, and Peter is delighted to have secured his signature.youth loan from Premiership side Crystal Palace until the end of the seasonThe 18-year-old has signed on a
Speaking to the club’s official website he said: “He’s an 18-year-old but if you see him and speak to him you will think he’s a lot older than that.
“I think he’s a very good centre half and probably a future captain wherever he is, hopefully for him still at Crystal Palace because I’m sure he will want to break in to their first team.
“He’s a leader; he’s a really good talker. He’s about 6’4, very good in the air and has been on loan at Luton and Cheltenham this year so I’m really pleased to have him.
“I wanted his type in the building because he’s a good talker, he’s a good organiser and I’ve spoken to the other three central defenders to say that he has come here to fight for a place.
“He is not guaranteed a place, it is up to any one of those four to get two places and show me which two should play.
“I’m sure Ryan will come here and do very well, he’s an old fashioned centre half but I think he will be very good news for us.
“We had him watched at Luton so we know about him and I think Luton were fighting desperately hard to keep him but he wants some experience in League One so it’s very good news for us and its filled another slot I was desperate to fill.
“I really appreciate the Chairman backing us on that because it’s another loan signing and a bit of wages but it has really helped the strength of our team now to have four centre halves – that’s what we need.
“We have 15 matches to go and we are looking in quite good shape now.
“He can play on Wednesday night no doubt about that, I want him to have a couple of days training with us and we will go from there. It will be a youth loan until the end of the season.”
As for players going out, Peter said nothing has been agreed but wouldn’t rule out someone leaving the club after receiving some phone calls in the past few days.
He said: “Nothing new but I’m getting a few little phone calls on certain things so it still wouldn’t surprise me if that does happen.
“You will get clubs that are either building for next year or nervous because of their situation so it wouldn’t surprise me if I get a phone call to say could we have a player on loan and I would admit, if players are not starting for us and we had an enquiry, then I would probably think about it for them.”
