That number includes former PSV Eindhoven and Poland goalkeeper Przemyslaw Tyton, who is the most senior of the players whose contract options have not been exercised by the club.

South African midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo appears set to remain with the club despite an indifferent campaign as he is one of 17 players who hold guaranteed contracts for 2022.

The 30-year-old started in just four of his 13 appearances for the season, amounting to 457 minutes on the field, as Cincy ended bottom of the MLS table. 

However, while Mokotjo has been included in Cincinitti's preliminary squad, his future remains in doubt with the club set to undergo a rebuilding phase following last season's disappointment.

The former Brentford star is currently one of the players occupying a Discretionary Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) spot at the club and could make way for a new recruit in the off-season.

The 24-cap Bafana Bafana international moved to the United States last year and has made 22 appearances for the Orange & Blue.
