I'd rather he be an option on our bench than an option on Sevilla's tbh.

If we are considering loaning him out it should be to a team where he is expected to be a regular starter IMO.

That would be ideal but hard finding a team where your guaranteed to start with half the season gone. Maybe a team that has a few injuries up top would be perfect for him to get some good minutes under his belt.

Would rather he stays in UK to help adapt more for next season. A premier League loan is very unlikely but maybe championship or even rangers. Celtic are signing Adam idah on loan so that rules out there. I just think that staying in UK and being a starter even at a lower level is better than being backup in Spain getting minutes here and there as that's all he'll get. He's better staying with us than going to Sevilla IMO

If there is a guarantee that they see him as a starting player then it makes sense. 6 months of playing in a fantastic league.

They have three Argentine players as well, should help him settle.
Good for his development, and to be honest we could just as well play Scarlett or Lankshear at this point. Good for everyone's development.

He will get more meaningful game time there so thats a good move for him even if he is a bench player at first.

At least this must mean he's recovered. I feared he was going to be out for months.

I think that is a good move for the kid. Hopefully he will get a lot of first team action with them at a high level.

I presume they've been given assurances about his playing time.

There was a photos video of him training on the pitch a day or two ago, don't think he is fully back, but mustn't be far off if he's going out on loan.

Good luck to him. Hopefully he gets plenty of minutes, and Coco teaches him the ways of the shithouser.

Such a shame he didn't get a chance at meaningful munites with us this last month.

Minutes are what matters at this stage for him and Sevilla owe us a favour after giving them Coco and taking Gil off their hands.

Makes total sense, especially given that Dane can't go out on loan. No point them both sharing the cameo chances that will come up.

Good luck to him. Have to say I'm surprised at how quickly he's recovered - I wasn't really expecting to see him again this season.
