Harambee Stars winger Ayub Timbe parted ways with Vissel Kobe after five months with the Japanese club.
The J1 League outfit confirmed they had parted ways with the winger on a mutual agreement after a short stint and wished him well in the future.
“We are pleased to inform you that we have decided to cancel the contract with Ayub Timbe (28) after mutual agreement,” the club statement said.
The Kenyan international revealed on his official social media pages he has reached a mutual agreement to part ways with the J1 League outfit owing to lack of playing time.
“It was a pity, but we decided to cancel the contract based on mutual agreement because we couldn’t get a chance to participate in the contract because of our family.”
“It was a short time, but I am really grateful to the club players and staff for their warm welcome and the supporters for their support.”
“I believe we can meet you again somewhere in the world of football. I pray for all of you in the future,” said Timbe.
The 28-year-old joined Kobe as a free agent on February 19 and he only managed to play eight matches in the J1 League where he did not score a goal but managed two goals in the League Cup where he played five times.
Before joining Kobe, Timbe had parted ways with Beijing Renhe and this was after he had played for Championship side Reading on a six-month loan deal.
Masika had joined Renhe in February 2017 and scored eight goals in his first season to help win promotion to the Chinese Super League but the following season, he was loaned back to the second-tier to play for Heilongjiang Lava Spring.
