Spanish striker Raul Tamudo has had his contract at Pachuca canceled, the Mexican club have revealed.
The veteran striker joined the club on a free transfer from Rayo Vallecano in the summer, but has had a very disappointing start to his career in Mexico.
Tamudo has failed to score a single goal in nine league appearances for the club and has asked to have his contract rescinded.
Pachuca vice-president Andres Fassi has confirmed the player’s contract has been terminated with immediate effect.
“Tamudo decided to terminate his contract with us to continue his career in Spain,” Fassi told ESPN.
Raul Tamudo was once considered one of the most prolific strikers in Spanish La Liga, having scored at least 10 league goals in nine consecutive seasons while at Espanyol.
The experienced forward scored a total of 121 goals in 302 league appearances for los Periquitos.
With such a good track record, Tamudo should have no problems finding a club in the January transfer window.
