Mark McGuinness looks to be on the verge of returning to Cardiff City from his loan spell at Hillsborough.
Darren Moore said today that McGuinness is available for tomorrow’s FA Cup third round tie with Newcastle but that the Wednesday and Cardiff will then discuss the player’s future.
Media articles in Wales indicate that the 22-year-old defender will shortly be going back to his parent club and, if so, that will be a big blow to us as he has been outstanding this season.
Moore said today: “If he is to go back tomorrow then yes, it is a blow, but my message would be that we should be full of joy for what he has brought to the football club.
“He has been absolutely tremendous for us and, at the same time, he has undoubtedly improved as a player here.
“His performances have been getting stronger and stronger and if he does go back then he will do so with our full blessing and we thank him for his time here.”
The Owls boss said that if McGuinness does leave then the return of Dominic Iorfa and Akin Famewo from injury eases the situation and he would want to take that into consideration before making any other possible moves for defensive cover during the January transfer window.
