Within the last hour, Southampton have confirmed that Harrison Reed has headed out for a loan spell with Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

The 23-year-old midfielder heads out for the remainder of the 2018/19 campaign in search of greater game time and he’ll be hoping the spell proves as successful as last season’s stint with Norwich City where he made 43 appearances with a return of one goal for the Carrow Road outfit. 40 of those appearances were from the start of matches so he’s well adjusted to the Championship now.

The Ewood Park outfit have returned to the second tier this year following League One promotion last campaign.

Fingers crossed it’s another good loan spell for the Academy graduate as he continues his own development in the game, but it’s fair to say a number of fans simply don’t understand this decision from the club, believing he should be getting adequate game time with us.

Not a lot to add to that, he’ll gain far more from another solid tranch of 30 matches under his belt than he would five to ten appearances for us spread throughout the cups and substitute showings, so over to him to impress now and maybe force Mark Hughes into making a decision come January and enacting a recall of others don’t take their opportunities.
