Clarets striker, Alex MacDonald appears keen to make a permanent move from Burnley to to League 2 Plymouth Argyle during the January transfer window. Plymouth gaffer, Carl Fletcher has also admitted he wants to conclude a deal for MacDonald in January assuming they can find the cash!
MacDonald's second loan spell with the Pilgrims ended this week after the Johnstone's Paint Trophy last 16 tie against Oxford United at Home Park on Tuesday night.
He told the local Devon Herald Sport:
'As it stands at the minute, I'm going back to Burnley. I haven't spoken to the manager (Dyche) up there yet.
'Under the previous manager (Howe) we were talking in terms of me coming down permanently.
'At the minute, nothing is sorted but it's something I'm open to and something me and the manager (Fletcher) have spoken about on a number of occasions.
'It's up to the two clubs now to agree something and then give me the okay to open talks and get personal stuff sorted out.'
'I don't want to go back to a club if I'm not going to be playing.
'There is nothing better than playing on a Saturday. I enjoy that the most. I think maybe it is time for me to move on from Burnley but that, at the minute, is out of my hands. It's not up to me.
'I will see what happens over these next few weeks now.'
The 22-year-old Scotland Under 21 forward has been at Home Park for the past three months, making 14 starts and two substitute appearances scoring just the one goal. MacDonald also spent the last two months of the 2011-12 season on loan to the Pilgrims helping them escape relegation from League Two.
MacDonald made his debut for the Clarets back in April 2008 but has made just two starts since then in addition to 15 substitute appearances. During that time, he has had loan spells with Falkirk, Inverness Caledonian Thistle as well as the two spells at Argyle.
Sometimes it is simply time to move on, and this could be that time for Alex! We wish him well if he does leave Turf Moor in the New Year.
