Loan report- Martinez, Aneke and Wellington feature

Damian Martinez completed 90 minutes as Sheffield Wednesday lost 2-1 to Ipswich Town. The Argentinian, who was making his final appearance for his temporary side, failed to hold a shot from Daryl Murphy, which allowed Tommy Smith to score from close range. Benik Afobe missed out due to illness.

Chuks Aneke returned from suspension to play the final 13 minutes as Crewe Alexandra beat Preston North End, one of his former loan sides, 2-0. Aneke has scored 16 goals in 44 appearances this season, with his Arsenal future still a subject of some debate.

Wellington played the whole game as Murcia beat Hercules 3-2.

Ju-Young Park was not involved as Watford were beaten 4-1 by Huddersfield Town. The striker made just two league appearances for the Championship side.

Francis Coquelin was not part of the Freiburg side that lost 2-0 to Schalke. Similarly, Johan Djourou played no part as Hamburg lost 4-1 to Bayern Munich.

Daniel Boateng failed to make the bench as Hibernian drew 1-1 with Partick Thistle.

Ignasi Miquel, meanwhile, was again not involved as Leicester City beat Doncaster Rovers 1-0.




  1. So frustrating when players out on loan for the main purpose of gaining first team gametime, not only don’t make the first 11 but don’t even get named on the bench. They may aswell be playing with the under 21’s. Better loan deals needed for next season.

    1. Until the fa allow b teams to enter the pyramid we will continue to be in the shadow of spain.

      The loan system works for the players that are below the Spanish 2nd tier level, but our players that can’t quite make our first team should be playing in our b team against the.likes of forest, Blackburn, etc then if they can’t make that.level, should be.playing in the next tier against the.likes of Mansfield and port Vale, etc.

      1. B teams are plausible when you have 10 players with dodgy papers, or if you’re allowed to lure kids all over the country, which is limited in England because of the player developement rules.

  2. B Team is only to the advantage of top clubs. If we think of only arsenal, then it’s a no brainer. But if you think of the leagues as a whole, then it’s a wholly selfish endeavour that only ensures the strong stay strong. The Segunda B isn’t anywhere near as competitive or as strong as the Championship, let alone the leagues below. In England, we have am very large number of well supported lower league clubs.

    It would be better however if big clubs were allowed to have official partnerships with smaller clubs for closer relationship and loaning, along with clauses in our loan contract that stipulate a certain number/minutes of expected games, and if not achieved then loanees can be recalled without any payment whatsoever.
