Wellington Phoenix must rebuild their strike force after David Williams joined Roy Krishna in leaving the A-League club.

David Williams has joined Roy Krishna in departing Wellington, leaving the Phoenix without their prolific A-League twin strike force of 2018-19.

Former Socceroos forward Williams confirmed his departure on Tuesday, ending a one-season stint in Wellington which reaped 11 goals.

The 31-year-old formed a potent combination with Johnny Warren Medal winner Krishna, who announced the end of his five seasons at the Phoenix last month.

Neither player has revealed their next destination. Both have been reported to have offers from Asia.

Phoenix coach Ufuk Talay faces a hefty rebuilding job, with four visa slots to be filled.

Talay's first two signings were New Zealand international goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic and Australian teenage left-back Walter Scott.
