Albion loan out young striker again

Shamir Fenelon has joined Rochdale on loan

Shamir Fenelon has joined Rochdale on loan

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

Albion striker Shamir Fenelon has been loaned out to League One Rochdale for the rest of the season.

The Seagulls have strengthened their squad since Fenelon, 20, made his first team debut on the opening day of the season against Sheffield Wednesday and further senior appearances against Birmingham and Cheltenham.

Boss Sami Hyypia now has four strikers to choose from in new signings Adrian Colunga and Sam Baldock, together with Craig Mackail-Smith and Chris O'Grady.

Fenelon, Albion's top scorer in pre-season, is being loaned out again following temporary spells in Conference South with Tonbridge Angels and with League Two Torquay last season to broaden his education.

Hyypia said: "Shamir did very well in pre-season and that has been of great benefit to his development. Now it is important he continues that, and the experience of playing regular football in League One will help him to contine that progress."

Albion have signed 11 players this summer but Hyypia has not ruled out more transfer inactivity in or out of the Amex before the window closes on Monday night.

The Finnish manager said: "There are still a few days to go so who knows what's going to come? I am very pleased. I now have a very good problem. I need to leave some good players on the bench and some good players will be out of the squad as well.

"I have to be a bit selfish. We don't want to have players on loan and can't call them back and are then in trouble to achieve what we want to achieve but obviously now we have a situation that a few players maybe need games and they will probably go on loan."

All thing considered, with our abundance of choice up front, this is undoubtedly a good move for Shamir. If he can get some regular first team appearances in League One he should come back to us as a more complete player. Mind you, when he gets back we might just be a Premier League team! 😏

UTA!!

Spot on my friend.

I wonder if there will be any fireworks before the window closes....

Have a feeling that there may still be a twist in this tale.

I think one of the most interesting things in this article are the fact that Sami acknowledges some more will now go out on loan (something we couldn't have considered a couple of weeks back) and his thinly-veiled comments about more possible transfer activity. And when you then go on to consider possible loans from the PL surplus lists I reckon there's still more going on in Mr Burke's office.

Strength to strength, UTA!!

He played in the first match and nobody could understand why. Now the doubters (criticised by the Albion hardcore) are proven right.

Total rubbish as usual. He played early in the season because we had little alternative. Nobody said he was our new main striker. Now that we have lots of options he's going out to a League One team for more experience, not through any failing on his part. You do talk cr4p sometimes Sussexrim.
