The Wellington Phoenix won't be re-signing injured striker Joel Griffiths.
The Australian veteran is in the early stages of recovering from ACL surgery and isn't expected to be back playing for another six months.
Phoenix general manager David Dome says they can't wait around to see how he'll bounce back after the surgery.
"The chances, given his age, of getting another contract unless he makes a miraculous recovery in the next couple of weeks is pretty small."
David Dome says they are also yet to receive even a phone call about a possible transfer for striker Nathan Burns.
