Chesterfield have cancelled the contract of forward Zavon Hines.
The 29-year-old signed for the club in January on an 18-month contract but had been expected to leave following the Spireites’ relegation out of the EFL. Hines was one of numerous players told in May by new manager Martin Allen he could leave. Allen later spoke to Hines over the summer and it was agreed he would stay, with the Jamaican-born, London-raised player earning high praise from his manager after three goals in August.
The former West Ham United youngster has made 20 appearances so far this season, scoring four times, the last of which was in the 1-1 home draw with Bromley last Tuesday. It was Hines’ penalty that rescued a point in stoppage time.
Chesterfield are on a dismal run of form, winless in the Vanarama National League since August and now in the relegation places. It has led to manager Allen making several players available for transfer, one of which was Hines.
