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.
