Re: Wayne Bridge on loan? Unfortunately someone like Bridge is all we can hope for. Normally a loan signing is a kind of 'try before you buy' scenario, or a way of giving that player experience. The fact that we aren't looking to sign someone permanently means that we are probably restricted to players who other clubs want to either get off the wage bill for a couple of months, or get a bit of match fitness. The only alternative to someone like Bridge might be a youngster from the continent or the lower leagues who Wenger may consider taking a punt on as a permanent deal in the summer.
