AFTER he turned down several loan moves, Crawley Town have finally agreed a deal to pay up the remaining months on John Akinde's deal.

The 23-year-old striker has been restricted to a handful of substitute appearances for the Reds this campaign, with his only goal coming in the Sussex Senior Cup.

He scored once in the league for the Reds, in a 2-1 defeat at Shrewsbury Town on February 27, 2012.

Crawley boss Richie Barker has often expressed his distress at Akinde's unwillingness to go out on loan despite receiving several offers.

"John has turned down several offers to go on loan this season and he has now decided to look elsewhere to re-start his career. We thank him for his services to the club and wish him all the best for the future,” Barker added.
