Apparently he's walked out of his club in Turkey where he's on loan as wages unpaid.

I'd fly him back immediately if this is possible, should never have gone.

What are the ins and outs of this deal could we take him back? Even if not surely there's some sort of breach of contract?

I'd expect he would be able to come back and play for us as he's registered with us and they seem to have breached his loan terms. Would be interesting to know how this works contractually - presumably they are paying 100% of his wages ?

He might not be registered in this squad though, he is obviously a registered player but if we thought he wouldn't be coming back this season then a place in the registered squad might not have been his.

There is no registered squad in the Championship. I don't know the terms of the case or if it's feasible but if the loan deal has been breached and his full registration returns to us he would be available for selection. Very much doubt it will happen though.

Oh he probably doesn't and I don't give a toss about him personally like he doesn't give a toss about us. But we may be his only option of payment and some first team football and love him or hate him he may be very useful for us in the meantime. Or maybe not. Perhaps we have Obita and RIchards doing a fine job on the left.

It may be good to have him as an option as to me his pace is terrific and has terrorised teams enough times.

Or we can just continue wasting Ejaria on the left...

I'm not sure how you can say this. We've literally just played him in his "supposed" best position in CM for three or four games straight and he was terrible. Granted, he was poor on the left against WBA too, but he looks so much better playing as a LAM where there's more space to exploit, hence his through ball for Meite against Wednesday

He’s back with us in the summer when the club and player will both have discussions about what happens next season.

It’s possible things could change as the club has new management and he is certainly an option worth having available

As to his current situation, I believe he couldn’t just come back and start playing for Reading as the transfer window it’s now shut and although he is a Reading player he still would have to be signed back. Happy to be corrected if that is wrong though.

So we just have to wait until July to hear more though the chances are that Mo will leave or be loaned out again at that point

I get that school of thought, he was decent back then. Badly went off the boil since then though, looked very disinterested at times. Think a permanent move is best for both parties.

If you gave me a straight choice between keeping him or Aluko I would pick Barrow every single time.

Was he decent or was the rest of the squad just worse? Even when he was scoring, he disrupted the balance and the structure of the side, he sulked constantly, was extremely lazy etc etc...you only have to look at the number of clubs he's played for to suggest major attitude problems

He has been nothing short of wasted on the left. Still a good player, don't get me wrong. Just nowhere near his best (in my opinion of course - you may well be right, it's just how I see it obviously).

:shock: :shock: :shock: to use his through ball to Meite against Shef Wed as an example of left wing play though. He Literally could not be more central if he tried. That would be most peoples' number one example of why he's wasted on the left and needs to play through the middle!!!

The idea was that the LAM and RAM tuck inside, something Bowen alluded to in his post match conference so he wasn't playing as a natural winger

Meaning that Ejaria isn't stuck in the congested middle zone of the pitch but instead slightly drifted to the left where there's more space to use. I get the impression that when we play both Ejaria and Swift in CM, they end up getting in each other's way as they often look to take up similar positions

I hear what you're saying. H'es no winger yeah. I'm fine with some fancy formation where he's a central midfielder, whether he's slightly to the left or right doesn't bother me. But the idea of him being used on the left wing in a 4-4-2 formation is a total waste of his skills and that position.

The only players we have capable of being a left winger are probably Obita and Barrow. To say we're short on wingers is an understatement, which is why a bone marrow transplant seems a good idea at the mo (no pun intended) to me.

I think there is a big difference between a club trying to recall a player from a loan (which wouldn't be allowed) and a loan deal being broken by the other club. I'd be amazed if the rules didn't allow a player to revert back to their parent club in the case of a breach of the deal. He wouldn't be being transferred, simply the temporary deal would be null and void. The other variants would either mean he gets no money for 4 months or we end up paying for a player but not being allowed to use them despite neither us or the player being at fault.
