Lewes striker George Landais has left the Bostik League South club to join league rivals Horsham for the remainder of the season.
Landais has been on loan at Horsham for the past six weeks but has now reached the maximum amount of time he can spend on short-term loan at the club.
Lewes boss Darren Freeman has therefore agreed to cancel Landais` contract, which ran until the end of this season, so that he can continue to get game-time at their Sussex neighbours.
“George has done brilliantly to come back from a serious injury,” Freeman told the club`s website. “George is a great lad and he just needs to be playing right now, and I can’t guarantee him first-team starts. I like to treat players in the same way I’d treat my own boys, and the best thing for him now is to get game time at Horsham.”
Freeman was keen to stress that the door remains open for Landais: “It’s all been very amicable, and he hasn’t cut his ties with the club. I’ll sit down and have a coffee with George at the end of the season, and we’ll take things from there”.
Our very best wishes to George Landais, who is leaving the club to join our Sussex neighbourshttps://t.co/trrAdN0SJD
