Herita Ilunga has had his contract terminated by mutual consent. So that's his £3 million transfer fee written off. A shame, as Ilunga looked a really good find in his first season under Zola. Sadly, he's never looked the same player after a series of injuries. However, he's played in the first four games of this season and also been getting a game at Doncaster. Presumably the decision to rip up his contract and pay him off has been taken to get his salary off our books. A vote of confidence in Danny Potts, if nothing else.
