Remember him? The man that was going to solve England's left back problems, moved to Fulham & has since disappeared without trace. Seems Fulham are now prepared to loan him out, with a view to a permanent move. Now I like Granville, but he does seem to be lacking defensively. Wondered whether we should be taking a peek?

3 month loan sounds good to me.

Harley is a great player,I'd be well pleased to get him in for a few months:)

He's certainly a lot better than Brevett, that's for sure.

Jon Harley did nothing to impress in any of Fulham's home Inter toto games this season. He is caught out of position far too often, and has to make too many "crowd pleasing" challenges to save his arse - doesn't always get them right either.

His crossing was poor, and distribution also poor. I think Chelsea did good business by getting the fee they did for him. (was it about 3million?)

Still better than Rufus Brevett though :o

Not sure he'd bring much to Palace, although on a loan DG may feel the need to impress to keep his place.

Definitely one for the future and definitely better than Granville, go for him.

Is he Granville in disguise?

Would be very handy for us but dont think TF would want to sign another left back having got Granville (who I also think is a decent player) only a few months ago.

I agree, Granville will come good. I believe he is still abit under par, but his confidence is growing.

What?

Sounds good on a loan basis, to get a look at him first, would be good to get some competition on the left, give Granville a reason to fight for his place in the team!

I was going to start this thread, I'd think he'd be a brilliant loan signing. Bags of potential and a real hunger to impress.

To be honest, I've never been that impressed by Granville. Although you could say he's still 'settling' into the team.....1 or 3 month loan sounds good.

To buy him I expect we're looking at around 1.5-2m - plus apperances...Championship Manager experience coming into play

:o

Question is, would he drop a division ??

I personally think that Martin Grainger will be joining soon, so I doubt if we will need Harley!
