Huh, sure, but why? Do we get any meaningful savings by releasing him this late in the season?
I get that he didn't set the world alight, but why not keep him for the run-in? Muyl was recently injured, Omir has a slight build, and Etienne is on a loan. I guess Sims better come through quickly.
Wishful thinking, but maybe also Armas considering a change of shape. And in addition, he'd probably play Rzat at winger with Casseres, Davis, and Kaku in the middle. And it looks like they'll throw Sims right into the fire.
