Defenders Jean-Yves Koue Niate and Chris M’Boungou have left Guiseley by mutual agreement.
The two centre-backs joined the club together back in October and while M’Boungou cemented himself a place in the heart of the defence. Koue Niate was unable to do likewise.
M’Boungou figured in the history making Emirates FA Cup win over Accrington Stanley but was sent off for two yellow cards, a feat he repeated in the next Emirates FA Cup game against Mansfield. After the FA Cup run ended both players found themselves out in the cold as new players arrived.
Born in Noisy-le-Grand in France M’Boungou, 25, played for Auxerre and Cannes in his home country before joining Staines Town. After spells with Bishop’s Stortford and St Albans City he spent last season with Whitehawk.
Koue Niate, 24, who can also play at full-back, was born in Paris and in his fledgling career played for Reims, Turnhout, Arlon and Cannes before coming to England. He had trials with Dundee United but more recently played for Oxford City, Solihull Moors and Ebbsfleet.
