Loan Striker?

Loan Striker?

The signing of Andy Welsh on loans seems to be a strange one by Rob Kelly. Matty Fryatt seems to be taking longer then expected recovering from his and although some reports might list Welsh as a striker, he is mainly seen by City fans as a left winger.

According to the Official Leicester City website, Rob Kelly had been given the green light by the board to look for loan signings and a striking seemed to be the top priority. However, maybe Leicester don`t need to be looking at loan signings to fill the vacancy…step forward Mark De Vries

Although the player became a target for the boo boys last season, he could still do a job up front for Leicester. MDV is still out on loan to Den Haag and seems to have been cast adrift by Rob Kelly. MDV has struggled to make any of Kelly`s squads and it seems only a matter of when he goes rather then if he goes.

Although the big striker struggled at Leicester he did show in flashes what he could potentially offer Leicester. Games against Charlton and Spurs last year in the FA Cup showed that on his day MDV can be a handful for any defenders.

Last season MDV started 29 games for Leicester in the league and managed to score 7 goals. Although this isn`t necessarily anything to write home about, Leicester fans must remember that since Matty Fryatt has joined Leicester, he has started 27 games and scored…7 goals!

Supposedly Carl Asaba is currently training with the first team; this is a player who only managed to score 3 goals in 17 games for Millwall last season. Surely if Kelly is thinking of bringing in Asaba then he has to consider recalling MDV?

Although MDV might not be the way forward for Leicester, he is still currently a Leicester City player and if given the opportunity he might be able to put those poor performances behind him and give the Leicester fans something to cheer about.
