“Akpala played first time at KVO from 2015 to 2018 and in November 2019 he returned to the coast for a second period.
“In the first game after his return, he provided a goal and an assist for a 3-2 win against Anderlecht, but in his fourth game at KV Mechelen, he then dropped out with an injury.
“After New Year he only played in the home game against Waasland Beveren. His contract with KVO ran until June 30, but was extended until last Saturday. Then he played in the exhibition match against Varsenare, but now the collaboration ends.”
Akpala, 33, made his Super Eagles debut in 2008, earned 13 caps and scored one goal.
