City have this evening loaned Cameron Stewart to Championship side Charlton.
Following his suboptimal display in the League Cup last week, one suspects his career is approaching a real crossroads – there’s clearly a talent in there, but since his injury at Ipswich 2½ years ago that talent has been very much hidden.
Coming in is Gedo, whom Tigers have re-signed on loan. He’s already scored goals for City and with no fee required is worth another look at.
City had reportedly spent much of “Transfer Deadline Day” hoping to bring Shane Long to the club, with a deal of around £5m being mooted for the West Brom and Ireland striker. That was reputedly dependent upon West Brom luring Chelsea striker to Romelu Lukaku to the Hawthorns; when he opted for Everton instead the deal fell through, despite the player having already flown over to Hull from Ireland.
Whatever. He’s a good player and would have been a very welcome addition, however City have already recruited this well this summer, as our displays this season already illustrate and we should try not to let a late annoyance shroud that.
