Villanueva and Ooijer Futures Up For Debate
Carlos Villanueva and Andre Ooijer are two of the faces that Paul Ince is most keen to sort out the futures of.
Both have had speculation about them in the last few weeks and it won't go away until both players futures have been sorted.
Carlos is on a season long loan deal and Andre is about as consistent a performer as you can get for Rovers.
However, whereas Carlos is keen to extend his stay here, Andre Ooijer has been linked with a return to Holland.
Ince, speaking to Sky Sports, said 'There are players that we need to make decisions on'
'We want to keep improving the side and I'll sit down with the Chairman and we'll talk about the situation of players coming in and players going out.
'We are fully aware we have to make a decision on Carlos by the end of December, but it has been hard for him.
'He's a young lad and he needs time to settle in, but because we haven't started the season so well it has been hard to throw him in.
'It would have been nice if we were comfortably mid-table and we could have a look at him so it's a difficult one with Carlos. Andre has been fantastic, he's a character, he's a leader and he's played at major tournaments for Holland.
'He's seen it all before and he's the type of person who's much needed at this club, that is for sure.'
I think we can all agree that we haven't seen as much of Villanueva as we would of liked but there is no doubting he is a talent.
Ooijer on the other hand is a solid member of the squad and can be counted on for good performances in the right and centre spots of midfield.
Time will tell but seasoned players like these two are hard to replace.
