Talk about glass half empty.Dont get this loan. Surely lose/lose. If he is great, and suspect he may be, his value goes up or he gets recalled. If he is an also-ran we pay top dollar wages. Of course thats not having any idea what the deal is and whether we have an option at the end of the year to sign him (sensible) but he is surplus to requirements and considering KR advertised that he was his number one target and that money was available after talking with Tiger for the right players, it seems we couldnt afford him @ what? 250-500?
Based on yesterday’s performance he is clearly a very good acquisition and against L1 teams will get more room and be even more influential going forward. My one concern without knowing his previous disciplinary record, is that his enthusiasm will occasionally border on recklessness and we may well lose him with suspensions. I don’t see anybody in the current squad who could fill in from the current squad so another attacking midfielder is a priority.
