Four Players Shipped Out

Four Players Shipped Out

It appears that a loan fest has begun down at Ashburton Grove.

If reports are to be believed, Mart Poom, Arturo Lupoli, Fabrice Muamba & Sebastian Larsson are all being pre-pared to go out on a season long loan.

Derby County, who look to be on the verge of signing winger Ryan Smith on a permanent deal, are seeking to take Arturo Lupoli & Mart Poom on temporary deals.

Manager Billy Davies said, 'Lupoli is a goalscorer by nature and a player with great pace, but we have asked about several players at different Premiership clubs,'

'We inquired a little while ago (about Poom) but sometimes an inquiry is just a phone call to check out the player's situation.'

The loans of Fabrice Muamba & Seb Larsson however seem to be in a much more advanced stage, if not already complete.

Blues manager, Steve Bruce is delighted at the prospect.

'Fabrice is very highly regarded. He is a bit of a Patrick Vieira kind, he is strong, can win the ball and get up and down,' said Bruce.'

'Sebastian played left-back against us at St Andrew's last season. He's versatile. He can play on the right, in the middle, he can play right or left-back. He's a naturally gifted footballer.

'The two lads we knew a bit about already. Every club keeps and eye on the youngsters at a place like Arsenal, and we are no different.

'We all know they want to let them out on loan to learn. The two of them we had identified if they ever did become available - and they have.

'They are coming in to bolster the squad and to gain experience, they will want to come and play here and make their mark and I'm sure they will.

'Arsene Wenger certainly thinks they are at an age when they can hold their own physically and they need more than reserve team football.'

The players going on loan can only benefit from the experience of playing week in week out in the lower leagues as it would be very unlikey that any young fringe players would get much first team action in the coming months.

Mart Poom & Larsson I dont think will make it, but Lupoli is an excellent striker and I can gurantee Muamba will be back, he is awesome.

Larsson came very highly rated, but I've yet to see it myself in his limited appearances. Poom is a good 3rd choice and it's a shame to see him go, maybe AW is lining up a keeper? Lupoli and Muamba I'm very excited about and I hope that Arturo can beef up a bit cos he looks as natural a goalscorer as they come.

If Muamba was that 'awesome' he wouldn't have been sent on loan. We are short of holding midfielders as it is.

At this rate who is going to be left as back-up to the first team once the inevitable injuries & suspensions kick in. We are going to be playing a load of 14/15 year olds as our cover.

Feeling slightly unnerved at the moment. Last season we used a lot of our reserve players as we had so many injuries. so far this coming season we've signed one player, had 3 or 4 main players leave/retire and now we're letting 4 or 5 reserve players go out on loan or being sold!!! I'm sure AW knows what he's doing, but at the moment if we have an injury plagued season like last year we're *****ed!!!

Muamba has been sent on loan because he has great potential. But he needs to play and learn from the mistakes a player of his age will inevitably make, and better he make them for someone else than us.
