RYAN WATSON AND DOMINIC CALVERT-LEWIN RETURN TO PARENT CLUBS AT CONCLUSION OF LOAN SPELLS

5 January 2016

Both players return home as loan spells come to an end

Midfielder Ryan Watson and striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin have left Northampton Town and returned to Leicester City and Sheffield United respectively at the conclusion of their loan spells.

Watson signed on at Sixfields in August until the January transfer window, but has returned to the Foxes at the end of that period. Calvert-Lewin also signed on in August, and scored seven goals for Northampton Town during his loan spell.

"Both players have gone back,” confirmed boss Chris Wilder.

“It’s been a bit of a struggle for Ryan but I don’t want to dwell on it too much and we thank him for his efforts.

“He’s possibly found it difficult to reproduce the form of his first spell and he’s also found it hard to force his way into the team with the form of John-Joe O'Toole, Joel Byrom and Jason Taylor.

“Dominic has done great for us and I’m hoping that he has really enjoyed his time here and that he’s benefited from the experience.

“I’m sure he goes back to Sheffield United a better player but we move on. We are looking to improve the group and we are confident that we can do that."
