Carson Trained With Cobblers
Tuesday, 29th Jan 2013 10:42
Midfielder Josh Carson spent Friday and Saturday training with League Two Northampton, but we understand he is still to hear whether he impressed manager Aidy Boothroyd. The Cobblers are one of a number of clubs interested in taking the Northern Ireland international on loan.
Last week, Blues boss Mick McCarthy said Carson would benefit from a spell away from Portman Road: “A few would like to have Josh Carson on loan and that would be something I would be open to.
“I think he needs to go and play some football. He’s just a young lad learning his trade and travelling with us and training with us is not good enough for him, he needs to play. So that might happen.”
The 19-year-old, who played in central midfield for the U21s at Brighton last night, a role he regularly filled when in the academy, is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2014.
Another player who could move out on loan before the transfer window closes is right-back Jack Ainsley, who recently travelled to Preston to train with the League One side but was with the Lancastrians only very briefly as they instead added Leeds full-back Paul Connolly to their squad on loan.
We understand Ainsley was close to joining Capital One Cup finalists Bradford earlier in the season but the move was halted when the change of manager took place at Portman Road with new boss Mick McCarthy keen to look at all the players at his disposal.

Our Current Crop of Forwards by luke_38
Much has been discussed regarding the purchase of a new midfield maestro - but as well as that, we do lack strength in depth when it comes to our forwards.
Here's Where Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
In my previous effort I asked the question of Mick's plans for this season, and what they might do for Town's top flight aspirations.
Season Preview by tractordownsouth
Just like every season, we made our pre-season predictions last summer and just like every season we were wrong. Giants fell, minnows prospered and ten managers were axed, the pressure of returning their club to the financial utopia of the Premier League so great that the board of directors were ruthless and often reckless.
A Lack of Spending Will Curtail Progress by Nuggets
At a time when Fulham have just spent £11m on a striker with no Premiership experience, it's a little disconcerting to see Mick McCarthy announce that the club are relying on freebies and borrowed players once again this term.
Where Do Mick's Intentions Lay? by Mullet
The transfer window is barely open and the club isn't so much gently sucking in the fresh air of inevitable squad change, but blowing out the cobwebs with gusts of activity.
