Cornesy told the FIVEaa sports show:

“I don’t think so. Only those within the club can answer this but if you listen to the drums… is he a negative influence? Is his situation and his relationship with Don Pyke turning out to be a little destructive within the group?

“Is his contribution positive or negative? He strikes me as the sort of guy who would be a union delegate, stir everything up and make life uncomfortable but is it too uncomfortable?

“There will be a spot for him but maybe not this week. He’s contracted for two years on a very good salary. Would he have any traction as an opportunity to be traded? And would [another club] pay the money, that’s the thing. It’s going to be interesting to see.

“I’ve enjoyed watching him play ... I don’t love him as a footballer but I like his contribution. Good mark, massive kick, I like that about him.”
