Baggott's Bristol Rovers Loan Confirmed
Thursday, 1st Feb 2024 18:43

Town have confirmed Elkan Baggott’s loan move to League One Bristol Rovers.

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

The 21-year-old says the move suits him having spoken to Rovers boss Matt Taylor.

“I've had a few chats with the manager,” he told the Pirates website. “The way that the team plays here, the environment, it's something that I think really suits me.

“The set-up is really good, so I think it gives me the best chance of performing at the highest level I can.”

Manager Kieran McKenna said last 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 King's Lynn in the National League, Gillingham in League Two and Cheltenham in League One.

Meanwhile, Cardiff City are reported to have agreed terms with AFC Bournemouth for Kieffer Moore, however, it’s still expected that the Wales international will join the Blues before this evening’s 11pm deadline.

He'll fit in well there. Looked like they wanted to play football when they came to FPR earlier in the season, his calm head and ability to carry the ball out from the back will suit tem perfectly.

Best of luck Elkan, but don't get too attached to Bristol, we'd like you back here and challenging for the first team.

Definitely one for the future for us. He needs to be playing regularly at his age and preferably in a team that plays out from the back. I hope that we keep hold of him with another loan a possibility for the first half of next season also. I am sure that his time will come for us if he keeps progressing.....
