Former SuperSport United and Bidvest midfielder Cole Alexander has parted ways with Indian Super League side Odisha FC.

The 32-year-old midfielder leaves Odisha after only one season with the Indian outfit, having found the back of the net three times from 15 appearances in the Indian Super League.

Following his departure from Odisha, Alexander has been heavily linked with a move to Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs, where is reportedly part of their training camp with the rest of the team, according to TheSouthAfrican.com.  

“It is with sadness, but so much gratitude, that I can announce that I will not be returning to India for a second season,” Alexander announced on social media.

“This decision was not an easy one, but one that had my family's well-being at its core. I would like to thank the entire Odisha family. To the management and coaching staff, thank you for your support, and for taking care of me during my time in India. 

“To my teammates, I've loved working with you and learning and laughing with you. I wish you guys only the very best for the upcoming season and the ones to follow. Thank you to each one of the Odisha fans. You guys really kept us going.  I've loved the experience while playing in India. I will never forget the lessons, the amazing culture and lovely people. I am forever grateful. Thank you for your support.”
