Dover loan for De­bayo

Western Daily Press - - Football -

CHEL­TENHAM left-back Joshua De­bayo has joined Na­tional League club Dover Ath­letic un­til Jan­uary.

The 21-year-old ex-Le­ices­ter City player be­comes the fifth mem­ber of boss Michael Duff ’s squad to be loaned out.

“Joshua needs games and Dover will be a good move for him,” Duff said. “Dover’s man­ager Andy Hessen­thaler is an­other one I know and I’m sure Joshua will ben­e­fit from the ex­pe­ri­ence of play­ing for him.”

De­bayo, who signed a two-year con­tract with the Robins in the sum­mer, played in five of the open­ing six matches, but with Chris Hussey re­turn­ing from a groin in­jury and Brent­ford loa­nee Tom Field also in con­tention for the berth, De­bayo has not fea­tured since the Carabao Cup de­feat by Brent­ford on Au­gust 28.

He went on as a sub­sti­tute in Tues­day night’s 6-0 County Cup first round win over Man­gots­field.

Chel­tenham now have five play­ers out on loan, with the other four be­ing: Matt Bower (We­ston), Tom Smith (Bath), Manny Duku (Bar­net) and Ge­orge Lloyd (Here­ford).
