Clough Looks To Keep Bannan
Nigel Clough has lavished praise upon Barry Bannan, who is on loan to us from Aston Villa, and expressed a desire to extend his loan deal that comes to an end on Monday.
"Barry's shown enough, either coming on or starting, and he's given us something a bit different.
"He can fill a number of positions. If Kris Commons wasn't fit, he could go and play off the front man or go wide left or wide right or even in the centre of midfield. So he's a good little player to have around.
"We will be getting in touch with Villa to see if we can extend the loan."
Clough was talking to the Evening Telegraph.
The 19-year-old has made quite an impact at Pride Park, and scored within minutes of his debut so if we can keep him here until the end of the season it would be great. Extending this loan would surely be beneficial to Aston Villa, Bannan himself and of course us? So it would seem strange if Aston Villa declined this offer.
