Artell Talks Conor Grant Capture

30 August 2017

Crewe Alexandra Manager Dave Artell has revealed his delight in securing the services of Everton midfielder Conor Grant on loan until January.

The 22-year-old has a wealth of experience having enjoyed similar spells at Motherwell, Ipswich and twice at Doncaster, and Artell is hoping the midfielder can make a real difference in The Alex side.

Artell said: “First and foremost, Conor Grant is a good player. He has been there and seen it.

“He scored against us for Doncaster, twice, and we think we have a good player who can push our own two young lads. If they need a breather, then Conor is the man.

“All-in-all, I think we’ve got a real good player that can help us and increase our chances of having 11 players performing every week.

“This will be his fifth loan spell. He’s been at Ipswich, Motherwell & Doncaster twice, where he was top drawer last year & in his first spell he was even better.

“He’s had interest from a League One Club and he’s chosen to come here. He believes what we’re trying to do, and he believes that he’ll progress his career here, so that’s a really good thing to hear.

“We think we’ve got a really good player, and hopefully that will manifest itself in the games coming up.”
