McCarthy: Samuel Impressing and Could Be Looked at Longer Term
Thursday, 20th Apr 2017 15:18

Blues boss Mick McCarthy says on-loan Reading striker Dominic Samuel could come into his thinking when he looks to make longer-term additions to his squad in the summer.

“Possibly, of course,” McCarthy said. “He’s here on loan, he’s not had any game time, pretty much because he broke his toe.

“And then as he’s come back Didzy and Freddie have been doing all right, the front players who he would have to replace. That’s why he’s never played.”

But despite having made only three sub appearances the 23-year-old, who has a year left on his Royals contract, has caught McCarthy’s eye in training.

“He’s impressed everybody,” he added. “He’s certainly a good finisher and [he had] his little cameo appearance when he came on and helped up set up the goal against Birmingham.

“He has impressed, I’ve been really pleased with him, so there’s every chance that he’ll get his opportunity this weekend.”

Would be a great signing imo. Will def make the grade imo. Only saw him play for under 23s but showed the same sort of class as Spence. Class is obvious to see.

I like the look of this lad, I saw him briefly in the Brum game and he has that look about him that he can achieve something with us. Although Sears and Dids have done very well of late, neither imo are proper no.9's who will bag us 20 goal a seasons.

The trouble is in Samuel comes in and scores two or three goals, up goes the price Reading will want for him and bang goes his chance of signing for ITFC in the summer. Keep him on the bench I say and try to get the deal done in a low profile way if we think he is good enough.

Looking forward to see him play a full match.Lets hope he can produce the goods.

I wouldn't mind the club taking a punt on this lad. Would rather this than wasting our money on an older player past their prime.
