El Mizouni Joins Cambridge on Loan
Thursday, 23rd Jan 2020 16:22
Midfielder Idris El Mizouni has joined League Two Cambridge United on loan for the rest of the season.
The Paris-born Tunisia international has made six starts and six sub appearances for the Blues, having made his senior debut towards the end of last season.
The 19-year-old is contracted to the Blues until the summer of 2021 with the club having an option for a further year.
Cambridge's head coach Colin Calderwood is delighted to have recruited El Mizouni, who faced his side in a 0-0 pre-season draw in July.
"When we found out about the possibility of a loan for him, we moved swiftly," he told the U's official site.
"Had he have been out there for another day or so, numerous other clubs would have jumped in.
"He’ll add to our attacking threat - he has an athleticism to go with his footballing ability."
Town are keen to get their young fringe players out on loan to gain first-team experience. Last week, striker Aaron Drinan joined Scottish Championship Ayr United, while fellow frontman Kai Brown moved to BetVictor Isthmian League side East Thurrock United.

We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
