Manchester City have agreed to release former United States captain Claudio Reyna from his contract.
Reyna captained the USA at the 2006 World Cup
The 33-year-old midfielder is expected to return to his homeland after three-and-a-half years at Eastlands.
He arrived from Sunderland for £2.5m in August 2003 and during his time at City made 77 starts and scored four goals.
City boss Stuart Pearce had hinted earlier in January that the player was considering making a return to the United States for family reasons.
Reyna, who signed a one-year contract in January 2006, played his final game for City in the 2-1 home defeat by Tottenham Hotspur back in December.
Last season his first-team chances were hampered when he broke an ankle and he has also been a peripheral figure during the current campaign.
