Norfolk Bound?

Norfolk Bound?

Not that long ago, rumours flooded the office that inferred the young midfielder we acquired from Crewe Alexandra, last summer, could be going out on loan.

Young Nick Powell, clearly one for the future, was linked with a move to the Championship side Doncaster Rovers, where it was believed that he`d get regular first-team football.

However, that scenario could be about to change with it now being inferred that Powell could be set for a season long loan move to the Premier League side, Norwich City.

The only problem I foresee with the latter move is whether Powell would get the same amount of first team football with Norwich as he would with Doncaster Rovers!

He's not going to get the game time he needs here with all of Carrick, Cleverley, Giggs, Anderson, Kagawa, Jones and Rooney ahead of him in the midfield department. He's got potential, he made that clear whilst at Crewe he just needs the experience and game time to fulfil thus loaning him out is the right move. We've got to be careful as to where he goes though, a season of bench warming isn't any good neither is a season of being selected without really having to work for a place. Personally think he should've been loaned back to Crewe last year but then a year of training with Scholes and Giggs could prove to be invaluable. Now I'm not too sure on Norwich as I think he'll spend a lot of time bench warming, personally would prefer to see him go back to Crewe or maybe even a spell with Wigan just please not to QPR!

I cannot see him getting too much game time at Norwich. Wigan would be a better fit especially if McCarthy moves on, or another team that will be at the top of the Championship.
