Garvan Rejects Loan Switch

Owen Garvan

Colchester United boss Aidy Boothroyd has revealed that Owen Garvan has rejected a loan move to the League One outfit in order to fight for his place at Ipswich Town.

The midfielder has been out-of-favour at Portman Road and Tractor Boys chief Roy Keane accepted Colchester’s loan bid.

But the Republic of Ireland Under-21 captain has turned down the move in a bid to force his way back in to Keane’s plans.

Speaking to the Evening Star, Boothroyd said:

“It’s fair to say I did enquire about Owen and Ipswich were prepared to let him go out on loan.”

“He elected to stay and fight for his place and that’s fine. I’ve not got an issue with that. Players have to make decisions and if I had a pound for every player that didn’t sign for me at Watford I’d have probably bought this Club rather than be Manager of it!”

He added:

“That ship (regarding Garvan) has now sailed, I’m not bothered about it and we’ll move on.”
