The club is not taking the year’s option that it had on Paulse’s contract, leaving the lanky striker faced with making a fourth move in just under three years.
Stars have also chosen not to hold onto Tshepo Moloto, who joins Mbuyiselo Sambu and Solomon Mathe in the list of those that have been given the green light to look elsewhere.
Former Moroka Swallows midfielder Morgan Shivambu is still under contract but the club is considering letting him go, while the future of Phelelani Mpangase is hanging as he is yet to respond to the contract renewal proposal made to him.
Lucas Thwala and Mduduzi Nyanda, who were on loan from Orlando Pirates, have been allowed to return to their club with chances of them returning to Stars looking slim.
“We are not renewing Paulse’s contract. Mmbooi is gone, though he spent the last half of the past season on loan at Dynamos. Moloto has joined Sambu and Mathe in players that have been allowed to look elsewhere. Regarding Shivambu, we are still considering his position while with JJ his contract is up and we have offered him a new deal that he is yet to sign,” explains Jason Raine, Stars’ general manager.
The club has already also released four foreign players in Zimbabwean striker Terence Mandaza, Niger defender Mohammed Chicoto, Cameroon goalkeeper Eugene Etame Soppo and Malawian striker Chiukepo Msowoya.
Meanwhile, the club is now merely waiting to agree personal terms with Patrick Malokase, who they have already agreed a transfer fee to snap him up from Pirates.
