Notts County have confirmed the departure of loan players Inih Effiong and Kenton Richardson.

Former Dover Athletic frontman Effiong joined Notts on loan from Stevenage back in January for the remainder of the season.

Sunderland defender Richardson, meanwhile, signed in early-March on a two-month arrangement.

New Notts boss Ian Burchnall told the club's website: "With restrictions on the number of loan players we can name in a matchday squad, we feel it's going to be very difficult to guarantee game time for Inih and Kenton, and therefore think it's in their best interests to return to their clubs.

"We thank them for their efforts and wish them well for the future."
