Duo head out on loan

Defenders move to gain experience

Julian Finney

A couple more moves to report on today. Jason Denayer has headed to Celtic for the season whilst Greg Leigh is off to Crewe until January.

The moves should be good for both players, at different stages of their development but both highly regarded at the club. Patrick Vieira spoke about both players:

On Denayer:

"I really think Jason to Celtic is a good loan move," Vieira declared. "It's a great chance for him to go and get some experience.

"He's going to a team who will have a chance to play in the Champions League or Europa League so it is a really positive move."

And Leigh:

"Greg needed the loan because I think he needs to challenge himself a little bit more at this stage of his career."

"So going to Crewe and playing league football will be a really good experience for him."
