The Reds say they've had no response from the man who netted 36 goals for them last season to an offer of a new deal.
Boyce, who previously had a spell in Germany, has made no secret of the fact he hopes to land a deal in full-time football.
In a statement released by the club on Wednesday night, Cliftonville manager Tommy Breslin said: "Following our offer to Liam Boyce on the 14th May, the club have had no reply, though an agreed deadline was set, we requested a further meeting this week and that offer to meet was refused, I have decided to withdraw our offer and tomorrow begin to explore other avenues to strengthen the squad."
At the end of the season, Boyce's form during the domestic campaign earned him a call up to Michael O'Neill's Northern Ireland squad for the friendlies with Chile and Uruguay.
Boyce is in his second spell at Solitude having signed for German club Werder Bremen in August 2010.
He was released in October of the following year and rejoined Cliftonville.
