On the potential of Rhodes returning to Yorkshire, Moore said: "He is our player and one of the players out on loan and he's one of the ones out there playing regular football.

"Our professional approach is he's playing and doing well at Blackpool and let that continue in terms of that as right now at this moment, we cannot do anything about it and have nine or ten games to navigate.

"We are closely monitoring all our loan players. Foxy (David Fox) - has really got his finger on the pulse with that one. We get detailed reports every single week in terms of how our loan players are doing.
