Manu is returning to Holland


Brighton & Hove Albion striker Elvis Manu has joined Dutch Eredivisie side Go Ahead Eagles on a loan deal until the end of the current season.


Manu has struggled to break into Albion's first-team squad since he arrived from Feyenoord in the summer of 2015, although he has scored three goals in six appearances in the EFL Cup and Checkatrade Trophy this season.


Manager Chris Hughton said, "The form of our other strikers has made it hard for Elvis to get game time in the Championship.


"He's worked hard to breakthrough, but his opportunities have been very limited, so this move back to Holland benefits all parties.


"It gives him the chance to play regular football and get that game time, and we wish him well for his return to Holland."
