Weston AFC have announced defender Pascal Kpohomouh has left the club.

The 19-year-old, who can play right-back or centre-back, arrived at The Seagulls last month following his departure from Southampton to help strengthen the squad following Chris Knowles' injury and made three appearances.

The England under-18 international had trials with Derby County, Middlesbrough and Stoke City before agreeing a deal to move to BS24 to become Weston's fifth signing of the summer.

"We thank Pascal for his efforts at the club, he came in at short notice and helped us out," manager Scott Bartlett told the club's social media pages.

"It didn't work out for either party as intended, so we've parted ways and we wish him all the best for his future career."

Ben Whitehead has found the net in both matches played for Cirencester Town, since joining the Southern League Division One South side on a month's loan.
