The Serbian journeyman had been signed from Partizan Belgrade last September but made just five appernaces for the Lilies and had few opportunities in the squad once Felix Platte returned from the long-term injury lay-off.
He had signed a two-year contract however the club and player agreed to terminate the deal by mutual consent to allow the 26-year-old to find first team football elsewhere.
Director of sport Carsten Wehlmann said that Ožegović had “never let himself down in training” despite his lack of opportunities on the pitch and added that he leaves on good terms.
Ožegović confirmed that he wants “to get more game time” and he was grateful that the club had been honest that this would be “difficult” with them. “I am now happy for a new challenge,” he added.
It is unclear where his next destination will be at this stage.
He may not be the last striker to leave. Johannes Wurtz, like Ožegović, appears to have little future at the club whilst Hannover as well as several Turkish clubs are reportedly interested in top scorer Serdar Dursun. Hannover are also keen on midfielder Victor Pálsson.
