Brighton have released midfielder Nzuzi Toko after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

The 24-year-old has only made one appearance for the Seagulls since joining the Championship club on a three-year deal last summer.

The former Grasshopper Zurich man's sole outing came as a sub in the League Cup win over Burton in September.

"Unfortunately things didn't work out as all parties had hoped," said Albion chief executive Paul Barber.external-link

"Nonetheless all of us at the club thank Toko for his efforts and wish him well for the future."

DR Congo-born Toko had come through the Grasshoppers youth system and made over 100 appearances during his time with the Swiss club.
