MILLWALL boss Ian Holloway has chosen to end PSG winger Jean-Eudes Maurice’s trial with the club.

The 28-year-old had been training with the Lions for the past week but did not feature in the 1-0 friendly win at Dartford on Tuesday night.

“I’ve let Maurice go,” Holloway said.

“I don’t really want to say he wasn’t good enough but what I’m looking for is very specific. With his age and where he is, I didn’t want to waste any more of his time.

“To be honest with you it’s a very high standard I want to bring in here.

“I believe some of our kids will play next season so if Fred Onyedinma has looked better than him and sharper than him, Maurice wouldn’t get a chance.

“I’d rather work with Fred at the moment and I knew that all along, so he had a bit of a tough task on his hands.

However, former Everton winger Magaye Gueye has been invited to continue his trial in SE16.

Holloway added: “He’s got some talent. I’ve invited him back but whether that means I get him or not, I don’t know.

“I think he’s got a lot of ability and maybe we could polish him up if the group is strong enough to get him fitter.

“He created three chances in a training game the other day and we scored all three of them.”

When asked about the trial of former Fulham defender Matthew Briggs, Holloway said: “I’m sure he will still be here.”
