We’re sorry to begin a loan review with sad news, but we can confirm midfielder Glen Rea has returned to Kenilworth Road after suffering a serious knee injury during his spell with Wigan Athletic.
The Town midfielder made four appearances after joining the Latics on transfer deadline day in January, aiming to play a key role in their push for automatic promotion from Sky Bet League One.
Following his debut against Stoke in the FA Cup fourth round, he then appeared twice as a substitute before making his debut against AFC Wimbledon a fortnight ago. Sadly, Glen was sent off after 15 minutes of the win over the Dons and saw a consultant this week ahead of scheduled surgery.
We would like to point out that this is not the same knee that Glen injured in the 2018-19 League One season, when he returned to full fitness to return to the Championship team and play 71 times for the Hatters. because.
Good luck to Glen, who knows he will have the full support of everyone at Kenilworth Road throughout his rehab and is determined to come back stronger than ever once again.
