John Gregory After Lee Hendrie

John Gregory After Lee Hendrie

It looks like Lee Hendrie could be soon on his way as John Gregory's QPR have now joined Crystal palace and several other clubs looking for a loan move for the Villa midfielder

Martin O'Neill told the official site:

'There are a number of teams who are looking to take him on loan and I wouldn't want to betray confidences by naming them. John Gregory has enquired about him. He played for the reserves last night; we will see how fit he is because it is all about games with him. If he wants to give himself a chance of getting into the first team then he'll want to get himself as fit as possible.'

Adding, 'I wasn't the one who instigated the possibility of him going out on loan, it seemed as if his agent wanted that, but even so I am not in disagreement with him because he can go, wherever that may be, and get games. We'll know more later today. Crystal Palace have maintained an interest and everybody is just waiting until he gets fit, and then hopefully he'll be able to prove a point.'

He has had his ups and downs, but one thing is for sure his blood runs claret and blue, I for one wish him all the best whatever he decides, can't realy see him making it back into the starting eleven, but prove me and all the other doubters wrong Lee. UTV

agreed, he frustrated the hell out of many of us over the years, such a talent but not always used, but I do wish him luck and hope he can find a regular team place somewhere.

Glad to see the back of him really

Should be kept in my opinion, but he needs games so it would be wise to let him go out on loan.

Claret and blue through his veins? I thought Lee was a blue nose...

Lol, it may have seemed that way with some of his performances, but how many times do you see a promising young talent, who gets touted as the next -insert hero here-only for the pressure on their young shoulders or life (women, drink, drugs) to come along and bu**er things up, I am sure if he could turn the clock back, there are a few things he would have done differently, but I think that applies to most of us, the only difference is we are not under the spotlight, or earning thousands a week, and yes many of us would have loved the chance to have those type of problems, but everyone handles things differently, its just a shame when such a promising talent goes to waste.

Steff.. as i understand it Lee Hendrie is a confirmed blue nose. A pal of mine has drank in the same social circle as him, and says he's often heard Lee state it uncategorically himself. Either way, I'm a firm believer that he's wasted his talent, his best years are behind him and he needs to go. Can't see MON putting up with his stupid, classless weekend antics anyway.

Could be a good move for him, unless of course Lee is looking for a move nearer home.
