Leeds Force have seen Great Britain international Devon Van Oostrum’s short-term loan ended after just one game.

He is to join Spanish LEB Oro side Huesca in will be a fifth team this season for the guard who is under contract at Spanish ACB outfit Baskonia.

The 21-year-old, raised in nearby Sheffield, has also spent abortive spells in Finland and Croatia but had 16 points against Plymouth in what proved to be a brief BBL debut.

For Great Britain at Eurobasket 2013 in Slovenia, the Dutch-born playmaker averaged 7.2 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game including a 13 point game against eventual European champions France.

Meanwhile Sheffield Sharks have released American rookie Allen Payne and brought back veteran Mike Cook to the club for a second spell, having left in 2010 following a BBL Cup triumph.

“We are pretty keen to make a change which provides certain reasonable expectations,” said Sharks coach Atiba Lyons.”With Mike we know he is a serious offensive threat most nights of the week and his formidable reputation was sustained at all his teams since the Sharks.

“Obviously he needs time to settle in and re-acquaint himself with our system and of course the team which is largely different to his last time here.”
