There appear to be a lot of clubs after him, Wednesday linked too.

I'd look a bit higher than that, there's plenty of teams in the top half of the championship who are struggling for goal this year.

Reports linking him to Derby. Imagine the fume if he fired them to safety and relegated SHA in the process. :)

We should lend them Martinez & Coutinho, just to make sure...

Are we really that bothered? Sounds like the sort of thing they would suggest.

Derby would be a good gig for him, assuming they play him regularly.

Would we really loan him out after letting Davis go

Unless we are targeting another striker ;)

This kid needs to get some game time over this next run of games. Watkins and Ings are misfiring and I think Cam could thrive with that attacking line up behind him.

For a few games this could be inspired, as no other manager would know how to set-up against him.
It would also give Ollie & Ings a chance to reset and get fired up to get back in the first eleven.

I would tend to agree. I would just like to see him given 20 mins or so at the end.

Id like to see him go on loan to a championship side for the rest of the season with an option that we can call him back if needed. He must be doing quite well in training to make the bench but the way we should be playing Ings or Watkins up top would negate his inclusion for now. If however hes looking really strong in training as in better than the other two he should be in the squad at the expense of one of them.

Played really well for the U23s this evening. Scored a lovely goal. Let's hope he gets an opportunity with the first team soon.

We really don't know how good he could be with the limited minues he's had and now there's even more competition.
Maybe give Ings a rest as he looked lost against Man Utd.

Will put the crayons away after this, but I think a very smart bit of business would be to let Cam go on loan to Derby - assuming he's going to start in a fair percentage of their games -  and bringing in someone like Luis Suarez in for 6 months.  We get the ready made thing now, and (hopefully) for next season Cameron Archer will be properly challenging Danny Ings* for his place.


* or Watkins, I guess, but I'd suspect Watkins is the more likely to start of the two once Coutinho's up to speed.

I would hope any potential loan move to Derby is subject to who their manager is. Rooney is on the shortlist for the Everton job.

Rather than the bottom end of the Championship, I'd like to see him at the top of League One. Winning games, contributing to wins and potential silverware. For too long we've been in the doldrums and now we seem to be heading up the way, I'd rather have players with experience of what it takes to succeed rather than avoid failure.

I don't know, Derby might be a great idea.  It's a weird mix of pressure and freedom there at the moment - obviously there is the pressure to avoid relegation, but to be fair to Rooney the fact they have any chance at all of staying up is pretty remarkable. 

Form-wise they are one of the best teams in the division at the moment, and helping to keep them up would be an incredible experience.  I wouldn't imagine he would get loads of opportunities if he went to a side chasing promotion in the Championship or League One if they already have a settled side.  If he went to a mid-table team instead he will end up playing a load of dead-rubbers - it's good to play somewhere that every game will have something riding on it.  Plus it probably wouldn't do him any harm to learn from Rooney (assuming he is still there).

I'm not sure it makes that much of a difference, as long as they're getting game time. It would depend on the player I reckon, some would thrive on the challenge of a relegation dogfight, and some might think they'd made it if they were playing for a team walking the league. Or the exact reverse could be true. As long as they're playing though, I think all experience is valuable.
