Brisbane Roar has made room for another A-League import after severing ties with German utility Jerome Polenz.
Polenz, a former Western Sydney fan favourite, was contracted to Brisbane for the 2016-17 season but accepted an undisclosed payout to leave the club immediately.
He made just 12 appearances for the Roar over the past two seasons and played only once under coach John Aloisi.
It means the Roar now has room to sign three more visa players, with marquee man Thomas Broich and new recruit Thomas Kristensen the only imports left on the books.
Aloisi is believed to be targeting more defensive back-up and another versatile attacking option as he prepares for his second season in charge of Brisbane.
