Bischoff Future In Doubt

On-loan Manchester City defender Mikkel Bischoff has revealed he may return to his native Denmark for first-team football after his contract ends with the club this summer.

The centre-back helped the Owls avoid relegation to League One since his move from the City of Manchester stadium and many Wednesday fans have called on Paul Sturrock to sign him up when his deal at City expires.

But Bischoff has revealed that he may return home to play first-team football should the offer arise.

He told the Danish press: 'I don't regard it as a step backwards to return to the Superliga. If you are good enough, you will surely get the chance to go abroad again. I don't exclude it.'

Bischoff has made four appearances for the Owls since his move in March - and the Owls haven't lost while the defender has been on the pitch. His injury problems may concern Owls boss Paul Sturrock though, and throw a move for him into doubt.

The 24-year-old had a similar loan move at Wolverhampton Wanderers last season but injuries meant that boss Glenn Hoddle refused to sign him up permanently.

Bischoff is likely to feature in the Owls final game of the 2005/06 season away at Derby County on Sunday, with his future at the Owls being decided shortly after.

No mention of it here, but what sort of injury problems does he have? Do you happen to know what standard the danish league is?

Don't know about his injuries. The Danish league is compatible with the Belgian or the Dutch (not counting the top4), or the Championship... the top Danish team could maybe even compete at Premier League level, but we have a Scottish situation with two teams dominating and the others popping up once in a while...

Id say playing at wednesday would probably be the same as playing at a top Danish side. Anyone would prefer to stay at home, especially if Sheffield is the other option :) Seriously though, I think he'd rather stay at wednesday if we offered him a deal and it meant first team football. From his quote it seems like he's using that as a last resort.

I'd say it's pretty much the same.. maybe bigger crowds at S6? BTW I think the 'Scottish situation' is happening Europe-wide - look at the tables.
