Kevin Cooper is recovering from a knee injury and is in need of competitive matches.

Dave Jones is looking to loan him out for a month so he can get some playing time under his belt. Jones is not convinced that the odd reserve game is good enough.

"Reserve games here will not be as competitive and he's not going to get the same decision-making situations," said Jones.

"He needs to test his knee to see whether he's going to be right for us and he's in agreement with me.

"So I'm looking to loan him out for a month, and only a month.

"We've got the two-week break because of the internationals coming up, so I've got to get him out somewhere.

"He's in agreement with me. The reserve team football I've got here is not going to give him the level of football that I want him to be at."
