Oldham have released full-back Rodrigue Dikaba after less than two months at the club.
The 24-year-old defender, who played just twice for the Latics, was injured on international duty with DR Congo but failed to return to Boundary Park.
Manager Paul Dickov told the club website: "Rodrigue wanted to see his own doctor but we told him to come back to see our medical staff here."
He added: "We have a great set of lads here and I don't want any individual spoiling it."
