Nathan Baxter has admitted his delight after joining Accrington Stanley on loan from Chelsea
Baxter had made the bench for the club last month in our Carabao Cup third round match against Barnsley, but was pushed down to fourth-choice with the arrival of Édouard Mendy, and was then forced to make the decision that he needs to move out the club on-loan.
And after Accrington completed the loan deal, he has opened up and announced just how delighted he is to get the deal done, he told the clubs official website after he officially made the transfer move: “It’s taken a while to do because of the circumstances at Chelsea but I’ve got to thank the manager for holding on for me and waiting, it’s a club that ticks all the boxes for me and I’m delighted to be here.”
And it sounds like Baxter will be expected to be the starter, and has even copped the No.1 shirt at the club, where he will be coached by former Millwall and Fulham goalkeeper Tony Warner, manager John Coleman said: “It’s been going all summer and we’ve resisted the temptation to take others because we thought that this one could drop and it has, so we’re delighted to get him.
“It’s now a big test for him, he’s had a couple of loan spells in the past but this is probably going to be the highest level he’s played at in England.
“I know they’ve got high hopes for him at Chelsea but having seen him play I’ve got high hopes for him, and everyone I’ve spoke to who’s managed him has come back with glowing reports.”
The lad is very talented and needs game time, so this is a very good move for the man to make and one that needed to happen.
