David Artell says that it would be difficult to sign Chuma Anene on a permanent deal because the on-loan striker still has two-and-half years on his contract to run at his parent club FC Midtjylland but that if his lottery numbers came in then he would love to!
Anene has scored 9 goals since signing on a season-long loan from his Danish club whilst stepping in for the injured Chris Porter.
Artell told the club’s official website: “The signing has come off on both sides and we are in contact with the people at Midtjylland.
“It probably looked a bit bleak when he wasn’t playing but Chuma understood that we needed time to integrate him into the way we wanted him to play and what we wanted him to do. I would think he has enjoyed his time here so far and he has probably learned a lot.
“He is a good player and now he will running Ports close for the top scorer, so that is only good news for us. What we need them to do is now to get to 15+ and perhaps one of them getting 20 goals because that would give us a great chance.
He added: “I would love to have Chuma but he has two and half years left on his deal. I will put my lottery on and if the numbers come up then I would go for Chuma.”
