Former Arsenal midfielder Denilson cancels contract with Al Wahda

The Brazilian midfielder Denilson has become a free agent after canceling his contract to Arabian Gulf League club Al Wahda.

Having started his career in Sao Paulo, Denilson spent five seasons from 2006 at English Premier League club Arsenal before returning to his boyhood club in 2011.

Since joining Al Wahda in 2015, the 29-year-old had made 23 appearances before being sent on loan to his native Brazil with Cruzeiro.

However, Denilson made only two appearances for Cruzeiro before seeing his loan deal canceled early and he returned to Al Wahda last January.

He is looking forward to playing more regularly after terminating his contract with Al Wahda.
