Ward Hoping To Extend O'Leary Loan

Ward Hoping To Extend O'Leary Loan

Cheltenham Town manager John Ward says he is hoping to extend the loan stay of midfielder Kristian O'Leary.

The 29 year-old has played in their last four games and produced a man of the match performance on his debut in win against Brentford.

His initial one-month loan expires after Saturday's game and although O'Leary wants to return to the club he supports, Ward is keen to keep him on at Whaddon Road.

Ward said: 'I would like to keep Kris and I think he would like to stay,'

'We are waiting for Kenny to make a decision towards the end of the week.'


With 3 central midfielders sidelined - Way, Tudur-Jones and McDonald, Kenny Jackett may decide to recall O'Leary as back-up for the busy Christmas period ahead.

Ward added:

'Kenny has some injuries that he needs to look at this week and see if he can afford to manage without Kris or if he needs him back,' Ward added.

'I will respect and understand any decision Kenny makes because he has to make it for Swansea and rightly so.'

I think Kris has been such a good servant for the club that the time as come to allow the player to decide his own future. If Kris feels cheltenham are the club that will help prolong his footballing career then let the man go, as for our centre midfield i feel we have enough options to allow this loan to be extended..

I still think Kris wants to return to Swansea though, but if Jackett is not going to renew his contract like some of the rumours going around then Kris will have to move own, although he'll be sad to leave us. We don't play Cheltenham until 3rd Feb.
