Ryan is a player we have tracked since last Christmas. I have seen him play at least half a dozen times and he has impressed me.
He is an all round good midfield player. He gets about the park, he is strong in the tackle and he can pass the ball well. He wants to come and play senior football and that is a really refreshing attitude.
We have tried to bring him in before and I am really pleased we have been able to get the loan completed now. Thanks to Leicester City for allowing us to borrow Ryan, there is a good relationship between the clubs. They know we will look after him, he will help us and he will also gain valuable experience at the same time.
