McGeehan joined League One Portsmouth this week having played less than 30 minutes under new boss Struber and he will spend the rest of the season on loan at Fratton Park.

Several other fringe players are set to leave, with Mallik Wilks in discussion with Hull over a move.

Struber said: “We have a good squad and also we have players that we will speak with and (say) maybe it is better to change the situation with maybe a loan or we sell.

“We must look in the next weeks what is the best for the players with no game-time. We are in a good exchange with the players and the next weeks will show what is best."

McGeehan was a key player in Barnsley's promotion last season under Daniel Stendel, who also picked him at the start of this campaign.

Caretaker manager Adam Murray also liked the 24-year-old, but Struber did not take to him and gave him just two substitute appearances.

McGeehan now has the chance for a second successive promotion medal at Portsmouth.

"For him, it is a good situation to get him game time,” Struber added.

“He was unlucky here. For him and the club, it's a win-win. I think it is a good deal.”
