- Loan Watch: Week 7 - September 26, 2018
Only 8 out of those out on loan played this week but from those 8 came goals, assist and great saves which helped their clubs to some good results.
Danny Ings (Southampton)
Another great week for the striker as he made in three goals in four starts for the South Coast club, he won and scored the penalty that put Southampton two nil up before being pegged back by Brighton on Monday night football.
Ex Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier believe’s Ings is just what Southampton needed, speaking to Sky Sports Le Tissier said
“The most important thing as a forward at a new club is to get early goals,”
“He’s got a couple so far so it’s a really good start and long may it continue. He is such a quality footballer and he’s really given the whole club a big lift. I think that’s what was needed as the club has struggled for goals a bit over the last few seasons.
“He’ll raise the standard of the players around him as well. I’m sure he would have picked up some good things at Liverpool. I know he was injured a lot, but he’s still had a decent amount of time out on the training ground and if you can’t learn from training alongside the players they had at Liverpool then there’s no point being in football.”
“He was superb and I knew the goals would come. I knew as soon as he started relaxing in front of goal the goals would come, He’s in a terrific place.”
Marko Grujic (Hertha Berlin)
This was a more steady week for the Serbian midfielder, he played the full ninety minutes for the German outfit in their two two draw against Wolfsburg, he did manage to pick up a yellow card in the first half but was able to put that behind him to put in a composed display in the second half.
The combative midfielder will be hoping for more of the same in the upcoming weeks as he looks to catch the eye of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
Loris Karius (Besiktas)
The German goalkeeper made his home debut for Besiktas and after what can only be described as an interesting debut last week he would have been hoping for a much quieter afternoon.
While he may not have got his wish for a quiet week he was certainly up to the challenge and pulled off a string of impressive saves in a man of the match performance against Yeni Malatyaspor as Besiktas won the game 2-1.
Shey Ojo (Reims)
Been a slow start so far for Ojo, after his 12 minutes last week he got a little bit extra this week coming on as second half substitute against Nantes as the away side pushed for a winner, he will hope to start making some starts in the coming weeks.
Herbie Kane (Doncaster)
The young midfielder continued his fine form for Doncaster Rovers who ran out 3-1 winners against Walsall with Kane playing in the centre of the park, It has been a really good loan move for Kane however bigger challenges will lie ahead as he looks to step up to the next level.
Corey Whelan (Crewe)
Big things are expected of the Republic of Ireland under 21 international who will be spending the first half of the season on loan at Crewe Alexandra.
He made his debut for Crewe this week and slotted easily into the left back position, he was never really troubled by the Cheltenham attack and finished the game with a clean sheet to his name.
Whelan like Kane future may lie away at Anfield but he will be hoping to show other clubs that he can play at a higher level and at 20 still has time on his side.
