elrich had been let go.

The 26-year-old signed a three-year contract with Fulham in 2005 but only appeared in six league games. He missed all of last year’s season due to a serious knee injury.

Reportedly Elrich plans to return to Australia and join A-League side the Central Coast Mariners.
