Doncaster Rovers boss Paul Dickov is weighing up extending the loan of Manchester United striker Kiko Macheda.

Dickov would like striker Federico Macheda to return to the Keepmoat Stadium to help move Rovers away from the relegation zone.

"We've been told by United that they want to take their loan players back in for a bit to assess them. Hopefully we can get him back out after that," said Dickov of the 22-year-old Italian, whose deal expired on New Year's Eve.
