PRETORIA - SuperSport United and New Zealand international defender Michael Boxall have parted ways with immediate effect.

Negotiations for a long-term deal with Boxall have fallen through because of the club not being able to agree terms with the defender.

Boxall joined SuperSport in 2015 after leaving Wellington Phoenix. He also previously played for the Auckland City and Canada's Vancouver Whitecaps.

The 28-year old helped Matsatsantsa to win back to back Nedbank Cup trophies in his two-year spell with over 50 games played for the club.

He was subsequently nominated for the Telkom Knockout Player of the Tournament award.

SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews explains, “We had an option on Michael’s contract which we did not want to exercise unconditionally. We offered him an amended option which he has declined, a decision which we respect. Michael served us extremely well in his time at the club, we wish him every success in his future.”
