IRELAND INTERNATIONAL GREG Cunningham has ended his loan spell at Blackburn Rovers to return to parent club Cardiff City.
The 28-year-old joined the Championship club on a season-long loan in August, and made 10 starts before suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury in a league game away to QPR two months later.
Galway native Cunningham, who has endured a torrid time with injuries throughout his career, will now return to the Bluebirds to continue his rehabilitation.
“Rovers would like to thank Greg for his efforts and we wish him well for the future,” a brief statement from Blackburn reads.
