Chester City midfielder Damien Mozika has been suspended following 'serious breaches of club discipline'.
The Frenchman only joined the Blues last summer and had quickly caught the eye of a team in the Championship.
He has scored twice in 25 appearances for the League Two strugglers, but has featured only once in the last 18 games.
Mozika's career with the Blues now appears to be over and he is expected to fly back to France on Friday.
City owner Stephen Vaughan believes the club had no option but to suspended Mozika following recent incidents.
Vaughan told the club's official website: "The player has been involved in some unacceptable behaviour during the past fortnight, which are without doubt serious breaches of club discipline, and we have been left with no alternative but to reach this decision."
