Danny Mayor hopes he can make a difference during his time here on loan
New loan signing Danny Mayor admits it was all a bit of whirlwind after making his debut for the Club against Cheltenham Town hours after joining on loan.
After hearing of Blues’ interest in signing him on Monday night, Danny made his way down to Southend on Tuesday afternoon, just in time to be named in Blues’ starting line-up for the game at Roots Hall last night.
He’s now heading back up north to grab some of his belongings before his first training session with his new teammates on Thursday morning.
The 22-year-old said: “It was great to play, but it certainly was a bit hectic. I heard about the interest late on Monday so it all happened very quickly.
“I know that the Club have played in the Championship before and have aims of getting back there, so when I heard of the interest I was very keen to come and play here.
“I didn’t expect to be playing quite as quickly as I was but it was good to get out there. All the lads have been great and really helped me settle in quickly.
“I obviously know Caolan from Sheffield Wednesday so that has helped as well. I enjoyed my debut and thought we possibly deserved something from the game.
“They didn’t really create many chances but we just couldn’t find a goal early enough to get us back into the game.
“I’m heading back up home now to get some of my things and then I will be back down for training on Thursday.
“It’s important I get out on the training ground and get to know a bit more about the way the team plays and the other players.
“We’ve got a couple of days now before another big game so I’m hoping I can settle in quickly and make an impression as soon as possible.”
Fans will have been given a taste of what Danny has to offer on Tuesday night as he twice did very well to set up Ben Reeves for a chance at goal in the first half, and Danny says he hopes his performances will ‘excite’ fans.
He added: “Hopefully the way I play will excite the fans and I can really make an impact here during my time at the Club.
“It’s initially for 28-days and we will see how that goes before deciding whether or not to extend it until the end of the season.
“I try to get at my man, use my pace and get crosses into the box. The most important thing though is that the team wins games and hopefully I will contribute to that.”
