Why? This is a great move for the kid to get some experience.
You hardly believe he would be making appearances for us this season?
Well, for one, it's not necessarily a good sign if you look at all the young players we have sent out on loan the past few years. How many have come back to make the 1st team? Grujic? Ojo? Ejaria? Woodburn? Kent? Wilson? Brewster?
Sure, he may be the exception (only time will tell), and granted we are out of the Carabao Cup, but i thought he would be better off playing the FA Cup, academy games and training with the 1st team with some bench / late sub appearances vs. playing in the Championship.
