WREXHAM boss Brian Carey has ruled against extending JOHN RUDDY’S loan spell at the Racecourse.
The 21-year-old keeper had expressed a desire to stay and help with the League Two side’s battle against relegation after completing his one-month deal.
But with Mike Ingham returning to full fitness Carey yesterday decided to send Ruddy back to parent club Everton – despite having only Michael Jones as back up.
With Ingham set to join up with Lawrie Sanchez’s squad next Monday, the manager is hunting for another shotstopper ahead of the Dragons’ clash with Bristol Rovers on March 24.
Said Carey: “Ruddy has gone back to Everton as Mike Ingham is going to be fit now again and I would just like to thank him for his efforts.
“Ruddy wanted to stay for another month but we have decided to send him back. It wasn’t a case of Everton calling him back and t wasn't a money issue.
Carey added: “With the international matches the following weekend, Mike will be going on the Monday, March 19.
“So we will have to deal with that when it happens.
“We will just have too look at it closer to the time, but a loan is a possibility as it is for other positions.”
