Vincent Enyeama has left LOSC Lille by mutual consent, the Ligue 1 side confirmed on Friday.

In a brief statement on the club's website, Les Dogues confirmed that the 36-year-old's contract had been terminated by mutual consent.

"Beyond his performances, LOSC and its supporters will remember Vincent's smile and his enthusiasm," the statement read.

"The club wish him the best from now on in his future projects."

The Nigeria international joined the club from Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2011, but hasn't featured for the Northern side since April 2017.

He was deemed surplus to requirements by previous coach Marcelo Bielsa, and was overlooked by his successor Christophe Galtier.

The stopper played 164 games for Lille, and came close to breaking Gaetan Huard's record for consecutive Ligue 1 minutes without conceding in the 2013-14 season.

The Cat, who won the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria in 2013, was part of the side that were defeated by Paris Saint-Germain in the 2016 League Cup final.
