Steve Davis acted quickly to bring in Cardiff City defender on a month's loan after losing Ray
Steve Davis is delighted that he was able to bring in Cardiff City defender Semi Ajayi on loan for a month after he lost George Ray with a broken ankle on Tuesday evening.
Ajayi, 22, will go straight into the Crewe Alexandra side that face Oldham at Gresty Road tomorrow and will partner his former Cardiff team-mate Ben Nugent at the heart of the defence.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “There was not a lot of time to get one through yesterday, but we went to work on it and managed to get one in.
“I am pleased that we have been able to get Semi in and it was important we did something because we were two centre-halves down and Stephen Kingsley went back to Swansea, which didn’t help us. We needed some cover and it was great to get another body in.
“He has spent some time on loan at Wimbledon and did well for them but I’ve told him it’s a step up in level coming into League One. There are better teams and better players. It’s a good league.
“I’ve told him that he will come here to play. He won’t be on the bench and he will cover until we have H (Harry Davis) back fit.
“Semi trains with the Cardiff first-team and has been at Arsenal so he knows quality and now it is about him transferring that into League One and competitive games.”
