James Vaughan – Birmingham City

To date, the striker has made three starts and one substitute appearance for the Blues. 

James played the full 90 minutes as Birmingham City defeated Cardiff City 1-0 at St. Andrew’s in front of the Sky Sports cameras last Friday.

He will be hoping to feature again when Gary Rowett’s side plays at Sheffield Wednesday in the Sky Bet Championship on Boxing Day.

His current loan spell with Birmingham City runs until 2 January 2016.

Jordy Hiwula – Wigan Athletic

Jordy has scored five goals in just seven starts and four substitute appearances for Wigan in the first half of 2015/16, but the majority of his playing time has come in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy. 

His last competitive game came in that competition back on 10 November, when he scored a brace in a 4-0 JPT win over Blackpool.

More recently he was an unused substitute in Wigan’s 2-0 away win at Barnsley on Saturday.

Jordy’s loan is due to run until 31 May 2016, although there is a recall clause in January 2016.

Joe Wright – Accrington Stanley

Wales Under-21 international centre back Joe has made 12 starts and one substitute appearance for League 2 side Accrington Stanley this season, having recently established himself in the team.

He played the full 90 minutes in Accrington’s last game; a 1-1 draw at Stevenage on Saturday.

Stanley is back in action on Boxing Day, hosting Carlisle United in Sky Bet League 2. 

Joe’s current loan spell runs until 2 January 2016.

William Boyle – York City

Development Squad captain Will has made four starts for League 2 York City so far, with the latest coming in an important win on Saturday. 

‘Boyley’ played all 90 minutes as the Minstermen defeated Morecambe 2-1 at home; that was the team’s first league win since September and the first under new Manager Jackie McNamara. 

After the game, McNamara commented: "He (William) has got stronger by the game. He has a great attitude and I believe he has a big future in the game.”
Boyle will be hoping to play again when City hosts Northampton Town on Boxing Day.

His loan spell runs until 3 January 2016.

Liam Coogans – Queen of the South

19 year-old striker Liam has made three substitute appearances in the Scottish Championship this season, but he hasn’t been on the pitch since a defeat at Morton in mid-November. 

Most recently, Liam was an unused substitute in Queen of the South’s 1-0 defeat at Hibernian last Saturday.

The Scottish Championship is now on a winter break, with the next set of fixtures taking place on 2 January. Liam’s loan expires on 4 January 2016.

Ed Wilczynski – Hyde United

Goalkeeper Ed has made a total of nine starts for loan club Hyde, most recently playing in a 3-1 home defeat to Darlington 1883 last weekend. 

Ed, whose loan at Hyde ends on 28 December 2015, will hope to feature in the game at Ashton United on Boxing Day.
