Marcos Painter Joins On Loan

Marcos Painter Joins On Loan

With Tommy Williams and Garry Monk on the sidelines, manager Kenny Jackett has taken appropriate action by signing defender Marcus Painter on a month's loan.

Jackett commented on the signing and said: ''We've had permission to sign Marcos on an emergency one-month loan,'' Jackett said.

''We've seen him play mainly in Birmingham's reserves and he's capable of playing either at left-back or in central defence.

''It was an area we felt we needed to strengthen after losing Tommy and, all being well, Marcos will join up with us on Thursday ahead of our game at Port Vale this weekend.''


The 20 year-old came through the youth system with Championship club Birmingham City and made his first team debut against Scunthorpe in the Carling Cup last year.

He made his Premiership debut 3 months later when he started for Birmingham in the 1-0 win against Fulham.

He can play in the centre or at left back and is reknown for his hard tackling, something we need down here I think.
