Aberdeen have cancelled the contract of Calvin Zola, leaving the forward free to find a new club.

The 29-year-old spent a season with the Dons, scoring three goals.

He struggled to hold down a regular place in the team and his departure comes as manager Derek McInnes pursues out-of-contract striker Kris Boyd.

"Everyone involved with AFC wishes Calvin and his family all the very best in his future career," McInnes told the Aberdeen website.

"Calvin is a good guy and was a popular figure in the dressing room and around the club in general."

Zola, who had joined Aberdeen on a two-year deal, lists Burton Albion and Oldham Athletic among his former clubs.
