They say that good things come to those who wait and manager Gary Waddock is about to sign midfielder Scott Donnelly on loan from Swansea City for the rest of the 2010/11 season according to reports from Sky Sports.
If the signing comes to fruition it will end a pursuit that has lasted almost a year. Donnelly was on his way from Aldershot Town to Adams Park last January until he was told to turn back by the head honchos at the Recreation Ground.
The deal fell through with the Hampshire side looking to squeeze more money from Wanderers' owner Steve Hayes. He remained with the Shots until the summer when again it looked as if he was all set to become a Chairboy.
There was however a spanner in the works and it was Swansea City manager Paulo Sousa who swooped to steal the young playmaker from under our noses with the lure of Championship football too much to resist.
It turned a bit sour for Donnelly when Sousa left just three days later to become manager of Leicester City and his replacement at the Liberty Stadium Brendan Rogers didn't appear to fancy him. He has given him one start in the first round of the League Cup and one substitute appearance in the League.
Donnelly began his career at Queens Park Rangers and it was there that Waddock saw something in the young player. He was released by the R's in January 2007 and spent the rest of the season playing for Wealdstone.
Waddock invited him for a trial at Aldershot that summer and signed him initially on a non-contract basis. Donnelly fought his way into the Shots side and helped them to the Conference title and promotion to the Football League in 2007/08. He had the honour of scoring the goal that clinched promotion and the Shots first ever goal back in the League.
Donnelly, who turned 23 on Christmas Day, scored 14 goals from midfield for the Shots last season, helping them to the League Two play-offs. A goalscoring midfielder is something Wycombe have been looking for and Donnelly fits that bill. He is also a creative player and will give the Blues strength in depth as they close in on promotion back to League One at the first time of asking.
