Although currently on loan at Coventry City, striker Andre Wright returned to parent club West Bromwich Albion on Monday evening to play for the Baggies Under-23’s.

Coach James Shan, quoted in the Express & Star newspaper, said Wright ‘looks a physical specimen that can handle men’s football.’

Wright’s appearance on Monday sparked initial speculation that his loan spell was being cut short but it appears playing in both the ‘EFL’ and Premier League 2 (for U-23 sides) is allowed.

That may benefit all of the parties concerned, especially if a player is not featuring for his loan club, but it reinforces the temporary nature of the deal and how the terms of the loan are stacked in favour of the parent club.

If Wright is not part of the Sky Blues squad then surely the answer while he is with the club is to be part of City’s own U-23 side (who were playing on the same day) and try to impress the coaching staff there.

One player who continues to try and do just that is George Thomas and the young Welshman scored against Millwall on Monday to continue to push his claims for a more regular shot at first-team football.
