Michael Beale reckons a loan move might help Hemir, who he describes as a “fantastic finisher”. However, he says sending Eliezer Mayenda on loan would be much less likely.

HEMIR IS OLDER

“We’ll have to see what comes in. Maybe it would help Hemir because he’s a little bit older, although I’ve seen some really good signs.”

IMPROVE CERTAIN AREAS

“He’s a fantastic finisher, he just has to work on some other areas of his game. His fitness, he’s not played a lot of football, when I came in he was someone I wanted to get their legs moving it’s fair to say.”

LEARNING ON THE JOB

“The type of player he is, he’s only going to get better as he gets older because he’s a bigger stronger centre-forward, so backing into centre-halves, he’s come out of playing B-team football in Portugal to playing in the Championship against hurly-burly men. He’s learning on the job.”

MAYENDA A DIFFERENT PROSPECT

“Mayenda is much younger in terms of his football. Being here and working with our staff and playing the odd Under-21 game, that can help his confidence, like the other day, he scored two excellent goals and got an assist. I’ve seen that bounce from him in training. These boys have come in from overseas and everything has changed around them. We really have to work hard to see the same player in our building that we wanted to recruit from outside.”
