So he could be on his way out, but the question is, how long should he be gone for.
With the goalkeeper position undergoing some pretty big changes over the recent days, and with more possibly on the way, then it’s certainly something that the club and the player need to be asking themselves.
According to a report from Alan Nixon at The Sun, Bolton Wanderers are interested in bringing in Sheffield United goalkeeper Jake Eastwood, with the journalist claiming that it will possibly be a season-long loan.
There is some confusion when it comes to this story, he did initially have a contract that expired at the end of this campaign, however his name didn’t appear on the Premier League released list a few weeks ago, which might indicate that he could be sticking around after all and we just don’t know about it yet, so as in most transfer stories, believe who or what you want to believe.
But back to the issue at hand, I think that a loan is probably not going to be enough for Eastwood, and the club really need to consider cutting ties with him as soon as possible.
What will the result be tonight?
With the signing of Wes Foderingham taking care of the backup role, and the club looking to bring in a young established number one for the future, whether that be Uğurcan Cakir or Dean Henderson, the door to the goalkeeping room at Bramall Lane is pretty much shut right now, and it’s not going to be open again for a while.
And whilst Bolton Wanderers probably aren’t likely to be able to afford to buy him right now, we should perhaps look to make it a loan ‘with an option to buy’ at the end of it, then hopefully we can get some money out of the deal down the road.
What about you? What do you make of this news about Eastwood?
