Town Closing in On Coulson Loan
Wednesday, 21st Jul 2021 12:45
TWTD understands Town are closing in on the loan signing of Middlesbrough left-back Hayden Coulson.
It was reported yesterday that the Blues had won the race for the 23-year-old and we understand the season-long switch should be confirmed in the next few days. Sunderland and Championship Luton had also been linked.
Gateshead-born Coulson came through the ranks at Boro before spending time out on loan at St Mirren and Cambridge United, both in 2018/19.
Coulson, who also plays wide on the left of midfield, broke into the Teessiders’ first team at the start of 2019/20 and has now gone on to make 28 starts and 21 sub appearances, scoring once.
He is contracted to Boro until 2023, however, with his involvement having been limited last season his departure is little surprise.
Town have already signed one left-back this summer, Matt Penney, who joined after leaving Sheffield Wednesday, but with Stephen Ward having been released at the end of the season and Myles Kenlock among those told he can move on this summer and currently training with the U23s, the addition of a second left-sided full-back has looked on the cards.

Proper handy loan signing. Get in

I think a loan is the right choice here, Penney is permanent and needs competition if he wants to make the position his. If Coulsen doesn’t play and gets annoyed he just goes.

Good signing, left sided MF and cover @ FB, whats not to love about this one !
|markchips added 12:55 - Jul 21|
Expect he will play left wing and as cover for Fraser. and Penney. Good use of resources.

Good player by all accounts although I would rather it wasn’t a loan.
PS has Neil Warnock got a spare centre-half?

from the name, the look and the shirt, I thought he was danish...

Shame it's only a Loan, good little player, would love to see us sign him long term if we go up
|RegencyBlue added 13:33 - Jul 21|
Hopefully with an option to buy.

Quite a few boro fans are confused as to why they are letting him go, which is only a good thing! Another good signing and another team who are gutted to see a player we are signing go. COYB

I'm guessing we'd rather have signed him permanently but Boro are hedging their bets. If he fulfils his potential with us, his price will go up - although we still might be able to buy him if we make it to the Championship. Nice tackle, by the way! -:)

A really good signing. I wouldn’t get too fixated about it only being a loan. For next season he is an Ipswich Town player. We will need plenty of new faces to compete and be successful in the Championship next season if, as we all hope, we go up this year anyway.

Isn’t it lovely actually beating teams, often in higher divisions to the player signature!
|BlueBlood90 added 13:44 - Jul 21|
I've never seen him play but I like his description as being speedy and versatile down the left hand side. Would've preferred him to join permanently but if he's the best player we can sign in that position then bring him in by any means possible. I'm desperate to see us sign a couple of centre backs now.

This is great business.
Are we still looking for a keeper?
|Cadiar added 13:57 - Jul 21|
Sign him up now purely on the strength of the picture & how he treats budgies
|1psw1ch added 14:07 - Jul 21|
excellent signing,,,, so refreshing to see proper talent joining this club,,, coyb
|chepstowblue added 14:09 - Jul 21|
I hate the word 'loan' almost as much as 'assist' or 'possession'. But if he's that important then it's better than nothing. It doesn't alter the fact that if we don't get 2 centre half's, one of which must be an experienced leader, i regret that we're going nowhere again this season. It beggars belief that it's not been addressed as yet. An injury to either of the untrustworthy Woolfenden or Nsiala leaves us with a problem.

Good addition, this is a loan I don't mind. Young player with Championship experience, gives us a chance to look properly at him and hopefully turn it permanent if we go up (or even if we don't). My understanding is loans do not count towards the wage cap either so win win
|Dissboyitfc added 14:35 - Jul 21|
Not a massive fan of too many loans, but in some ways it could work to our advantage, FFP dictates what can be allocated towards the players wage bill, if the parent club continues to pay some of the players wage, its win win 👍

Not bad if this goes through. I live up here in the north-east and a lot of my my Smoggie friends like his pace and ability to cross the ball. They also don't see him as a left back and say he should be playing more up the field. They are also concerned that he may stay with us and not return to Teesside...#COYB

We've had some very good signings.
Now a Centre Back please!
|runaround added 15:54 - Jul 21|
A loan is worth it if you can get a player of better ability than you can afford permanently. Hadn’t heard much of Coulson before the interest by Warnock clearly rates him & he can cover 2 positions we are short in so hopefully we get it over the line
