Oguchi Onyewu is officially a free agent.

After weeks of trying to part ways with Sporting CP, Onyewu and the Portuguese club reached an agreement to do so on Thursday. Onyewu, a two-time World Cup veteran who was most recently with the U.S. Men’s National Team in July for the 2013 Gold Cup, is now a free agent and can sign with any team interested in his services.

Onyewu signed with Sporting CP back in 2011 and enjoyed a strong first season, but still was deemed surplus to requirements during the last summer transfer window and was loaned out to Spanish club Malaga for the 2012-13 campaign. The 31-year-old Onyewu made 17 starts and scored four goals during his one season with Sporting CP, but was limited to just two appearances with Malaga.

What do you think of Onyewu mutually parting ways with Sporting Lisbon? Where should he go next? Wishing for an MLS team to pick him up? Still hoping he makes it back onto the USMNT?
