April 3, 2016

It was a weekend of free-kicks from the Eredivisie as club football returned from the latest international break. Marco van Ginkel and Lewis Baker each scored a dead-ball effort to kick off the latest edition of the Loan Report. Headliners Van Ginkel has found his return to Dutch football far more favourable than his stay at Stoke, featuring regularly, earning Champions League recognition, and weighing in with the sort of…

Two of Chelsea’s best and brightest youngsters caught the eye this past week in the land of the Loan Report as Andreas Christensen scored his third goal in Borussia Mönchengladbach colours whilst Dominic Solanke marked his return to action with a brace off the bench for Vitesse and Juan Cuadrado showed everyone what he’s capable of on the big European stage.

The first goal in this week’s Loan Report belongs to Marko Marin, although it may end up being taken away from him upon further review. The second belongs to Jeremie Boga who is back in the good books at Rennes after a few recent struggles. We begin in Turkey… Headliners Marin is often the butt of many jokes and is typically held up as the poster boy for the less-successful…

March 6, 2016

We didn’t have quite as many goals this week but the one we can bring you belongs to Izzy Brown, and it was his first in senior professional football.

Three more goals take us closer to the milestone of fifty for the Chelsea loanee season to date, with two amongst them notching for the first time this campaign and one marking his maiden strike in professional football.

The Loan Report exploded into life this weekend with five goals and plenty of sparkling performances to round up for you. Let’s get straight to it. Headliners Andreas Christensen has earned rave reviews so far for his composed, seasoned displays at the heart of the Borussia Mönchengladbach defence since joining on a two-year loan last summer. Goalscoring has however rarely been his forte, with just five goals in his three…
