Grant returns to Doncaster

Monday 2 January 2017  3 Comments  [Jump to last]
Under-23s midfielder Conor Grant has rejoined Doncaster Rovers on loan and will stay until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old spent an extended spell with the Yorkshire club last season, making 19 appearances and has been sought out again for another temporary move. This follows an earlier season-long loan at Ipswich Town since last August, where Grant made 7 appearances; however, that was cut short by mutual agreement in November, and Grant turned out for Everton U23s in four games before Christmas.

Really hope Grant does well here after being unlucky at Ipswich.

One to keep an eye on.

Liverpool's record signing Andy Caroll has told reporters that Grant has been totally mistreated by Everton and should have been loaned to Real Madrid. Steven Gerrard agreed and said "Earrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr"

Did okay at Doncaster last season in a side that was relegated from League 1. Joined Ipswich on a six-month loan this season but struggled to make their starting 11 and by November was back at Finch Farm. Now back with Doncaster at League 2 which is possibly about his level.

Shame really as I remember that back-heeled finish he did about 3 seasons ago in pre-season training in Austria on Everton TV and thought we had a player there.

Just to think there are 5 players who started at the academy never got a look in of the first team and are currently playing at League 1:

Jon Nolan – Chesterfield
Hallam Hope – Bury
Aristote Nsiala – Shrewsbury
John Lundstram – Oxford United
Ryan Ledson – Oxford United
