MIDFIELDER Paul Carden could return to Accrington Stanley, according to reports from loan club Cambridge United.
The 28-year-old went on a month’s stay with the Conference club after failing to hold down a place at the FES since he signed in the summer.
Cambridge boss Jimmy Quinn has been impressed with Carden, who has started all of his loan games and wants to keep the ex-Chester and Peterborough man at the Abbey.
But Quinn said: "John Coleman has said he thinks Ian Craney could be heading to Peterborough and he might not have enough midfield players so he is uncertain if Paul can stay much longer with us.
"We just have to hope something can happen."
However striker Lee McEvilly looks likely to stay with League Two rivals Rochdale.
McEvilly went initially for a month on loan deadline week but it was with a view to staying at Spotland until the end of the season.
The former Wrexham man has scored twice in three games for the Dale after failing to get off the mark with Stanley this season.
