I'm neither excited nor devastated by the news. It's a new option for the wings, we need that.
It's perhaps worth bearing in mind the state Gaston Ramirez's career was in before we brought him in on loan that time. I'm not sure it was quite as bad as Bolasie's is now but he was also sat around not doing much, hadn't done much for Southampton in a while or Hull when he was there... and came in to light up our team.
I'm not expecting that level of turnaround but then I don't think anybody was expecting that with Ramirez too. In both situations, I'm not expecting much at all. I do think there's enough of an unknown to it that it's worth at least giving the lad a chance before throwing him in the bin, though.
Saville has been shocking. Howson looks knackered. Wood is being bullied. Bettinelli continues to be turd and we miss Tav massively.
Oh, and Britt is a passenger.
I've said before, if we play 3 in Midfield Lewis Wing should be one of them. He isn't any worse than what we have in there and offers a goal and set piece threat.
