Manchester, United - Manchester City on Wednesday released Norway Under-21 international Abdisalam Ibrahim.

The 22-year-old midfielder, frustrated at a lack of first-team opportunities at the Etihad Stadium, has been linked with a move to Greek side Olympiakos and has also reportedly been monitored by other Premier League clubs.

Ibrahim joined City in 2007 but made just three first-team appearances, all in 2010, including one off the bench in a Premier League game against Liverpool in February that year.

A statement on City's Twitter account read: “The club can confirm that Abdisalam Ibrahim has been released from his contract. We wish him well for the future.”
