Well if Steve Coppell thinks so, he can bring in another loan player as Big Ben Burgess & Steven Sidwell loans do not count anymore as they have been extended to "long loans".

Each club is allowed up to eight "short" loans during a season, but any loans that are upgraded to "long" loans are counted against the total such as Big Ben Burgess and Steve Sidwell.

Coppell is therefore allowed another five more short loans this season, he unfortunately cannot take more than two players on a short loan at any one time though.
