John Guidetti hasn’t seen the light of day since he returned from his loan deal at Feyenoord in 2011/12, and with the recent additions of Stevan Jovetic and Alvaro Negredo at Manchester City, his career is in danger of stalling if he doesn’t start getting more first-team minutes.
Combine that with the obvious lack of firepower at Crystal Palace and Hull, and surely there’s a case for a loan offer being made?
From Manchester City’s perspective, loaning Guidetti out to another European league is only of a certain amount of value and if he’s to have a future in England, then he needs to start playing in England.
Hull have Yannick Sagbo and Danny Graham, Palace have Kevin Phillips, Dwight Gayle, and Marouane Chamakh – that’s just not enough firepower to stay in the league.
If you haven’t seen Guidetti before, YouTube has a very decent selection of compilation videos from his time in the Eredivisie, and not only will you notice the range of goals he’s capable of scoring, but he’s actually very well-suited to a more physical, English style of play.
If I was Steve Bruce or Ian Holloway, I’d have been on the phone to City already.
