League Two Duo Remain Keen on El Mizouni
Friday, 17th Jun 2022 13:53

TWTD understands League Two Tranmere Rovers and Leyton Orient remain keen on signing Blues midfielder Idris El Mizouni on loan for 2022/23.

The 21-year-old made only seven starts and two sub appearances during 2021/22, scoring once, and is set to be sent out on loan this summer in order to gain more experience of senior football.

A month ago, TWTD reported that Tranmere and Orient are among the sides eyeing Paris-born El Mizouni and we understand they remain interested.

The Tunisia international is contracted to Town until the summer of 2024, with the club having an option for a further season, and has impressed manager Kieran McKenna since he came in in December with the Blues boss having said he is in his thoughts for the future.

In total, El Mizouni, who joined the Town academy at 16, has made 16 starts and nine sub appearances for the Blues, scoring two goals.

The midfielder has previously spent time on loan at Cambridge United and with former Blues boss Paul Hurst at Grimsby.

I like what I have seen of El Miz and there is probably a good player there so as he is now 21 he must make the most of this loan season to make a mark and claim a place in what will hopefully be a Championship squad in 23/24

Three or four years ago he was head and shoulders the best u18 midfielder we had. Last chance to push on and realise that potential.

Won’t get a game here because we need more and Humphreys is rated higher so it makes sense for the lad to get some games elsewhere

Loan move to Orient would be ideal to prove himself.

I'll probably get lambasted for this, but don't honestly see the point of a loan for him. Dont get me wrong, I think he's a decent player, but we need more than that from him. If he was gonna make it here, I believe he should have done so by now. So for me, we should be looking to get him off the wage bill altogether by selling him. A wage that while not by any means the biggest, im sure, would all help with us signing other players, with the limit on wages.

Yes i think you are right blues one. If we had signed him from another club say two seasons ago i think we would be unloading him. But coming from our academy they tend to get preferential treatment one of our own and all that bull . I think he's had more than enough time to stake a claim at first team level. If he can't perform at league one level he's not going to do it in the championship.

As most have said, last chance saloon for El Miz if he’s gonna make it with us. Needs to do well wherever he ends up on loan

Completely agree blues1.
Talented player for sure but with the direction the club is looking to go in I feel we need better.

RegencyBlue added 09:54 - Jun 18
To be brutally frank, if the club is going to realise its ambitions we need better than him.

It’s as simple as that!

Apparently, he is under contract until summer 2024 with the club having a one-year option.

We can only sell him if someone wants to buy him and I can’t see any sign of that.

If he goes out on loan then that means that someone else will be paying his wages for the loan period.

The squad looks a bit short of numbers. It would be nice to see a couple of signings shortly.

agree Ipswichbusiness, i too hope to see a couple of good signings soon , and certainly a decent striker, need to get the team bedded in and make a good start to season AND maintain that , we dont want to be playing lost cause catch up again this season, we didnt regain lost ground, and people were clutching at straws whilst mathematically possible.

blues1 added 15:23 - Jun 18
Ipswichbusiness. If he goes out on loan we will still likely be paying the major share of his wages. Especially if he goes a lower lge

Ipswichbusiness added 08:26 - Jun 19
Blues1 I suppose that the precise proportion depends on the negotiation, but playing someone to play for another club does not strike me as very attractive business.

Whatever happens will be a gamble and only hindsight will tell us if it payed off.
That's no use to us now but with his contract up in 2024, the club will do the best it thinks it can. Every club is in the same boat though.
Hopefully he'll turn out good with the right support, whether that's here or on loan will remain to be seen.
KM obviously sees potential in him so its over to him to show that. No amount of stats can know how that will go.
