CITY striker Reece Webb-Foster will be going out on loan again.

Stuart McCall this afternoon confirmed that the youngster has been the subject of local non-league interest and a deal should be sorted soon.

Webb-Foster, who played the full game for the reserves yesterday, has been pushed further down the pecking order by the arrival of Marc McNulty.

And McCall feels he needs to be playing regularly - as he did with a loan spell at Park Avenue towards the end of last season.

McCall said: We’ve had a bit of interest already in Reece, and understandably so, and it will benefit his development to go out and play.

"He hasn’t had a lot of football and with us bringing in another striker now, it would be difficult.

"He'll get the best of both worlds because he can play games but also still train and learn his trade with us during the week.

"A few local clubs have made enquiries and I think that will get resolved in the next day or so."

Loans to non-league clubs are still permitted despite the abolition of the emergency system this season.

Meanwhile, James Hanson and Tony McMahon both trained this morning - and the targetman could have an outside chance of being in the squad at Gillingham on Saturday.

Rory McArdle came through another training session and is likely to be involved for the reserves next week.

Calf victim Nathan Clarke remains the only squad member currently unable to take part but he hopes to be able to re-join the rest on Monday.
