Camara Linked With Owls Loan Move
Friday, 14th Jul 2023 13:55

Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly keen on a loan move for Blues midfielder Panutche Camara.

A week ago, Town manager Kieran McKenna revealed that the Guinea-Bissau international, who endured a frustrating, injury-hit 2022/23 following his £500,000 move from Plymouth, is set to leave the club on loan during the close season.

“Panutche, we spoke to in the summer,” he said. “We think as a football club it's going to be best for him to go on loan this season to get minutes having missed minutes last year. The first half of last season with injury but then in the second half of the season with other players coming in and doing really well.

“He's been training really well, is a top professional, is training really well but we have spoken to him earlier in the summer about going on loan this season, so he's in communication, we've had communication from some different clubs. That process is ongoing at the moment.”

Now, according to BBC Sheffield, the 26-year-old is interesting the Owls, who joined the Blues in the Championship via the play-offs.

Previous links with League One Portsmouth were dismissed by Pompey manager John Mousinho.

Assume he would not be allowed to play against us?

You assume correctly.

Could be a good move, he will be playing at the right level to develop and if he does well, then great he is still ours.

IF SW are really interested and believe they can offer regular football , then it clearly demonstrates others think well of PC's ability and potential !
It'll be fascinating to see what does happen ; but shall hope all goes much better for our player this season .

BlueNomad added 14:26 - Jul 14
Pathetic I know, but have to smile at the fact that they want one of our fringe players when at the beginning of the year their fans (on OwlsTalk at least) looked down on us as they were about to walk L1.

Nooooooooooo not them .

Hopefully with a January recall clause, just in case.

Linkboy13 added 15:29 - Jul 14
Cannot see him getting regular football at Sheffield Wednesday. If he was at that level of fitness McKenna surely would not of let him go. Would be pointless sitting on the bench there. League one or two club would be more beneficial where he's got more chance of game time.

Not sure why anyone thinks he wouldn't get game time at Wednesday.

bluesteal74 added 15:57 - Jul 14
I'd let him go there and if he does really really well bring him back in January.

WhoisJimmyJuan added 16:12 - Jul 14
I'm inclined to agree Linkboy.

PortmanTerrorist added 16:19 - Jul 14
Bit of a gamble as injuries aside, he might be the most complete midfielder at the Club.

blues1 added 16:21 - Jul 14
Linkboy13. Pretty sure he'd get game time there. And in fact, suspect we'd only let him go somewhere he would. Otherwise there's no point him going. Mckenna is letting him go bcse of the number of midfielders we have, shich wouldakexit unlikely he'd play as much here, as he probably would elsewhere. Personally tho, I wouldn't let him go there. Never a good idea to send a player to a team who are likely to rival us for position in the table.

Maybe let him go but with a recall in January if he is doing the business. At least we get to see how he performs at this level that way. Could be a good loan move, he will definitely get game time.

terry_butchers_twin added 16:44 - Jul 14
But is he up to Barry Bannan's standards…..😂😂

gosblue added 16:58 - Jul 14
I think there are five ahead of him at Ipswich. As per previous posters, this would be a good move for him to be playing at championship level with a January snatch back clause. If he's awesome or we get injuries we can bring him home or move him elsewhere if it's not working out.

Plenty of pre-season games ahead but it sounds like McK needs to see a run of games from him to be convinced for the future. He was one of the outstanding lg1 midfielders at Plymouth and it was an unlucky injury that deprived us of seeing that rather than bad play when fully fit. Still believe there's a class player there for us and he's ahead of a couple of our other mf's re the future. Trust them to make the right call and if he goes on loan, hope it's where he's playing every week rather than warming the bench.

some on here don't seem to realise how good Pan Camara is

SickParrot added 20:11 - Jul 14
At his best he would be a big asset, so I would like us to use the pre season friendlies to gauge his fitness, and see how influential he is, before any decision is made about a loan move. I get that he probably needs to play regularly to get back to his best and that he might start more games at Wednesday, but we would look very foolish if he was outstanding from the off there!

mrmorisato added 21:00 - Jul 14
I have mixed feelings about this.....He's now become injury prone and who knows how many games he'll be able to play and finish....on the other hand we're letting a quality player play at a rival with finances that will enable them to mount a promotion challenge this season.

McK is surely making a calculated gamble?!?

I would insert a re-call clause for sure!


ringwoodblue added 09:00 - Jul 15
Don’t understand this one. If we want him to have regular game time, surely a top L1 club would be better for him. Don’t like loaning our players out to rivals in the same league as us.

Jugsy added 15:10 - Jul 17
Controversial statement potentially, but I don't think he fits the dressing room. You could see he was a great football at Plymouth, but he was always mouthing off at the ref and coming across as he was hard done by. He's a player who strives to do well, but doing well for himself. In his interviews he talks about pushing myself and getting to the top - he doesn't talk about it in terms of getting to the top with his club. When you listen to Chappers, he talks about succeeding as a team. That's a strong dynamic and only certain players will plug. My feeling is Camara doesn't fit that and will likely be better off elsewhere.
