Sam Keen On Owls
Charlton Athletic winger Lloyd Sam has revealed he is keen to extend his loan stay at Hillsborough by insisting he has more to offer boss Paul Sturrock.
The 21-year-old will play his last match in his current one-month deal in Wednesday's clash with Derby County at Hillsborough on Saturday. But Sam insists Owls fans have not seen the best of him.
He told the Sheffield Star: 'It's been all right here, but I know I can still offer more, football-wise. In the last game, I felt better for the whole game than I had felt in any of the other matches.
'I have enjoyed it so far. I wouldn't rule out extending my stay. I'll speak to both managers, to see what they're saying, before or after the game, I'm not sure.'
The winger has yet to feature in an Owls win since arriving at the club last month. After making his debut in the defeat to Leeds, Sam has seen the Owls draw at Southend and at home to Stoke before losing at Hull last Friday.
And boss Paul Sturrock also revealed he is keen to keep Sam for up to the allowed 2-month extension, despite a number of injured players returning to action.
He told the official SWFC site: 'I like Lloyd, I think he's got real potential and I think that perhaps that potential has been stifled because of a lack of competitive games. But I think if he was a long-term player at this football club we'd have a very exciting player on our hands. But that's to be debated.
'I've got to chat to the chairman and the board, and I've got to chat to Lloyd to see how he feels about things, and I've obviously got to talk to Charlton to see what they think. I'll do that later this afternoon or tomorrow.'
It's likely the winger will learn of his future with the club immediately after the match with Derby County on Saturday.
