Villa's Routledge Winging His Way To Wolves?

Villa's Routledge Winging His Way To Wolves?

The Sunday Mercury has suggested that Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Mick McCarthy is interested in taking Villa winger Wayne Routledge on loan as they are struggling with a couple of injuries in their squad.

Apparently McCarthy was at Villa Park on Thursday watching Routledge - who had an ok game - against Litex Lovech in the UEFA Cup draw.



As the Mercury say, the 23-year old former Spurs and Crystal Palace winger has struggled to make any sort of impact since moving for £1.25million last January, so maybe a loan and regular first team football wouldn't be a bad option for him?

Routledge has one made two sub appearances in the league and the Litex game was his first start. He would fit in nicely to fill the void left at Wolves by injured pair Michael Kightly and Matt Jarvis.

Would still really like to see Routledge make a go of it at Villa, at only 23 he has age on his side, but regular first team football to get him up to speed and restore his confidence would surely be a better option that playing mostly just for the reserves?

Like the lad, but cant see a future for him at Villa, Wolves would be a good move for him and maybe he could break into the Villa side on his return, but I cant see it.

Is he only 23? Hope he gets a break then comes back with some form. Difficult for the non-regular first team players at Villa to get any sort of strong match practice.

i nearly wanted to rant as i tot i saw "Whinging" and read no such comments from the player =/ id rather Router stay. hopefully MON wakes up and demote one of his favoured central midfielder and tell his wingers that he will play them. we need Milner/Router now. time to REALLY tear defences apart

Lets be honest, Mon said when he signed him that if the Lad works hard he'll get a go.. Well, for my money MON has been un-true to his word. Despite waynes promise, despite his good pre-season.. He's still not been given a go in any game of importance. Lets address the facts: yes WR hasn't played much footie the last few seasons.. so you would expect him not to be at the top of his game from the start. He needed a run, and Mon promised a fair crack at the startin line-up. Let the boy go and make a career for himself. I believe there is a quality player in there!

If he had a final ball in his armoury I'd tend to agree with you notaspur, but he doesn't. Bags of talent and trickery, but the final ball, or lack of, always lets him down.

A move to a Championship team, possibly The Wolves, initially on loan, would probably be a very good move for him, if only to see him playing regularly.
