Gedson Fernandes

I think Gedson will get some minutes but not in any important games. He's nowhere near the bench let alone the starting XI. Although if there were some injuries it'd be useful to have the depth .
Clearly we aren't going to buy him permanently unless Benfica MASSIVELY reduce their asking price. Its not worked out for him and I always thought it was a bit of a pointless signing (although I suppose he was just bought to cover Sissoko's injury)

He's not registered in the PL squad, IIRC ?

I assume he's also not registered in the EL squad ?
So that only leaves the domestic cups that he can play in.
 
I remember this site getting themselves in a tizz because it wasn't a stright up loan-to-buy

THIS is exactly why we don't want to be stuck in these deals where a player turns out to be average but we have to pay sillymillions for them anyway.

Shame it hasn't worked out for him.

If he does leave in January - good luck in wherever he plays next.

I think we would all wish him well. He has stayed a pro. You can see there is talent in there, the question is whether he has it in him to succeed at the highest level, but good luck to him.
