McGeehan has remained with Pompey during football’s lockdown and also assisted with the club’s community effort.

He is presently training with the squad ahead of their first play-off semi-final fixture against Oxford United on July 3.

Struber told the Barnsley Chronicle: ‘They will stay at their loan clubs for the rest of this season, then we will see after that what is the best for those players.’

McGeehan has made 15 appearances and scored twice since arriving on loan in January.
