Man City boss Eriksson ready to use loan market

Manchester City boss Sven-Goran Eriksson plans to send more of young players on loan after the success of Ishmael Miller's spell at West Brom.

Miller has set the Championship alight this season scoring nine goals for the Baggies and joins fellow loanees Shaleum Logan (Scunthorpe) and Kasper Schmeichel (Cardiff) currently plying their trade in the Championship.

And, with the transfer loan deadline approaching on Thursday, Eriksson is looking to get more of his players out to get a taste of regular league action.

He told the club website: "Logan is on loan, we've got Kasper out, Ishmael Miller is scoring for West Brom and maybe before the deadline we might be able to give one or two more of the young players the chance to go out on loan.

"I think it's the right policy to have and to let them play football. The important thing is that we find the right clubs for them, first of all where they play football, good football and where they can play regularly.

"For some of them I think it would be very good if they go out on loan because I think it's better to play football in the league than in the reserve league."
