Oldham have released French striker Willie Gros from his month-to-month contract with the League One club.
The ex-Kilmarnock forward, 22, linked up with the Latics in pre-season.
But manager Lee Johnson says he is unable to offer Gros regular first-team football and he has left Oldham after just two appearances.
"He is unlucky really. He has done well and he's shown a good attitude. I felt for him and us. It wasn't quite right," Johnson told the club website.
"At this stage of his career, he needs to be starting games. He's a good player and he did a job for us when he needed to so I wish him well for the future."
