Sancho Loan Move Off

Sancho Loan Move Off

Brent Sancho's expected loan move to the Swans has been called off.

Gillingham highly criticised Swansea City AFC for trying to change the deal and chairman Mr Scally, who incidentally, had a bust up with Sancho told Gillingham's official site:

'We had agreed a deal with Swansea yesterday that would have seen Brent join them on loan.

'But they now want to renege on that deal and quite frankly I'm furious with them for not honouring their word, and Brent will be returning to Gillingham with immediate effect.'

Mr Scally added: 'We will not get caught out again in any further dealings with them.'

This comes as dissapointing news for us with the amount of injury problems we have in defence. Trundle could face another spell on the sidelines and Ricketts was sick during Tuesday's game against Colchester.

Kenny Jackett later defended Swansea City Football Club and he told BBC Wales: "That can change the whole situation and I have to look after my club's interests,"

"We didn't know we had to re-apply for somebody who already had a work permit.

"What Gillingham said also was that Brent wasn't allowed to play against them.

"That's a potential four games out of 12 he could have missed and when I told (Gills chairman Paul) Mr Scally that he wasn't best pleased, but nor was I."

Scally said he was furious with Swansea for "reneging" on the proposed two-month deal, adding: "We will not get caught out again in any further dealings with them."

Lets face it, Scally is an arsehole of the highest order and generally gets up someones back no matter what he does

This is a farce and we should forget him and leave him where he is to pick up his wages and not play for them . I bet their Chairman is trying to be greedy thinking we are desperate so i say leave it .

This is very dissapointing and part to blame are Gillingham who would have known about the Home Office problems.
