The 18-year-old scored four times in 13 league games for the Owls and Moyes has seen a positive improvement in the teenager.

"We were happy for Ross to go out there and play the games on loan. I think it's been good for him," Moyes told the club's official website.

"He's been playing in big games. We've had him watched in all the games and I've watched him personally play in two games live against Leeds United and Blackburn.

"For the first three or four games, it took him a little bit of time to settle, but he has then made a bigger impression.

"Ross has done great. He is a young boy, 18, and those games in the Championship will bode well for us and for him.

"It's not unlike when we put Leon Osman out on loan. I wouldn't say it's an exact similarity, but we put Ross out to try and get him ready for Premier League action."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
