Kenny Set to Join Town
Saturday, 17th Jan 2015 22:21

Former Leeds, Sheffield United and Ireland keeper Paddy Kenny is set to join the Blues on loan from Bolton Wanderers, TWTD understands.

Earlier this evening manager Mick McCarthy confirmed that a deal had been agreed regarding a new keeper to come in as cover while Dean Gerken is out with a hip injury which is expected to sideline him for around a month.

Halifax-born Kenny, 36, started his career with Bradford Park Avenue, moving on to Bury and Whitby Town (loan) before he joined the Blades, initially on loan in 2002.

After eight years at Bramall Lane Kenny joined QPR and Leeds before joining Bolton, for whom he is yet to make an appearance, last summer.

In November the seven-times-capped Republic of Ireland international joined Oldham on loan, where he made four starts in a spell which ended earlier this month.

Meanwhile, we understand Balint Bajner’s switch to League One Notts County, which could be a permanent move rather than a loan, is set to be confirmed early next week.

Phil - how long will the loan be for? A month while Gerks is out I assume?

Hes only cover. Al Habsi would have been nice.

I thought he'd retired years ago

You fat b'stard! Can't believe this one, surely jon hallworth could do a better job?😉

Craig Forrest?

Paul Overton, come back...all is forgiven!

Where did Scott Loach go?

Cakeman added 22:50 - Jan 17
Kenny would be a good choice in my opinion. Very experienced and steady.
Not sure why the negative comments although I fully respect evryones opinions.

No! He was useless three years ago, and he can't have improved. What's wrong with letting Crowe sit on the bench?

manualthetisfanclub added 22:56 - Jan 17
Maybe Clive Baker,Ronnie Fearon not Kenny . Just goes to show however much stick a certain player gets as an opposition player,these players will sign for anyone! Talk about thick skin!

Loach on loan to Peterboro

Let's trust that Bart doesn't get injured.

itfc1981 added 23:06 - Jan 17
Great choice, as long as he never plays

Samassi100Abou added 23:18 - Jan 17
Popeye.... Yes because the former Leeds player we signed banged two in today, Kenny is a steady keeper you'd feel much more safe with him in the sticks then a youngster thats for sure

No Kenny, No Party!

Just cover while Gerken's unavailable, folks. Don't get your knickers in a twist. Chances are he's not gonna play - we can argue till the cows come home whether Crowe or Kenny should be on the bench but hopefully we won't need either.

Next time Paul Cooper is in town, someone give him a pair of boots!

Davesullivan65 added 23:51 - Jan 17
Sorry boys and girls,he has great experience,which we need superb news !

Len_Brennan added 23:54 - Jan 17
It's cover for a matter of weeks while Gerks is out, that's all. Who do you think we are going to be able get on that basis? Hopefully he won't have to play, but if Bart gets injured in a tight game at Norwich with 30 minutes to go, I don't see nerves or the occasion being an issue for him. He was a pretty decent keeper in his time & if fit should be able enough at 36.
Were we to stick with Crowe & his inexperience cost us promotion, there would be outrage on here that MM hadn't brought in an experienced keeper for such a key period of the season.

I like Paddy Kenny. Won't be fazed if thrown in, tons of experience, a bit bonkers.

Good choice.
