Newcastle striker Nile Ranger has left the club by mutual consent the club have confirmed on their official website.
Ranger, 21, made 51 league appearances for the side scoring two goals, with only two starts to his name. He has also spent time out on loan at Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday.
He tweeted on Friday evening "I'm happy", although it wasn't clear what he was referring to. The player regularly courted controversy during his time at the club and was released on bail after being arrested on suspicion of rape in late January.
He had angered Newcastle fans in January following the defeat to Reading. He tweeted: "Certain fans need to not come and support this team... Coming out to BOOO us.. Stay at home.. Don't need ur BOO's.... SAY NO MORE !!!"
He then added: "Last thing from me... To all the fans. U are not forced to buy season tickets.. Or pay our wages.. Please remember that..."
Earlier this season Newcastle manager Alan Pardew said: "I think I've been fair with him. This guy is late so often, it is unbelievable. He's still at this football club and we're still trying to do something with him.
"But he will still not get back in the team unless he has a period of six weeks where he isn't late. I don't think it is going to happen. It is important, I'm not going to let him train with my first team because he is letting the other players down."
On another date Pardew added: "The bottom line is we haven't got four or five clubs queuing up (to take him). In fact we haven't got one club queuing up for him.
"That should be alarm bells in his head to get his act in order. But maybe he doesn't want to be a footballer."
