Roberts Close to Joining Rowe at Lincoln
Wednesday, 23rd Jan 2019 14:49

TWTD understands Jordan Roberts is close to joining League Two leaders Lincoln City on loan for the remainder of the season. Last week, the Imps re-signed Danny Rowe for the rest of the campaign with the winger netting twice on his second full debut as they won 2-0 at Yeovil on Tuesday evening.

Roberts, 25, joined the Blues in the summer on a free transfer after leaving Crawley Town at the end of last season.

The winger or striker rarely featured under Paul Hurst but was used as a number nine by Paul Lambert after he took over.

However, with Collin Quaner and Will Keane having been added to the squad during January, Roberts seems unlikely to be used in that role.

Bradford City, Plymouth Argyle and the MK Dons had previously been linked but manager Lambert said last week that moves for Roberts had broken down.

“I think there were teams wanting him and then things broke down and were back on and then broke down again, so I don’t know quite where we’re at with it,” he said.

“I think probably Jordan’s agent is talking to clubs to see what’s going on but for some reason it seems to keep breaking down.”

In total, Roberts has made six starts and six sub appearances for the Blues without scoring.

Shows the state of the club when PL took over, and just how poor PH is at talent spoting for this level. Goes from playing as a number nine in the Championship to League Two.

So we are gradually shipping players out. I wonder if we still might see another player come in, in an effort to stay up! I’d personally go for another striker

I suppose with Pennington, chalobah, Keane, Guarner etc all going back at the end of the season, we will have a big dent in our squad and if the worst happens and we are in league 1, some of these players going out on loan could easily have to become our starting 11, cant see Collins or judge staying if we get relegated either
