In our Loan Watch feature, the Transfer Tavern takes a look at how a selection of players from a particular club are doing whilst they are away from their home and provide a brief update regarding their progress.
Jak Alnwick joined Blackpool on loan earlier in the summer, having spent the previous campaign with a temporary spell at Scunthorpe United.
Valued at £225k by Transfermarkt, the shot-stopper has started life in reasonable fashion for the Tangerines, having kept two clean sheets in the seven appearances so far.
However, he had a weekend of action that he will want to put behind him rather quickly, as he saw his side lose 3-2 to Coventry City after leading the game 2-1. Those three conceded goals took his tally to eight for the campaign.
Hastie found himself on the move at the beginning of the month and appears to have hit the ground running at Rotherham United.
Making his debut against Doncaster Rovers in a Yorkshire derby, the young winger found the back of the net with a free-kick that appeared to evade everyone in the first half, however it was not enough for the club to take any of the points as they lost to a late winner.
Having been relegated to League One last season, Rotherham will be hoping Hastie can help them make a swift return to the Championship at the first time of asking.
Ross McCrorie may have been on international duty for Scotland’s Under-21 side this week, however he appears to have had an encouraging start to life on the south coast at Portsmouth.
Despite being sent off in his debut for the Fratton Park outfit, the defensive midfielder has been heavily involved in Kenny Jackett’s side as he has made five appearances across all competitions to date (Transfermarkt).
McCrorie recently revealed he needed to leave Rangers this summer in order to play regular first-team football (The Scottish Sun) and has impressed those at the League One outfit with the versatility he has to offer (Portsmouth News).
