Chris Maguire keen to end Rotherham stay says Oxford boss

Chris Maguire wants to cancel his contract at Rotherham, according to Oxford boss Michael Appleton.

The 27-year-old is back with Millers after a successful loan spell with the League Two U's ended at the weekend and played in a reserve game this week.

He impressed during his stint with Oxford, scoring one goal in his nine games and Appleton is desperate to get the midfielder back at the Kassam Stadium.

But whether another loan move materialises or a permanent deal arises depends on Maguire’s contractual situation in South Yorkshire.

"We certainly would like to do something and I know Chris, having spoken to him on Saturday, would love to stay," Appleton said.

"It's now down to him, his representatives and Rotherham. The frustrating thing from Chris's point of view is that he's in a bit of limbo.

"I know he would prefer to get some sort of settlement. Whether Rotherham are prepared to do that, we'll have to wait and see.

"The last half a dozen games, his fitness levels are where they should be. From our point of view, we're delighted with his contribution and hopefully he can contribute a little bit more."

Maguire asking to tear his contract up is unlikely to be a problem for boss Neil Redfearn, who does not see the former Sheffield Wednesday man in his plans at New York Stadium, though it is likely to come down to a financial agreement being reached.
