The New England Revolution have announced the mutual parting of ways with midfielder Arnor Traustason, with his contract termination effective August 9.

Traustason has already secured a move to Swedish top-flight side IFK Norrköping having originally joined the Revs from Malmö FF in March 2021.

A 44-time international with Iceland, Traustason made 48 appearances for the Revs across all competitions, scoring twice and providing six assists. The 29-year-old was a part of the 2021 team that won the Supporters' Shield with a record points total.

Traustason's departure opens up an international roster spot for the Revs, who currently sit 10th in the Eastern Conference, level on 30 points with Inter Miami, Orlando City, and the Chicago Fire - the latter occupying the seventh and final MLS Cup Playoffs spot.

Bruce Arena's side host DC United on Saturday.
