Carlisle keen to keep Troy
6:00am Friday 20th September 2013 in Sport
CARLISLE are keen on extending Troy Archibald-Henville’s loan stay at Brunton Park.
The defender has played three games for the Cumbrians since his move to the north west on August 30, during which United have conceded just once.
Now caretaker manager Graham Kavanagh has made initial moves to tie the centre-back to a longer stint at Swindon Town’s League One rivals.
He told the News & Star: “It has been discussed and the vibes I am getting are that yes, they (Swindon) are prepared to let him stay.
“There may become one or two more issues in terms of finances – they might ask for a bit more – but we haven’t got to that point yet.
“The player knows my wishes, (managing director) John Nixon knows my wishes, Swindon know what I’m asking, and up to this point they’ve been extremely good.
“Touch wood Swindon don’t get any injuries and don’t require him to come back quicker than they probably originally needed him to.”
“I believe he wanted to give himself the best opportunity to go back to Swindon, but because he has had one or two issues with his knees, I think they want him to prove he can perform on regular basis without having any consequences arising from playing Saturday-Tuesday games.
“The kid has been absolutely magnificent. He is quiet and unassuming but when he steps onto the pitch he has a huge stature and presence about him, and plays to a high level.”
