Former Bayer Leverkusen player Robbie Kruse only made four appearances during his time at Liaoning Whowin.

An Australian players' union says Robbie Kruse and James Holland are free agents after terminating their contracts with Chinese Super League club Liaoning Whowin due to unpaid wages.

Professional Footballers Australia chief executive John Didulica said in a statement yesterday that Kruse and Holland had signed for the club in January but have left after their contractual obligations were not met.

"The players had placed the club on notice to remedy the situation, however the club has failed to do this," he said. Kruse made four appearances for Liaoning while Holland played once.

Kruse, who was part of Australia’s AFC Asian Cup winning squad in 2015, joined Liaoning having spent the previous three seasons on the books of Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga, while Holland moved to China after a stint with A-League side Adelaide United.
