Sunderland have announced that striker Louis Saha has left the club by mutual consent.
The 34-year-old joined the club on a one-year deal last summer, but is now a free agent after ending his contract on Wearside.
The club's Chief Executive Margaret Byrne said: "We wish Louis all the very best for the future and thank him for his contribution to Sunderland."
Saha made just two starts and a total of 14 appearances for the Black Cats.
