Striker Florin Andone will be returning to Brighton and Hove Albion early from his loan spell at Cadiz.

That’s is according to Diario de Cadiz and La Voz Digital, with the latter carrying comments from Cadiz president Manuel Vizcaíno confirming the early termination.

Andone joined the Spanish side on loan in the summer transfer window when it was made clear he was not a part of Brighton’s plans for this season.

He joined them in the hope of playing regular first-team football, with the club hopeful he could add the goals they wanted to their side.

Things have not worked out that way, though, with Andone barely featuring for Cadiz during his time there and several reports in Spain making it clear they wanted to send him back to Brighton early.

Both Diario de Cadiz and La Voz Digital cover that today, with the former stating that his loan deal ‘will be terminated’ in January so he can return to his parent club.

While there is no official agreement between Brighton and Cadiz to make that happen, Vizcaíno has confirmed the plans and is quoted on the subject.

“Our objective is for him to leave,” La Voz report him saying.

“He gives everything with his behaviour in training, and he has the footballing level. Maybe his head is not good enough for him.”

That should bring an end to speculation about the striker’s future for the time being, with this ‘risky gamble’ having ‘turned out badly’ for all concerned.

Cadiz still need to find an agreement with Brighton, of course, but we can’t see them being too difficult to deal with given how badly things have gone for Andone in Spain.
