Southend United manager Paul Sturrock has hinted he could be about to sign Liverpool striker Jason Banton on loan with a decision made before the trek to Morecambe Saturday. Jason Banton: On his way to the Shrimpers on a loan deal?We should have known better than to doubt the Echo's legendary source, the Shrimpers are not only interested in taking a look in Liverpool youth striker Jason Banton, he's already been involved in training!And Blues boss Paul Sturrock likes what he's seen so far. Sturrock told "Jason has come in and he certainly looked lively in training on Tuesday. He came to us after a discussion with an agent he shares with some other players here and we obviously saw him when he played against us in the FA Youth Cup as well. He will be back in today and he plays in a position we're looking to strengthen so we will decide what we want to do and ahead of Saturday's game at Morecambe as well." As we wrote yesterday this fits in with adding to a depleted squad as cost effectively as possible and though Luggy hasn't had much luck with youthful loans so far hopefully left winger Jason will change his luck.Certainly anyone who has trained with Liverpool, Arsenal, er, Blackburn, must be worth a shout.The Banton saga
