Does anyone know whether he can be recalled from his loan?

I wouldn't want to put money on it, but I don't think he can. Normally longer-term loans (Gardner's was four months) tend to involve a loan fee, and if a loan fee is involved then there is no recall option.

It runs out on January 1st though, so if Westwood is badly hurt I assume we just wouldn't renew it.

He was proper rank at Brighton. Looked well out of his depth in the Championship.

Despite that, I reckon he's still probably better than Cleverley so I'd give him a chance in the FA Cup and see where it goes from there.

his deal won't be renewed. He's not progressing at all.

I'd give him another half season loan. His injuries warrant more time

But it's not looking good

Will not be retained at the end of the season. Free Transfer. He will end up at Coventry or somewhere like that.

He's contracted until the end of next season.

Why? I don't think he did well at Brighton did he?

I'm sure he's not better than Cleverley. I know there's always a tendency to look at scape goats, but Gardner is worse than all our first team midfielders.

Gardner was so very poor for Brighton, I saw a few games and he was ineffectual at best.

I remember thinking the same thing about Delph when he was coming back after two years of terrible injuries. I hope Gary makes the same kind of recovery that Fabian has.

David Beckham was shit at Preston. Gabby was shit at Sheffield Wed and Watford.. Loans don't always mean anything.
