Boss says Brandy becoming available came too late
Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis admits that if Fabien Brandy had been a part of his plans now then he may have well looked to have signed the winger. Brandy enjoyed a successful two-month loan spell with us earlier in the season but returned to his parent club Rotherham United after suffering a troublesome calf injury.
Brandy has now left Rotherham by mutual consent, but Davis has indicated that he hasn’t any room in his squad to fit the 25-year-old in after signing Lauri Dalla Valle on a permanent contract and extending the loan deal for Nicky Ajose until the end of the season.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I’ve seen that Feb has left Rotherham and that he is available. I know his agent and we had a conversation about him. I was honest with him and just told him that our own squad was now at a maximum and I’ve improved our attacking options.
“That is the only reason I wouldn’t be interested in him because he came here and did well for us. If he had all happened early and he had left Rotherham when he was already here with us, then it could have been different.
“It is just that I have enough options in the forward areas with the ones I’ve been able to bring in and with the ones we already had here.
He added: "He was a good lad and we wish him well."
