Ledson, who has made 22 appearances so far this season, will help Cambridge in their push for a playoff place.

Ledson could easily fill Gibson's roll of 5 half games during next season, whilst Keiran Dowell should do a similar thing in Osman's absence. Brewster maybe around to warm Kone's seat on the bench, coming on for 10-minute cameos.
This would bolster the numbers and allow bigger sums of money for key areas such as goalkeeper and left midfield.
The only other thing is though, is maybe the lads may suit being out on loan again, this time going up a division to test there metal.
Either way, Ledson and the lads are getting invaluable experience whilst playing competitive football out on loan.

Perhaps he has found his level!

"They've (Everton) got him as their player and we're only borrowing him, but he's been a good player for us, he really has.
"He's been a huge player for us, not just on the football field but in the training environment and in the community as well.
"He's really embraced what Cambridge United is all about and he's become one of our own, really, and that's great when you're talking about loan players coming from a huge football club.
"His performances have been at such a level that I think he wants to stay here as well. He's enjoying playing for us."

Manager, Darren May: "I think he has made a great impact on the football club as a whole and shows a tenacity about him,"
"...moving to Yeovil when you've been at a Premier League club can be a shock, but he has carried his responsibility like a man and credit to him."
Midfielder Matty Dolan: "He has been a credit to himself since he came in. Yeovil have given him the experience and he is repaying that with his performances."
"He's a top quality player and is really highly thought of at Everton."

Ryan is still only 18, is going to be a very good player, has a good football brain and will continue to improve because it's in his make up. Not only does he want to be footballer at the top level, he has the desire to take him there.
Keep on working and learning, Ryan, I can see you becoming a top player at Everton, along with Liam Walsh and Jonjoe Kenny, they all have the grit and nouse to make it.

Now he's had a good run of games under his belt, I'd recommend two possible options for next season: stay at Cambridge for a full season or enter the first team squad at Everton (with many old guys on the way out, there should be space in the squad). The latter only valid if he will be trusted with adequate game-time (10-15 games minimum).

It's Liam Walsh, down at the other end of League 2 with Yeovil, who has really impressed however. He's been instrumental in dragging them out of trouble, is already a huge fan-favourite, and was featuring regularly in the League's Team of the Week before a silly straight red a couple of games back. Looks like a real creative talent.
Conor McAleney has chipped in with some excellent goals over at Wigan. Make or break time for him this summer.
Jonjoe Kenny's made a good impression out on loan too. Sounds like a walking yellow card, but few wingers come out on top against him.
The less said about Garbutt's time at Fulham, the better. Been a difficult year for the youngster, and probably made more frustrating by the thought that given Everton's injury problems at left back this season, he might well have been giving a long run in our team if he'd stuck around.

If we could get back talented 19 year olds with 50-odd League One games under their belt then I think that would be very promising.

He's been a good player for us in a midfield partnership with James Dunne and was missed over Easter when away with England.
He's been unlucky not to have won a few man of the match awards and his general play and attitude has been good to see from a young Premier League team player.
He looks like he's enjoying playing here and isn't afraid of a tackle and the rougher nature of League 2 football.
He will stand up for himself against older, bigger and more experienced players, which he did yesterday against Newport's Alec Rodman.
You have a good player in Ryan who could easily be in your first team squad next season and it's been a pleasure to see him play!
We will have to look hard to replace him next season, unless you let us loan him again.

As I said before Ledson had same at Newport and walked away smiling, Rodman talked to Ledson not!
Ledson sometimes sees passes League 2 players don't always read, so not really Hollywood passes in that sense!

Makes very interesting reading and looks like a lot of effort is put into it.
