There’s more to Jack Storer’s return than meets the eye. Having a loan spell at League Two Yeovil Town cut embarrassingly short shows the cracks in the players make-up.

Back in August, Storer burst on to the scene as a second half substitute against Wolves at St. Andrews. The hype surrounding his inclusion was in the back of his head and with an eagerness to impress, the striker was sent off for violent conduct. Gary Rowett went public with his condemnation of the 19-year-old.

A statement from Yeovil Town today suggested that Storer had returned to Blues for ‘personal reasons’ so I’m not claiming that Storer has been up to no good. This article is an analysis of why a player who was so close to the first team picture was sent on loan in the first place.

It’s likely that Gianfranco Zola will seek pastures new for Storer on a temporary basis once again. The experience he craves will not be on offer in the development squad – he’s been there and done that. Storer needs first team football. Only then will he learn how to chanel his aggression correctly and how to apply himself. And maybe, just maybe, he can return to Blues and make an impact on the first team.
