Lincoln City rekindles interest in summer loan goals – Swansea City prodigy was heavily linked
Lincoln City will look to rekindle interest in some of its summer loan targets in January, director of football Jez George said.
During the summer transfer window, Lincoln City managed to recruit 10 new players.
However, despite having a pretty solid window in terms of entries, they were unable to bolster their ranks with the signing of another striker. This left the Imps somewhat light on the options at the top of the field, with Tom Hopper and Dan N’Lundulu (on loan) the only natural attackers.
Now Lincoln has an eye on their plans for the next transfer window, where they will look to revisit any deals they just missed.
As cited by Lincolnshire Live, Jez George, the club’s director of football, has revealed that the Imps “would love” to sort out January’s offers for one or two players they narrowly missed this summer.
Here is what he had to say:
“There have been a loan or two that we have become very close with, that we would like to appeal to, in January, and we would like to do that very early in January.
“But it depends on the availability of the players and their situation in their clubs.
“Our job is to maintain a constant dialogue with the parent clubs of these players and to put ourselves in the best possible position. Ultimately, factors beyond our control will determine whether these players are available. “
A well-documented pursuit
One player Lincoln City couldn’t secure a late loan deal for was Swansea City forward Morgan Whittaker.
A temporary deal failed in the last stages of the window and the door has already been left open to the possibility of revisiting this interest in January.
George’s words only increase the chances that the Imps will sue Whittaker again in January, so it will be interesting to see if they are able to strike a deal for the up-and-coming forward this time around.
