McCabe makes loan move to Pompey for rest of season

Rhys McCabe has joined division two Portsmouth on loan for the remainder of the season.

McCabe made a promising start to his career at Hillsborough after signing from Rangers in July 2012 but appeared to quickly fall out of favour with previous manager, Dave Jones, and has made just nine appearances for Wednesday this season.

Pompey boss – and former Owl – Richie Barker told his club’s official website: “We were eager to bring Rhys in when we knew he was available because he’s a quality player who will help keep possession in the centre of the park.

“He hasn’t been in the Sheffield Wednesday side recently and is hungry to play. He jumped at the chance to come here, which is a good sign.”
