Yennaris Hints At A Loan Move

by on January 5, 2012

Versatile Nico Yennaris has told the Arsenal website that he could go out on loan this month to continue his football education. The England U-19’s midfielder made his debut for Arsène Wenger’s first team this season against Bolton in the Carling Cup earlier this season. Yennaris said he nearly went out on loan in November, being a regular for Neil Banfield’s side this season. The versatile midfielder can operate as a center midfielder, playing as a holding midfielder and at right-back.

Yennaris spoke about his first-team debut earlier this season, expectations for the rest of the season and going out on move.

“It was unbelievable to have the chance to play [in that game], I was pleased with my performance, I thought I did well at right back.”

“Obviously I’d like to push on with the first team in 2012, and if I can’t because I’m not ready, then hopefully I will go out on loan and get some game experience.”

“I was nearly going out on loan before the window closed in November, and the boss [Arsène Wenger] spoke to me and said I need to start playing a man’s game and get experience”

“Working on the weaker aspects of my game will help me, but playing and experiencing men’s football and the level you have to step up to will be a big help”

“I’m sure going on loan will help me in the long run.”

The Reserve midfielder also spoke about seeing his team-mates like Ignasi Miquel and Emmanuel Frimpong being used in the first-team this season.

“It’s good to see them play because we know that the manager will give us a chance [too].”

“We have seen Frimpong do it, we have seen Iggy do it, so why not me?”

“A lot of young players seem to get a chance at Arsenal.”

“Whether they make it here or carry on their career somewhere else, they have been given a chance.”

“That is good for a young player to see.”
