Sporting Kansas City has terminated the contract of Peterson Joseph in what the club calls a mutual decision.
The 24-year-old midfielder from Haiti has been on the disabled list since the start of the season following an unknown medical issue that arose during last year's playoff push. Joseph has not played in a match for the MLS Cup champions since last October.
Joseph appeared in 36 matches during his Sporting KC career, including three matches in the CONCACAF Champions League and three U.S. Open Cup victories.
The move opens an international roster spot for the team.
