Wide man set to sign for League 2 rivals
LEWIS Alessandra has turned down a contract offer with the Shrimps and is set to sign for a League 2 club this week.
Alessandra had originally agreed to sign a new deal but had a change of mind after an offer from another club.
Shrimps' boss Jim Bentley said he was "hugely disappointed'' to see Alessandra go but wished him well for the future.
He said: "Lewis has done really well for us over the past two years and I am obviously hugely disappointed to lose him.
"We had a chat a few weeks ago and he said he intended to sign on again but has since had a change of heart with another club coming in for him.
"Although I am disappointed it means we will have to look at other avenues and stay positive. I have been talking to a lot of players in recent weeks and will keep chasing a number of targets we have in mind.''
