Loan report- Miquel and Djourou make league debuts

Johan Djourou, having recovered sufficiently from the injury that kept him out of action during the first couple of weeks of the season, made his competitive debut for Hamburg yesterday, with the Switzerland international completing 72 minutes of his temporary side’s 4-0 win over Braunschweig before being withdrawn.

Also in the Bundesliga, Francis Coquelin missed out through suspension as Freiburg drew 1-1 with Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

Joel Campbell should feature when Olympiacos face Leavadiakos tonight, whilst, in Spain, Wellington could be on the bench when Real Murcia take on his former loan club Ponferradina.

Back in England, Ignasi Miquel made his first league start for Leicester City, with the centre-back playing the entirety of their 2-1 defeat to Charlton Athletic. Miquel made several impressive clearances, but was booked for a late challenge on Yann Kermorgant.

In League One, Chuks Aneke started for Crewe Alexandra, but was replaced with 18 minutes remaining as his loan side suffered a disappointing 5-0 defeat away to Swindon Town.

It appears that Josh Vickers‘ loan spell with Canvey Island has been cut short after the goalkeeper played for Arsenal’s U18s during a 1-1 draw with Sunderland yesterday. Schoolboy Kaylen Hinds scored for the Gunners.



  1. Vickers is on a youth loan meaning arsenal have first call on him if they so wish. Similar to the one when afobe played at huddersfield but turned out for arsenal as well in the youth cup. I am suprised that they recalled him though as canvey really missed him and lost 5-0 without him. But I am more suprised that canvey have agreed to a deal like this.
