Cheltenham manager John Ward has revealed he tried to sign Icelandic powerhouse Brynjar Gunnarsson on a loan contract to ease his midfield woes.
'I asked Steve Coppell if I could have Gunnarsson on loan but nothing came of it,' said the Cheltenham boss.
Ward was keen to land the 31-year-old after struggling to replace Grant McCann who was sold to Barnsley.
'I then had to smile when I saw him score at Old Trafford.
'We didn't get him but at least it shows I am asking for some good players.'
Ward`s hunt for a midfield replacement continues…
