After guiding his side to promotion to League One earlier this year, Bolton Wanderers manager Ian Evatt decided to make some alterations to his squad in the summer transfer window.
As well as drafting in the likes of Amadou Bakayoko, Will Aimson and Elias Kachunga on permanent deals, the Trotters boss also sanctioned a number of departures ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
One of the individuals who was allowed to leave the club on a temporary basis was Ronan Darcy.
Here, we have decided to take a look at how Darcy has been getting on away from Bolton since making this particular switch.
After being limited to just 11 appearances in all competitions last season for Bolton, Darcy would have been hoping to feature regularly for Sogndal in recent months.
However, the 21-year-old had to wait until September 22nd to make his debut for his new side due to injury.
Since featuring for Sogndal in their clash with Asane Fotball, Darcy has been used sporadically by the club in the OBOS-ligaen.
Quiz: Are these 22 Bolton Wanderers stats real or fake?
In the five games that he has played in Norway’s second-tier, the attacking midfielder has yet to score a goal or register an assist.
Still adapting to life at his new club, Darcy will be determined to prove his worth by producing an eye-catching performance in Sogndal’s clash with Stjordals-Blink this afternoon.
Currently fifth in the OBOS-ligaen standings, Sogndal could edge closer to sealing a place in the play-offs if they secure victory today.
Darcy’s loan spell with the Norwegian outfit is set to expire in December.
If Evatt is unable to provide the attacking midfielder with the game time that he needs to improve as a player, he may find it beneficial to sanction another loan move for Darcy in the January transfer window.
