Angelo Balanta set to unlock League 2 defences – Peter Taylor
Balanta has scored goals for QPR
Wycombe have signed 18-year old Colombian striker Angelo Balanta on a two-month loan deal. The skillful youngster has joined from QPR, and goes straight into the squad for Saturday’s game against Bradford.
Peter Taylor told the Wycombe website:
“He is a little bit different and that’s why I wanted him.
“He is a very exciting player. We need someone that can unlock defences, and I think Angelo can do that.”
Elsewhere Shrewsbury have replaced the outgoing Michael Symes with Southampton teenager Jamie White. The 19-year old has joined on a month’s loan, and can play on the wing, or up front, and adds much needed pace to the Shrewsbury side.
And finally, (so many loan deals!) Luton have signed Kevin Gallen on (you guessed it) a month’s loan. The MK Don’s striker has had limited opportunities, and makes the short trip to Kenilworth Road. Luton fans can watch the video below, for a taste of the finishing they can expect over the next month.

An update on the loan moves happening over the last few days.
Forte has joined County for a month
Scunthorpe striker Jonathan Forte has joined Notts County on a month’s loan. The 22-year old will make his debut against Barnet on Saturday, with the hope of lifting the Magpie’s up the table.
Not Junior, but Abu Agogo has signed for Barnet on a month’s loan from Arsenal. The 19-year old defender will give Paul Fairclough options, after Joe Devera was sidelined for a month.
Elsewhere, Shrewsbury Town striker Michael Symes, 25, has joined Bournemouth for a month on loan. Shrews boss Paul Simpson told the club’s website: “We have a big squad and I felt that the opportunity for Michael to go and get a month out on loan at Bournemouth would do him the world of good.”
And Gylfi Sigurdsson has returned to Reading after the Royals turned down Shrewsbury’s request to keep him for a further month.
