Lowestoft Town striker Jefferson Louis has been told he can leave the club if the right offer comes in.

Louis has been made available for transfer and his name circulated to other clubs and it looks as though the summer signing from Margate will be on his way.

Louis was given last weekend off to 'get his head right' as the Blues beat Tamworth 3-2 at Crown Meadow but was on target in the Blues' Suffolk Premier Cup victory over Felixstowe & Walton.

Given Lowestoft's injury problems Louis is likely to come back into contention for tomorrow's Conference North clash against North Ferriby but joint boss Micky Chapman insists the 35-year-old will give his all to the Blues' cause. 'Jeff has made it clear that he wants to play week in, week out and we've told him that we can't guarantee that,' said Chapman. 'He has been told he can find another club and that's the situation at the moment.

'Until then he is our player and he came in on Tuesday and played well. We know that he will give the club everything he's got and I was pleased to see him get a goal.'

Chris Henderson and Erkan Okay are struggling with groin injuries whilst Dan Gleeson will be hoping to shrug off a head injury sustained against Tamworth. Rickie Hayles missed the win over Felixstowe whilst Lee Smith has been out with a back problem. The management will give Bradley Woods-Garness time to see how his knee settles down after playing in midweek whilst Andrew Fisk (knee), Curtis Haynes-Brown (hamstring) and Ashlee Jones (hamstring) are all facing a race against time to prove their fitness.

Despite the injury worries Chapman feels Lowestoft are at their best when they're fighting against the odds.

'You can see that togetherness in us again – we've been very clear that this season is about consolidation for us. We are adjusting to the travel, the level of football but we are on the right road. We've got 20 points on the board but we know there's still a long way to go.'
