Loan exits suit McCarthy

07 February 2007 02:01
Wolves manager Mick McCarthy is set to allow Jemal Johnson and Rohan Ricketts to leave the club on loan, following a thinly-veiled attack on the pair's attitude. Both players have slipped down the pecking order recently, with striker Johnson having scored just once in his last 21 appearances, while midfielder Ricketts is out of contract at the end of the season. McCarthy told the Express & Star: "We've got five strikers, so if Jemal wants to go out on loan and we get an offer we will consider it. "He came in from reserve team football and made a good impact, but for whatever reason then not so much. "Rohan would be the same, he's out of contract at the end of the season and sometimes it's better to be out somewhere for a month playing a bit of football."
