Arron Davies has gone on loan to Brighton ’til January.
Sorry – couldn’t resist! On a sensible note though, despite the occasional doom-sayers and grumbleweeds, I don’t think we can really complain too much – we made some excellent signings this summer – and whilst we’d all like to have seen a defender or two come in, there is still the option of bringing in people on loan to cover some positions until January.
I lost track of the outlandish names being touted with joining us – Michael Dawson and Gareth Bale haven’t moved elsewhere, Ibrahima Sonko went to Hull, and well, who else were we linked with? None of them turned up anyway!
Good luck to Davies at Brighton – he renews his working with Russell Slade, who of course presided over his sale to Forest after that play off game which sadly remains the midfielder’s most impactful day’s work at the City Ground. He showed some promise preseason and in the cup games, but we do have a lot of competition in midfield so a loan move probably makes sense.
