Cahill Linked With Loan Exit

Cahill Linked With Loan Exit

The latest reports are linking Gary Cahill with a loan move, the most recent has him off to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Martin O'Neill has said all along that he will consider loan moves for the younger or 'fringe' players in order to get them first team football.

He told the official site: 'It wouldn't surprise me that clubs were looking at us thinking because we've signed a player or two, someone might be available. It's the usual suspects and I'll monitor the situation for everyone's concern. I'll not make any promises because we haven't got the biggest squad in the world, but by the same token, I wouldn't mind some people getting some games. So I'll monitor it and I'll see.'

'I'd prefer players going out and getting experience, especially if you're playing intermittent reserve games.'

The Cahill link seems an obvious one, with Zat Knight and Curtis Davies now also competing for the central role, although I must admit I think Cahill is a super player and would hate to see him leave on anything other than a loan. The report I read was in the Express & Star and to be honest, had little substance and no quotes.

O'Neill said the reserve game against Fulham the other night was absolutely full of scouts, and we got the usual phone calls over the next day or two.'

I don't think he meant the dib dib dib variety either!

A loan move is fine, but don't get selling him MON. it's better he plays first team footy, than playing in the reserves.

I would like to see him go out on loan and prove that he's worthy of a 1st team place at Villa. I think he's one of Englands brightest prospects at CB since John Terry cam through so selling him would be a major mistake!!

If he was to go out on loan then that would mean he would be going.After breaking through I dont think its natural to go out on loan again

Hope you are wrong Pking, although I can see your logic!

Must NOT be sold. Future England centre half. Couple of months on loan wouldn't do him any harm though.

Enjoyed his time at Burnley and came back a better player. It'll will be good if he went to a side who have a decent manager aiding his development. If he does go on loan then we should have the option of re-calling him at anytime. 3 centre backs aren't enough with regards to cover....

Tough one to call, but no doubt Gary himself would rather be contributing to a cause elsewhere, as opposed to twiddling his thumbs sitting on the Villa Park bench, and occasionally turning out for the reserves in an attempt to keep somewhere near match fit.

I'm intrigued to know and eventually see just how good this Davies is. Those I know who support Albion have mixed views and most are wary of his Premiership ability, but all are keen to sell him for 10 million.

He's 5th choice now so he either goes on loan , and hangs on for Ollie and Laursen to retire or he moves on . Mon obviously doesn't think he's up to it just yet . Him and Ridge looked good bets until we saw just how good Laursen is and to be honest Cahill is light years away from that.

Loan him to Wolves. He'll play a lot and only get better for when we need him.
