There's never been any talk of him not training well enough. He seems to be a model pro. When he has got on the pitch he has done well at all levels. The only thing left is to see how he does at our level. Sink or swim time. Eventually we are going to have to use him or let him go. May get away with on a last loan to a premier league side but that just delays the decision to actually play him for us or sell him. If the issue, which is the only suggestion I've seen put forward, is that he can't play for us as he doesn't fit then it's pointless to loan him out again. Nobody plays quite like us so that question will still be unanswered when he comes back whether he does well or not.And the idea I keep refuting is that "given a chance" means he gets games, a position which is predicated on doing well for Derby being sufficient to be given such a role in the quad. That just isn't the way this stuff works.
