Johnson May Be Tempted By Loan Market

Following the departure of Everton youngster John Lundstram when it was mutually agreed to end his loan spell early because it was felt it was best for him to have a greater guarantee of games back in their U21 side than he would have with us moving forward now, manager Gary Johnson has said he is not adverse to dipping into the loan market again should a good additional become plausible.

Lundstram joined us back at the end of November and certainly got good game time under his belt, starting 15 games in all competitions, with a further appearance from the bench and even helped himself to two goals in our league victory over Blackpool and then our league loss to Derby County.

So it was a pretty good loan experience for us and him, but with him falling slightly down the pecking order of late - his last appearance coming on March 1st and only playing four games back in February - it was agreed that given he may not get as much game time as he had enjoyed earlier in the campaign, it would be better suited for him to have U21 run outs to continue his development and build on his experiences with us.

We are therefore effectively a man down on pure number terms now, and the gaffer has not ruled out trying to strengthen us should an opportunity arise.

Speaking to the Western Daily Press Johnson explained that he certainly wasn't ruling out a dip into the transfer market again but it would have to be for the right player.

'We're always looking because we're always looking to improve. There are not many great loans happening and not too many great loans out there. We have to keep chasing, looking and keep waiting for the right time.'

Johnson adds that especially at this stage anybody really in form but on the fringes won't be allowed out because clubs protect their own position, but that doesn't mean that a deal can't necessarily be done but it's about patience as much as tenacity but he feels it would be ridiculous to rule out another deal or two because you always have to look to improve.

However, not ruling it out, certainly does not mean there is something in the pipeline or likely to happen.

Again it's a wait and see moment.
