The 31-year-old scored four goals in seven games for the Bucks.

He has been let go in order to balance the books, following the arrival of fellow centre forward Amari Morgan-Smith on an 18-month deal from York City.

Telford boss Rob Edwards said: "The budget, that's all that it is.

"We can't keep everyone. A lot of our players are on contracts and Sylvan wasn't one of them.

"We made a couple of signings last week and we are looking to make a couple more, to strengthen the squad.

"That's all it is. It was a difficult decision, but one I had to make in the best interest of the football club."

He added: "His attitude has been first class with us. I wish him well."

Ebanks-Blake had a five-year spell at Wolves, scoring 64 goals.

After his departure from Molineux in 2013, the former Manchester United youngster played for Ipswich Town, Preston North End, Chesterfield and Shrewsbury – before joining the Bucks in November.
