Poole’s future, Diamond move, potential loans: The main Lincoln City transfer talking points as January looms

Lincoln City had a mixed first half of the season under new manager Mark Kennedy.

The Imps go into the halfway point of the season well below playoff spots.

But there is still potential for the club to improve on 17th place in last season’s League One table.

The January transfer window could present an opportunity for the club to improve their first-team squad to close the gap in the top six.

Here are the top Lincoln talking points as the winter window approaches…

Poole’s future

Regan Poole has been a standout player for Lincoln this season, making 20 league appearances.

It has been exclusively disclosed from Football League World that the likes of Sunderland, Huddersfield Town, Millwall, Blackpool, Luton Town and QPR were impressed by his performances in the third division this season ahead of the January transfer window.

Lincoln will have a fight to keep the Welshman at the club given the possibility of a move to the Championship.

However, the club will be able to negotiate a significant transfer fee as he signed a multi-year deal upon his arrival at the club in 2021.

Jack Diamond situation

Diamond arrived on loan from Sunderland in the summer and has been a key member of the squad ever since.

The 22-year-old has played 14 times in the league for Kennedy’s side, scoring five goals and assisting one.

Perhaps negotiating a permanent deal could be considered given how well he has adapted to his new surroundings.

It remains to be seen whether Sunderland see a future for the forward in their squad but this could be Lincoln’s chance to secure a longer-term deal for Diamond.

Potential Loan Moves

Some young players failed to establish themselves in the first-team squad this season.

Loan might be on the cards for the likes of Oisin Gallagher, Freddie Draper, Elicha Ahui and Jay Benn.

The quartet are yet to feature in the league this season but have all shown promise in the underage section.

A temporary outsourcing is a good opportunity for them to gain experience in the senior field.

This could prove to be a smart move if the club is able to find clubs willing to host the youngsters.
