Brentford winger Alan Judge may leave the club on loan before the end of the transfer window, according to Get West London.
The Republic of Ireland international is apparently frustrated at his lack of first-team action with the Bees and is seeking a loan move away for him to gain some more playing time.
Judge has been affected by injury over the past year or so. He suffered a double leg fracture in April 2016 in a fixture against Ipswich Town. He made his return to training in November and has played for Brentford’s B team but has struggled to get back into their first-team.
The 29 year-old was in fine form before his injury. He scored 14 league goals for the Bees in the 2015/16 season and was named in the PFA Championship Team of the Year.
He is a very talented player when he is fit and he will no doubt be a target for many clubs, potentially in the Championship and in League One, if he is made available for loan.
He is very experienced in the Football League and has played over 250 games in his career. He has previously played for Blackburn Rovers, Plymouth Argyle and Notts County before he signed for Brentford in 2013.
Judge just needs to get back into playing regular football and a loan move would be a great opportunity for him to get playing again. There is no doubt that he will still be in Brentford’s future plans but their loss will be someone else’s gain in this window.
