All Whites defender Michael Boxall has been released by his club in South Africa.

All Whites centre back Michael Boxall is looking for a new club.

Boxall, who started all three games at this month's Confederations Cup in Russia, has parted ways with South African club side, SuperSport United.

The club's Facebook page said negotiations for a long-term contract had fallen through with SuperSport unable to reach a deal with the 28-year-old.

"We had an option on Michael's contract, which we did not want to exercise unconditionally," SuperSport United CEO Stanley Matthews said.

"We offered him an amended option which he has declined, a decision which we respect. Michael served us extremely well in his time at the club. We wish him every success in his future."

Boxall played 39 A-League matches for the Wellington Phoenix between 2013-15 before moving to South Africa, where he was a team-mate of former All White and Phoenix striker Jeremy Brockie.

He helped SuperSport capture back-to-back South African Cup trophies in his two-year spell and played in over 50 games for the Pretoria-based club.
