Sheffield Wednesday defender Rory McArdle has returned to Rochdale on loan.

McArdle rejoins Dale on a temporary deal until January 8 having also impressed last season while on loan to Steve Parkin's League Two side.

McArdle made 20 appearances during a seven-month stint at Spotland last term.

And, with the player having seen his path to the first team blocked at Hillsborough, despite the recent managerial upheaval at Wednesday, McArdle is keen to acquire more regular football.

The 19-year-old has made just two appearances for The Owls so far this term, both as a substitute.
