AFC Telford United have cut short goalkeeper Max Bramley's loan from Leicester City – and replaced him with Stoke's Josef Bursik.

Bramley, 21, was due to stay with the Bucks for the season but has gone back to the Foxes after losing the No.1 shirt to Andy Wycherley.

England Under-19 international Bursik has been brought in on loan from the Potters for the remainder of the campaign.

Bursik spent the first half of this season with Hednesford Town in the Northern Premier – one tier below Telford – and made more than 20 appearances.

The outgoing Bramley was the Bucks' first-choice shot-stopper for a decent portion of this term.

He made 11 National League North appearances, but an injury opened the door to local lad Wycherley, who has remained between the sticks since and will now have Bursik vying for his spot.

Telford have also decided against extending the loan of winger Yusifu Ceesay from Blackpool.

Ceesay found game time hard to come by during a one-month stay from the Tangerines, only coming on as a late substitute a couple of times.

The Bucks said in a statement: "AFC Telford United can confirm that both Max Bramley and Yusifu Ceesay have returned to their respective parent clubs.

"Everyone at the club would like to thank both Max and Yusifu for all their effort whilst at the club and we wish them all the very best in the future."
