Seven Canaries out on loanCAMERON McGeehan’s whirlwind start to his loan spell at Cambridge United continued as he helped the U’s hold giants Manchester United to a 0-0 draw in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup on Friday.
The 19-year-old, who moved on a month’s loan earlier in January, played the full 90 minutes as they earned an Old Trafford replay thanks to a resilient performance at the Abbey Stadium.
It came just a week after McGeehan shone on his Cambridge debut, scoring twice and earning the Man of the Match award in their 4-0 thumping of Newport County.
The midfielder, who captained the Canaries’ FA Youth Cup-winning side in 2013, is due to stay with the Sky Bet League Two outfit until February 16, so will be eligible for the replay, although a date is yet to be finalised.
Jamar Loza, who’s on loan at Sky Bet League One strugglers Yeovil Town, played 82 minutes as they drew 0-0 with Coventry City in their league meeting at Huish Park on Saturday.

Carlton Morris was an unused substitute for York City, who conceded a late equaliser to draw 1-1 with Burton Albion at Bootham Crescent on Saturday.
Morris has made six appearances, all off the bench, after joining the Minstermen in November.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic proved the difference between the two sides, bagging the winner on 60 minutes at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard. Saint-Etienne are in fourth place in the table, eight points off pacesetters Lyon.
Van Wolfswinkel went into the game having bagged a brace for his loan team as they beat Tours 5-3 in the Coupe de France the previous Wednesday. He has eight goals in all competitions this season.

Scunthorpe United’s Jacob Murphy also had a break, but the flying winger will be looking to get earn a starting spot for their match at home to MK Dons on Tuesday night.
