    Central Coast Mariners midfielder Michael McGlinchey may have to wait to go on loan to Scottish club Motherwell.

    The 23-year old New Zealand international was reportedly set to return to Scotland where he had stints with Celtic and Dunfermline but Mariners coach Lawrie McKinna has said that a deal was not agreed upon and was unsure if anything would happen before the January transfer window closes on Monday.

    "There's no Motherwell deal yet. That's came from over there. Motherwell have inquired about getting him on loan but that's as far as it goes," McKinna told

    "There's nothing at all. The board have to look at our position. The deadline is Monday so the club will decide what's right for the club."

    McKinna admitted he would like McGlinchey to stay with the Mariners as they chase a top-six finish and play-off qualification (they are currently four points out) but said he would not stand in his way.

    “It's a hard one because you don't want to stand in anyone's way but if we beat Perth this weekend we've got a chance for the finals. So I'm just concentrating on getting into fifth or sixth spot," added McKinna.
