Millwall to make decision on defender's future in summer after scoring start for Wycombe

GARY Rowett said a decision on Jason McCarthy’s long-term future will be made in the summer.

McCarthy, 24, made a scoring debut in Wycombe’s 2-1 win over Rochdale on Saturday after joining his former club on loan for the rest of the season.

Rowett believes James Brown’s potential means it was time to let McCarthy out to play regular football.

Rowett said: “It was a case of we had three right-backs at the club. Macca played really well in League One, that was the reason the club signed him.

“But he was quite clear he desperately wanted to play games. And when someone wants to play games you look at the options.

“I feel as though Browny can be a really good player for us, I really like him, I think he’s got loads of potential. Therefore I made a decision to end up with two players in the same position rather than three.

“It gives Macca the chance to play games and get that feeling back, and then we’ll make a decision as to what to do in the summer. But there’s no imminent want for Macca to not be at the club.

“He’s a good player, he did well against Newport and we’ll see how he does on loan.”
