The lad knows where the goal is, would like to see him back in a yellow top, deserves a chance, now I know some will mock, but Defoe hasn't done to bad from being loaned to the lower leagues.

Loads of players benefit from a Football League loan spell & go on to do well at a much higher level & hopefully Britt will follow suit. To be honest, it would never surprise me if they tried to loan him out again next season, especially if we were to be promoted this season. Definitely got ability though.
