expr=x*y*(-(z^2/(r^2*(x^2+y^2)))-1/(r*(k+r))+1/(x^2+y^2));

Simplify[expr, r^2==x^2+y^2+z^2]

(k*x*y)/(r^2*(k + r))

<< expr = x*y*(-(z^2/(r^2*(x^2 + y^2))) - 1/(r*(k + r)) + 1/(x^2 + y^2))

where

r^2 == x^2 + y^2 + z^2

reduces to

(k*x*y)/(r^2*(k + r))

I wonder if anyone can show an elegant or short method to do the
simplification?
