Ian McCall is hopeful that Partick Thistle can get Brentford to send Reece Cole back to Firhill for the rest of the campaign.

After a start troubled by injury, Cole has shown his true potential over the last month. He’s scored on a few occasions as Thistle look to fend off any relegation fears from the Championship and provided a sumptuous assist against Inverness recently.

His return to the Bees is due next month after signing a six-month deal in the summer. It would be a blow for Thistle to lose their influential midfielder so soon after he’s hit form.

In a transfer update, McCall has detailed that Cole could return next month and that the club are in discussions with Brentford currently.

“January will come and we may have to do some business but I’ll have to wait and see,” McCall said. “I think we’re talking to Brentford just now about extending his loan.

“The boy really wants to stay so I think that may be sorted.”
