Shaleum needed games, says Sven

As Shaleum Logan made the short loan move to Stockport County for a month on Friday, Sven-Goran Eriksson has explained his reasoning behind the move.

He told us: “We don’t have any injuries at the moment and we have 12 games to play.

“He’s gone out on loan and maybe next week some other of the young players might go out on loan too.

“It’s better for them that they go and have some good football. Playing games is good for them, good for us and hopefully good for the club where they go.”

This is a third loan switch this season for the 20-year-old and the move to the Hatters provided Logan with the chance to make his tenth Football League appearance for the season.

He made an immediate impact for Jim Gannon's side on Saturday, swinging in a free kick for Liam Dickinson to nod home as County took the lead in what became a 2-0 win over Accrington Stanley.

“He’s been doing very well and he is one of many young players that I believe in for the future. But as the situation is today, you don’t try people out in the last 12 games of the season, so it’s better that way," Sven adds.
