Championship and League One Clubs Eyeing Humphreys
Monday, 8th Jul 2024 18:06

TWTD understands clubs in both the Championship and League One are interested in taking Blues midfielder Cameron Humphreys on loan.

Humphreys is one of a handful of young players at Portman Road who look set to go out on loan to gain first-team experience during 2024/25.

The 20-year-old seemed likely to get a loan switch in January but in the end stayed with the Blues as he was required as cover for Leif Davis in his secondary role at left-back.

Overall, he made only one start and two sub appearances in the Championship during 2023/24 having established himself in the first-team squad in League One during the previous campaign when he made 10 starts and came off the bench 11 times. He made regular cup appearances in both seasons.

With opportunities again likely to be limited in the season ahead, a year out on loan looks to be his next step with clubs at both Championship and League One levels having approached the Blues.

Centre-half Elkan Baggott is another who seems likely to have another spell out on loan.

The Indonesian international spent the second half of last season with Bristol Rovers and in April, manager Matt Taylor admitted he’d be interested in Baggott returning this season.

However, the Pirates will face competition from a number of other sides with Blackpool believed to be among them.

Keeper Cieran Slicker has said he sees his next step as a spell out on loan with a number of Scottish clubs interested in the Scotland U21 international, among them Partick Thistle, Ross County and Kilmarnock.

This would be a good move (and others). Get Humphreys, Baggott, Slicker and Ali out on loan to at least a Championship club (or maybe Scottish Prem). Can see all 4 being a part of the team next season

Needs to go and get regular first team football. Could still have a big future with Town.

Really like Humphreys technically very good and one of the best passers of the ball at the club. I think his main problem is that he's a quiet lad and needs to impose himself more during game time. Going out on loan and playing regularly will bring out the confidence in him. I think this season is a make or break one for Baggott his progress was halted when he refused to go out on loan and by not playing you do not get better and this was high lighted in his first few games for Bristol Rovers when he really struggled but finished the season very well he also lost his regular spot in the Indonesian team.

Humphreys to go to a League One club would be ideal when he can go straight into a team and start playing. He looks a class above that division with some regular games.

Humphrey's a great talent and would develop at a Championship Club (he's frankly too good for L1).
