As the Brighton and Hove Albion has announced a little earlier today, striker Elvis Manu has once and for all left the club. He has signed a new two-year contract with Turkish Super League club Genclerbirligi SK.
Usually, his contract with the Albion would have run for another year but the player has cut ties right now. He is still waiting for details of the contract to be confirmed and has decided not to take part in the team’s current pre-season training camp in Austria.
The decision follows a continuous struggle for the player to secure regular game time ever since he joined the Seagulls back in 2015. In an official statement on the Brighton and Hove Albion website, Manager Chris Hughton said:
“The competition for places in our forward areas means that it has been very difficult for Elvis to play the number of matches he would have liked. He has worked hard during his time here, but with his game time likely to be limited again, this is the best move for him.”
“It gives him the chance to play regular football in a competitive Turkish Super League, and I would like to wish him all the best for the future on behalf of everyone at the club”, the manager added.
Throughout the two years Manu has played for the Albion, he has made 17 appearances and scored three goals.
