Lloyd Isgrove is 23-years-old – and is getting perilously close to the stage in which he can no longer be labelled as a player with ‘potential’.
He needs to start playing, and playing weekly – or he will simply stagnate.
He is yet to play a single minute in the Premier League for Southampton so far this season, and that speaks volumes of how little Puel rates the midfielder.
The young Welshman either needs to be sold or loaned, and considering that very few permanent deals will likely go through in January – a short-term loan move offers the best of both worlds.
If he impresses, Puel can use him next season – otherwise, he can be played in the shop window over the summer.
