Steve Bruce is set to make a phone call to the Emirates boss with his fingers crossed and a list of players he wishes to loan as Xmas presents!
Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce is set to boost his squad with loan signings from Arsenal.
The Daily Mail says Bruce can take his pick from Jay Simpson, Gavin Hoyte and Kieran Gibbs.
“I’ve cadged off him in the past,” admitted Bruce. “I nicked three off him at Birmingham. They were my best players and got me promoted. Maybe we could get Adebayor, Van Persie…” (tribalfootball.com)
Well there is no harm in trying I guess. Steve Bruce is a manager I never tire of observing. He is a very honest character who is less likely to bore you with cliché’s and predictable interview responses. Clearly Arsene likes him to and as outlined in this piece has helped the former Manchester United centre back in the past and letting the JJB outfit have a loan of these three players of course suits all parties. Jay Simpson looks like a fine young talent and Gavin Hoyte looks to have more potential than his older brother. Kieran Gibbs is an adaptable player who I am sure also has a bright future. Wenger really does have an embarrassment of riches coming through the ranks but one player who could be a useful loanee to give to Bruce could be Bendtner. Think about it, Heskey is apparently set to leave, so Arsene could loan out the Dane to him to replace Emile and then come the end of the season if Nicklas still looks like a donkey then he can flog him to Bruce for a few million!
