It's good news. Hodgsons reign was solid but unspectacular, where players with a bit of magic were discouraged from showing what they could do. Hopefully now with Ashworth and Clarke targeting players like El Ghanassy it means we are looking at fitting in more exciting players again.
I think all teams need to have somebody who has the potential to get fans out of their seats and who is a genuine entertainer and this sort of deal is also no risk as if he fails he just goes back.
I just hope we dont make the same mistake as Swansea and allow him to have a brilliant season before then being poached by a bigger club. It might not be possible, but I hope the loan to buy is in our favour and not in gents.
