BANTON’S WAIT FOR A HOME IS OVER
JASON BANTON’S list of former clubs reads like an A-to-Z book, but Gareth Ainsworth is hoping that he’s finally found a place to call home at Adams Park.
The winger, still only 22, made a habit of swapping clubs during his academy days – starting at Arsenal but bouncing between Tottenham, West Ham, Blackburn, the Gunners again, Liverpool and then Leicester before even making a firstteam appearance.
Banton also had a failed stint at Seattle Sounders three years ago, but it seemed his wandering days were over after linking up permanently with Plymouth Argyle in 2014.
However, he decided to call it quits at Home Park after just 18 months with the Pilgrims – and Ainsworth is determined not to let his mercurial forward get itchy feet at Wycombe.
“Jason Banton wants to get in and get involved,” said Ainsworth. “He’s a fantastic talent. He’s had people telling him that he’s going to make it at big clubs and it hasn’t quite worked for him.
“I want Wycombe to be a home for Jason. I want him to really enjoy it here. When he’s settled I think he will be a fantastic player here.
“He’s always been that maverick forward player, but he’s learning fast and I love working with Jason.”
