Mark McNulty signs on loan

Im not a fan of them either but in McNultys case it might be wise. He is a risk.

Hes had two great seasons in League 1 but he's never made the transition to The English Championship successfuly with Sheffield Utd or Reading. £1m would be a hell of a cash to splash when we could end up with another James Collins.

The lad could score 30 goals from now to the end of the season and we wouldn't spend £1m. I'm guessing Reading are probably looking for about half that and probably out of our budget. My biggest problem with loans are we are developing other teams players. If he bangs them in for his loan period, there's every chance he gets picked up by someone else. We should be doing it the opposite way. More permanent signings with a few loans. I'd rather develop Shaw for the rest of the season, than take someone in on loan.

Done it with Agathe it's a road the club are prepared to go down , it will be another rebuild at the end of the season .

As it is will be with most clubs at our level.

Depends what you call our level. Aberdeen, Huns and Hearts, not so much. Killie and the likes, then yes. The top teams use loan deals, but for the most part, actually sign players permanently. I have nothing against taking the odd loan player, but the way we do our business is murder.

Just far too many for my liking and more to come probably.

That should put your gas at a peep, @SuperTortolano . I know you don't like it, nobody does, but you sound like a Brexiter the way you go on - i.e. railing pointlessly against reality. Hibs, along with EVERY Scottish club are in the loan strata of the food chain, whether we like it or not. It's largely the only way we can bring in the quality we all - you included - demand.

Sure, we could sign an unknown from Scottish League 1 and see how it works out, or just go with Shaw, but I guarantee you'd be bumping your gums about that, too. We need players who are going to have an immediate impact if we are to rescue top six. If that means loans, so be it - the summer is the time to hopefully get some pens to paper.

£3m? £4m? £5m worth of talent?

We just don't have that sort of money nor the £'000s a week they get in wages.

I'm not that fussy about loans but I don't know where we'd be without them.

A loan deal maybe.
Or ‘who blinks first’ on a transfer.
Reading must know that the value Dan Sarf and the value Oop Norf don’t bear comparison.
