Cambridge United can today confirm the Football Club have reached an agreement with Mansfield Town to allow George Maris to complete a move away from the Abbey Stadium on undisclosed terms.
Head Coach Mark Bonner commented: “Firstly we would like to thank George for his commitment, hard work and performances during his time here at the Abbey Stadium. We are very grateful for the contribution he has made to the Club.
"Whilst we are of course naturally disappointed to be losing a player of George’s ability, we believe this decision is in the best interests of both George and the Club.
“Ensuring we manage our overall budget to be as competitive as possible on the pitch, has also been a factor we took into consideration. This has been a guiding principle behind all our decisions regarding our playing staff this summer - departures, re-signings and additions.
“Our squad planning is well advanced. We expect to be announcing new signings very soon, and now that we have a start date for the new season, we can get back to work and prepare in earnest.”
