El Mizouni Rejoins Cambridge United on Loan
Tuesday, 22nd Sep 2020 16:19
Blues midfielder Idris El Mizouni has rejoined Cambridge United on loan for the season, although with Town having an option to recall him in January.
The 19-year-old was previously with the League Two club at the end of last season, signing in January and making five starts and two sub appearances and scoring once before a medial ligament injury cut his spell short.
"I'm delighted to have done the deal, and hopefully I can help the team to keep winning games,” the Tunisian international told the Cambridge official website.
"I enjoyed my time here last season, I was playing a lot of matches and I knew I had the trust of the manager [Mark Bonner].
“Also knowing a lot of people at the club already, like the manager and most of the players, I feel like they believe in me and like me, so I'm very pleased to be back.
"I didn't stay that long last season before I had to leave, but everyone welcomed me in so that's good and will help me to settle in again.
"The players that have been brought in this summer, means there is a good attacking style of play here, and that's the way I like to play.
"Every time you go to a club you want it to end on a high, and with the injury last season I finished on a low. So it did feel like I had unfinished business at the club.”
Head coach Bonner added: "We are delighted to add Idris to the team and are hopeful that like many of the new signings, he can fit seamlessly into our style.
“Knowing many of the players and staff, and having spent a short but successful spell with us last year, this loan gives him an opportunity to pick up where he left off.
"We know he is tenacious and will add further creativity to our attacking options, and his arrival gives us greater competition throughout the midfield and attacking units.
“Idris's challenge now is to make the most of this opportunity, add value to our squad, and help us continue building towards the team we want to become.”
El Mizouni is set to make his second U’s debut Saturday's League Two fixture at home to Tranmere Rovers, his 20th birthday.
Blues boss Paul Lambert said just over a week ago that he’d like to get youngsters such as El Mizouni, Armando Dobra and Brett McGavin out on loan to get first-team games under their belts.

Climbing Up the Walls by Mullet
The world has undoubtedly changed and with it, until some indeterminate point, football has done too. Not only have we seen another club disappear as the fans of Macclesfield joined those of Bury in being locked out of the game, we might count ourselves lucky to only be locked out of Portman Road for our own good.
A Head in the Right Place by NormEmerges
A nice victory against Wigan, well played the Town, and you achieved it without what many consider our best player. For the second match in a row, Flynn Downes was left out because “his head wasn’t in the right place”.
Pyramid Strong by Mullet
On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
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.
