"Hopefully he comes in and gives us something different. If he does, then it’s a win-win for everybody"
Paul Lambert hopes that Keanan Bennett will add something different to Town’s attacking options.
The 21-year-old joined Town earlier today on a season-long loan deal from German Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach.
“He was brought to our attention a few weeks ago, I think he’s gone under the radar because Gladbach are a Bundesliga club, a massive club," Paul told the Club website.
“It’s difficult to break in because of the way the club is. It’s a Champions League team.
“From the bits I’ve seen, I think he might give us something dynamic. He’s quick and left-footed which is great. I’m looking forward to seeing how he does.
“Hopefully he comes in and helps the same way Mark McGuinness has. Hopefully he comes in and gives us something different. If he does, then it’s a win-win for everybody.”
Keanan, who came through the youth setup at Tottenham Hotspur before making the move to Germany, operates predominantly as a wide forward or a striker.
“We felt in the wide areas we were a little bit short,” Paul continued.
“Young Jack [Lankester] coming back is a definite bonus but if I was to rely on Jack to play a lot of the games after the injury he had then I'd be foolish.
“Freddie [Sears], Gwion [Edwards] and Judgey [Alan Judge] are there but we definitely needed something different.”
