“No, it’s not Robbie Gotts. It’s not Herbie Kane either. It’s only a loan at this present time but there is an obligation in there for us to take him on a permanent basis if we want to.

“It’s going to be a good signing for us. He’s similar to what we’ve got. I’ve made no secret that we need another number eight in there.”
