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."

irst Townsend, now Chiles. What next ITV? Comedy that you can actually watch without vomiting up your own spleen? I'll be sad to see Matt Smith go though. I actually quite like him. Plus, he was good in Doctor Who.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
