Connor Wickham: Took in a short spell at Hillsborough during the 2012/13 campaig

The England U21 international took in a short spell at Hillsborough last season after slipping down the pecking order at parent club Sunderland.

There has been no indication this summer that his situation at the Stadium of Light is going to improve any time soon.

The Black Cats have already bolstered their striking ranks with the acquisition of Jozy Altidore, suggesting Wickham may struggle for game time once more.

It remains to be seen whether Paolo Di Canio would be willing to sanction another move for the 20-year-old forward.

It is widely acknowledged that the youngster needs minutes and goals to build his confidence, and Wednesday would be prepared to offer him a stage on which to showcase his talents.

Jones is, however, eager to point out that no discussions have been held with Sunderland as yet.

He told the Sheffield Star: "I'm sure their new manager will want to have a look at what Connor has got.

"It is something we would be interested in if it came around, but it is far too early to even contemplate it at the moment."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
