Baggott Set For Bristol Rovers Loan
Thursday, 1st Feb 2024 16:50

Town centre-half Elkan Baggott is expected to join League One Bristol Rovers on loan before this evening’s 11pm deadline.

Baggott has just returned from the Asian Cup where he helped Indonesia to reach the round of 16.

Manager Kieran McKenna said on Friday that there would be discussions with the 21-year-old regarding a loan move.

“Elkan was an important member of the squad before he went away and there’ll be discussions, and there are discussions ongoing, with him that need to come to a decision by next week on whether he remains with us for the second half of the season or goes on loan,” he said.

Baggott has previously had spells on loan with Gillingham in League Two and Cheltenham in League One.

Meanwhile, Kieffer Moore's loan return to the Blues is still to be confirmed with Town waiting on AFC Bournemouth to complete their loan signing of Getafe striker Enes Űnal before they can confirm the Moore deal.

However, Welsh reports claim Cardiff City still haven't given up hope of bringing Moore back to Wales.

There could be one or two other outgoings before the window closes, loans of fringe or young players, but with nothing currently done.

Im a little disappointed by this, I'd hoped EB would have moved up the pecking order and would be more involved with the first team

Good move for Baggott, will gain valuable experience.
Will definitely be our first choice centre back,within the next couple of years.

Bazza8564 Hopefully, the loan will move him up the pecking order, but realistically moving up to the Prem would set all of our young players back and maybe mean they have to move on.

Makes sense for Baggott, Edmundson has filled in fantastically so when the others return from their duties there is some good competition in that area. Makes sense for Baggott to get game time elsewhere for now.

Good move for Elkan gives him invaluable experience if he gets the playing time, can see him being involved with our first team at some point.

Ideal for EB , who increasingly looks the part, to extend his experience and grow into a really mature footballer and physical presence ,being hopefully now tested week in week out !
Go for it young man , enjoy!

Great move , it must be a nightmare this january window , any other time of season we may have got gallagher but in hindsight clubs are fighting for promotion relegation if we get moore over the line job well done , i guess williams is coming bsck as we are not pursuing a defender , but unless your involved its madness to knock our attempts , but crazymoney asked , but thankfully not given

good for him to get some game time. Also might mean Ipswich content on YouTube isn't so flooded with Indonesian comments :-D

Great for both parties. He's going to get very limited opportunities here and isn't really learning anything. At 21 he needs to be getting as much football as possible. Hopefully he comes back all the better for the experience and can push for first team football next season.

I think the lad has seen sense and realised he won't improve his game by not playing. This is an ideal move for him Bristol Rovers are a very useful div one team it's so much easier to settle into a good team than a side that's struggling and lacking confidence.

shame that town will lose all that interest from Indonesian football fans, all 277 million of them..( 4th most populated nation in the world )
just imagine if only one eleventh of them purchased merchandise from Ipswich town.....Indonesia is one of the safest most amazing nations in the world ,you can visit a diverse nation ,dive and snorkel the coral reefs of komodo islands, visit active volcanoes or superb rain forests, engage with and enjoy Hindu or Islamic/christian cultures who are friendly and favorite country to visit.....i know i sound like a tourism advert but it really is a great cheap safe place to visit...
if baggot gets into a regular 1st team position in town he will attract an awful lot of interest from his nations peoples.....
