City boss Peter Grant is keen for his fringe players, including Jarvis, to see first team action and is prepared to let players out on loan.

“To say to Ryan Jarvis he is going to be here and be bit part again and six months down the line he hasn't played any games - I have to be very careful. It is something I have to look at - that I am not going to be in a position where I don't have somebody to perform for us - so the goalposts have changed for me as well.

“Thankfully I have two weeks left and fortunately there is also a loan period between now and the end of March, so I think you will see it won't be just January we are talking about - it will be the end of March as well.”
