Reis was under contract until 2016, but will be allowed to leave the club on the 1st of December after a mutual agreement with Vitesse’s owners.

The 24-year-old will now move back to Brazil with his family, and believes there will be more opportunities for first team football, in his homeland.

He said in a statement on Vitesse’s official site, “The main reason for my early departure from Vitesse is that I want to return to Brazil with my family, I have also seen there were more sporting opportunities to play in the first team there.

“I look with a good feeling back on my time with Vitesse. This club gave me the confidence after my serious injury and rehabilitation period.

“Unfortunately I can not do as I wanted. Now comes my way back to Brazil and that is good. I wish Vitesse good luck.”
