Alex McLeish has said so far he has no plans to allow Fabian Delph to extend his loan spell at his former club, Leeds United.
The midfielders initial loan ends in a fortnight’s time and he has been getting some good game time whilst back at Elland Road but the club have so far failed in their efforts for an extension.
Delph can remain with the club for a maximum of 93 days under the terms of his emergency loan, which if extensions are timed correctly, could still see him remain at the club until their penultimate game of the season, but Leeds’ hopes to make the deal official failed in the transfer window.
McLeish has however told the press.
‘We haven’t made any plans to extend anything at the moment. We’ll take stock when the month is up and have a look at things again. If he’s playing well he might see there’s an opportunity, we hope he’ll come back at a level where he says to us ‘there’s no way you can leave me out now’.’
Quotes from Yorkshire Evening Post.
Fair enough I can see the sense in us not wanting to officially let him stay until the end of the season incase we have injury worries and we don’t have a recall option, but whilst he’s getting pitch time, regaining his confidence and really getting match sharp again after his injury there is also little sense in bringing him back to sit on the bench.
