Connor Wickham: The striker made a good impression on Sheffield Wednesday boss D

The £8million man has returned to the Stadium of Light from a loan spell at Hillsborough in order to aid his parent club's shortage of strikers.

But Jones would consider the option to again work with Wickham in the 2012/13 campaign if Sunderland, who are still not safe from Premier League relegation, are interested.

Jones said in the Sunderland Echo: "If it is something we get a chance to look at again, we would certainly like to have him back.

"I've been really pleased with Connor during his loan. He was a pleasure to work with and a talented player.

"I spoke with Martin O'Neill and we really wanted Connor to stay but I fully understand that Sunderland have a striker shortage at the moment."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
