Being recalled from his Swindon loan by Arsenal with a view to another loan move.

Good Energy and a creative influence going forward, was good for Swindon at BR earlier in the season, plus with Ballard being here we’ve got previous with Arsenals kids......

I wonder if we might have asked??

Could be just what's needed.

I believe Northampton have a tricky pair in midfield, not sure of the names. Something like Dave Ross and Si Berman. Both got their sights on bigger things and like to dominate.

Their local paper says he's a contender for their player of the year, so he definitely must have ability.
Seems a very strange move by Swindon to get rid of one of their stand out performers because they need to strengthen another part of the team.

Swindon didn’t get rid. Arsenal want him somewhere (presumably) better. You’d think that means a league up, but who knows?

Their assistant manager says differently.

Wright said: “I’m not sure at the moment where his future lies, but I think we are in talks with Arsenal about his future. There’s no definite decision yet though.

“It would be a footballing decision if it does happen. It’s to do with the loans really. We probably need more players in different areas than midfield.


“Matt’s been terrific here, and I’ll be sad to see him go if he does go. If he goes, I think he’ll be a loss, but sometimes you have to do that.

“It’s possible we will be looking to bring in another loanee at Matt’s expense. But we will be looking to bring someone in on a permanent deal if anything crops up as well.

“We’re trying to improve to the squad and add to it because with the position we’re in, we need help.”

I don't know anything about this lad but if Arsenal are recalling him to place elsewhere maybe either a Championship club have enquired or he is going on a permanent somewhere.
Arsenal are apparently looking to unload some of their playing staff.
