Hammer Potts goes out on loan



Impressive defensive midfielder Freddie Potts has joined EFL League One club Wycombe Wanderers on a season-long loan.

The 19-year-old has been excellent in pre-season during the Down Under tour and looked a possible for the first team squad.

But having also been part of the  squad which won the UEFA Europa Conference League in June, David Moyes has decided to send him to Matt Bloomfield’s Chairboys.

He was in Moyes’ matchday squad on eight occasions in the Conference League, including the final against ACF Fiorentina, and made substitute appearances in the group-stage victory at FCSB and round of 16 second-leg win over AEK Larnaca at London Stadium.

Potts could make his competitive debut for Wanderers in their League One season-opener at home to Exeter City on Saturday 5 August.

He joins goalkeepers Krisztián Hegyi, who has joined League One side Stevenage and Nathan Trott, who is spending a second season with Danish club Vejle BK in going out on loan to gain first-team playing experience.

    Nathan Trott on loan again and Freddie Potts now. There seems to be a pattern with Moyes regarding promising youngsters, he benches them for a few games, then loans them out year after year, then nothing. It feels like he is putting it off. I just hope they come back and he doesn’t tbh.
