ROY Keane has insisted that no official decision has been made on Stern John's future, although it seems likely that the 33-year-old is on his way back to Crystal Palace this weekend.

Reports yesterday suggested that Keane will not be extending John's loan stay from Selhurst Park for the rest of the season.

The Town boss did not confirm this, but it appears as though the Trinidad & Tobago international will be back in south London after tomorrow's game at Preston.

“I have not really spoken to Stern since the game the other night,”insisted Keane.

“We have not officially made any decision. He's due to have his last official game for us tomorrow, will train with us today and will be in the squad.
