David Artell says that if Perry Ng is to secure a move to the Championship this week then the club’s captain would fully deserve it. With speculation growing over the weekend over his future, the 24-year-old defender was withdrawn from the starting line-up to face Plymouth Argyle.
Artell says that he expected the right-back to go at some point and believes that a move now with just a few months of his contract remaining ‘would be a good deal for everyone.’
The Alex boss told the club’s official website: “It has been all amicable between the two clubs and we have reached an agreement on a deal that we feel is good for everyone.
“If it all goes through and I see no reason why it shouldn’t then we are all delighted for him. He works hard and has a terrific desire to improve. His attitude is first class and I would have no qualms about him stepping up and playing in the Championship. None whatsoever.
“He would deserve it and all the staff and players would be delighted for him.”
