Wolfsburg have released Turkish forward Sanli Tuncay, just eighteen months after he joined the club for £4.5 million from Stoke City.

Tuncay, 30, still had two and a half seasons remaining on his current Wolfsburg contract, but has found himself out of favour at the Saxony club.

Tuncay signed for the German side under Steve McLaren, but the Englishman was sacked just one week later.

The Turkish international, who has scored 22 goals in 81 appearances for his country, spent the 2011-12 season on loan at Bolton Wanderers playing only three times for the Trotters.
