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."
