McGavin Could Join Ndaba at Ayr United
Monday, 1st Feb 2021 13:38

TWTD understands Scottish Championship side Ayr United are keen to sign Blues midfielder Brett McGavin on loan for the rest of the season.

Town defender Corrie Ndaba has already joined the Honest Men this month and has impressed in his two appearances, while striker Aaron Drinan was on loan at Somerset Park this time last year.

McGavin, who is contracted to Town until the summer of 2022 with the club having an option for a further season, spent time on trial with Ayr along with the Irish frontman prior to his loan move but the Bury St Edmunds-based schemer returned to Suffolk.

However, we understand Ayr boss Mark Kerr, who nearly joined the Blues as a player in 2001, has renewed his interest and hopes to land the 21-year-old before tonight’s deadline.

McGavin hasn't featured for the Town first team since the 2-0 home defeat to Portsmouth in mid-December and with the likes of Flynn Downes, Teddy Bishop and Jon Nolan back from injury and Josh Harrop having been recruited on loan, seems unlikely to play much first-team football during the remaining months of the campaign.

Overall, McGavin, the son of former Colchester and Birmingham striker and one-time Town head of academy recruitment Steve, has made eight senior starts and one sub appearance for the Blues.

I rate him higher than Dozzell. At this stage though he needs to be playing and with our 85 central midfielders it will be hard for him to get game time this season.

Take the opportunity :PL not looking able to capitalise on talents brought through, lacking courage , presenting weak excuses for not blooding here at home , despite verbal ‘ promises ‘ , and leaving staff and supporters disillusioned .Go and enjoy your football !

Why don't we just take Ayr's management team?

McGavin, as well as a good passer of the ball, has a good physical presence for such a young player. I find it hard to see how he is still rated behind others in midfield. And I think he has serious potential especially in the holding role. Still, I am not sure that the manager rates him - despite the generally pretty unimpressive midfield performances from more senior players this season. So it may be good for him to go out on loan for now. Maybe he can return next season and claim a starting place. Hopefully in a team picked by a new manager.

Thought Mcgavin did well when he stepped in. Good luck to him, come back when Lamberts excuses run out
