Partick Thistle have announced the loan signing of Brentford youngster Reece Cole.

The midfielder links up with Gary Caldwell’s men until January. A product of the Bees academy, he’ll look to build up some first-team experience before heading back to Griffin Park in 2020.

Cole could make his debut for the Jags when they face Montrose in Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup this weekend.

Cole will suit Partick Thistle according to Bees boss

Brentford B boss Neil MacFarlane seems to be excited about Cole heading to Maryhill on loan. He told the club’s website that the midfielder will ‘suit’ the style of play Caldwell is trying to implement.

Given that he has featured just once for the Brentford senior side, way back in March 2017, it’s no surprise that they have opted to send him out on loan. Cole should be a decent addition for Thistle though.

He has senior experience after spending some time with Macclesfield and Maidenhead United last term. Cole’s game is very technical, with a reliance on good passing ability rather than core strength.

Cole should complement the likes of Shea Gordon and Stuart Bannigan well. Whilst they are grafters in the middle, he will be playing the playmaker role, linking midfield to attack.

Providing that he gets minutes, Cole should be a good acquisition. He is a good passer of the ball and should add something different to the Thistle midfield.
