Midfielder could move out on loan for a month to gain first-team action as he returns from long-term injury

Mick McCarthy says he is looking to get Luke Hyam some first-team football on loan for a month if he has no reaction to his return to action.

The midfielder is playing for the U21s today in what is his first game back since sustaining a knee injury against Southampton last January that eventually resulted in surgery in the summer. 

“If Luke comes through the game at QPR today, he will probably go out on loan for a month next week,” the Town boss told the Club website. 

“He has been out for a long while and we have a lot of options in midfield with Skusey [Cole Skuse], Dougie [Jonathan Douglas], Giles Coke, Kevin Bru, Tabby [Jay Tabb]. Ainsley [Maitland-Niles] can play in there and we’ve got Teddy Bishop to come back in as well. 

“If Luke is in the squad and does all the travelling and training but is not getting games, that isn’t any good for him - or us. He needs to get some first-team football under his belt.”

The boss added that he will also talk to clubs who are interested in taking on loan the likes of his younger players including Josh Emmanuel and Myles Kenlock.     

The deadline for loan moves is 5pm, Thursday November 26.
