UPDATE: No sooner than we post this, Grimsby have announced the departure of Jordan Maguire-Drew by mutual consent.
Grimsby Town manager Paul Hurst has said that Jordan Maguire-Drew is expected to return to his parent club this week following the expiry of his initial loan deal.
Speaking to the Grimsby Telegraph, Hurst said: “As it stands Jordan [Maguire-Drew] will return [this week]. To my mind, if a permanent move was going to happen then that would’ve been sorted by now, so I’m expecting him to be back with us. If someone comes back and they conduct themselves in a certain way, and we all know what that means, then they won’t be involved but that also goes for the players that haven’t gone out on loan.”
“Ultimately, he’s our player I said that I reluctantly agreed to let him go out on loan, I wasn’t pushing him out the door so it is very much in Jordan’s court in terms of how he comes back. I’m very open-minded with it all and everything I’ve seen and read suggests he’s done well [at Yeovil] so time my mind, he is contracted with us and will be back, but it is up to him now.”
Following the defeat to Bromley, Glovers’ gaffer Mark Cooper said he expected a permanent deal to be confirmed in the early part of this week with the suggestion that personal terms had already been agreed when the initial loan deal was agreed.
Cooper said that a permanent deal for the forward was “more or less done.” He added: “Hopefully we can announce that early in the week.“
Clearly there’s some miscommunication somewhere in the matrix, Maguire-Drew has played just three league games in the Green and White of Yeovil including scoring the all important second goal against Torquay on New Years’ Day.
