Hines leaves Chesterfield FC

Chesterfield FC have confirmed Zavon Hines has left the club

It follows Manager Martin Allen announcing that a number of players are up for transfer or loan 

A brief statement on the club's website says: "Zavon Hines has today left Chesterfield after his contract was cancelled by mutual consent.

"Hines joined the Spireites from Maidstone United in January."

The club later added that Hines had left the club for personal reasons: "Due to family issues, the player expressed a desire to continue his career at a club closer to his London home.

"It was therefore agreed that his contract would be terminated at no cost to the club.

"The club would like to wish Zavon all the best for the future."

Earlier this week, Chesterfield manager Martin Allen released the following statement: "Clearly, changes need to be made as we have not won enough points and to be honest, I'm fed up of hearing we played well and that it was a good performance, only to draw.

"Kyel Reid, Marc-Antoine Fortune and Zavon Hines all live down in London and it's best for them and for us to find clubs in the London area. I am not going into further details as to why I've had to make this decision.

"Shwan Jalal has been made available for loan. Now he's fit and well, he needs to be out playing first-team football.

"Joe Anyon is already available on a free transfer or loan.

"Michael Nelson has also been made available on a free transfer or loan.

"Now Robbie Weir is fit following his injury, he's also available on a free transfer or loan.

"We need to strengthen this team and we will."
