Jobi rubbishes 'Palace loan' rumours

Flying winger Jobi McAnuff has quashed rumours on various Palace sites that he would welcome a loan move back to Selhurst Park after finding himself relegated to the bench at Watford.

A whole bunch of Eagles fans had flapped with excitement when former teammate and close friend, Leon Cort claimed that 1.75m signing Jobi had hinted that he 'could be tempted to rejoin his old club on loan` but the 25 year old has stood firm, confirming he wants to fight for a place back in Sir Aidy`s starting 11.

The pacy left winger told inquisite hacks down at the Croydon Guardian "I just said that to Leon in jest more than anything. I`m more than happy at Watford and I just want to knuckle down, work hard and win my place back".

Despite starting all 6 of the opening games of the season McAnuff has only grabbed just over an hours worth of action coming off the bench in the last 5 of Watford`s fixtures, mainly due to the sparkling form and goalscoring habit of Middlesborough loanee Adam Johnson.

The Good Ship Boothroyd though only has 3 recognised out and out wingers in the squad and with England U21 International Johnson only on a 3 month loan, Jobi`s chance to impress will come.

He went on to confirm to the bods in the know down at the Watford`s official club site "I don`t think there`s any time to be sulking. If I`m not on my game then someone will get past me again so I`ve got to put pressure on the boys that are playing. I`m happy at the club."

That`s the spirit son.
