Donnelly Hoping For Loan Move

Donnelly Hoping For Loan Move

Scott Donnelly says he's hoping to secure a loan deal soon as Brendan Rodgers has told him that it's going to be hard to get him involved with the amount of midfielders he has.

The 22 year-old, who was signed by former boss Paulo Sousa from Aldershot Town, said he was disappointed to see Sousa leave and he's now looking to go out and loan to prove himself to the new manager.

'It was disappointing to see Paulo go because he was the man that brought me in,'

'But the lads have done well under Brendan and it's been hard to get an opportunity to show him what I can do.

'I think it's going to be hard for me to do anything here at the moment with the way the squad is.

'I've spoken to the gaffer a couple of times asking whether I would feature. He told me it would be hard to fit me in with all the midfielders he has.

'I said I'd like to go out on loan in order to get myself some games and prove that I am good enough to feature in his squad.

'There have been a few interested clubs, but nothing concrete just yet.

'We should know in the next couple of days hopefully.'

Donnelly insists he wants to play here and has 3 years on his contract to prove himself, but he's looking for a loan move to prove his goalscoring quality:

'You can't just sulk about it. You work hard and hope your chance comes,'

'I could be in a much worse situation. Of course I want to play here, but I don't think I'm that close to team selection, so hopefully I'll get a chance to get some games somewhere else.

'At the moment I'm not involved, but I'm not going to give up on that.

'I have three years to prove myself, and that gives me some time to do that.

'I want to go away, score as many goals as I can and force the gaffer into calling me back. That's what I hope going out on loan can do for me.

'I'm hoping to show people the quality I have.'
