Wickham, 19, who scored his first goal for the Owls in Saturday's 1-0 win at Leicester, is due to return to parent club Sunderland after making six appearances during his month-long youth loan at the club.

But Jones is keen to extend the England Under-21 international's stay at Hillsborough.

"I will sit down with the chairman, talk to Martin O'Neill up at Sunderland and see where we go from here," Jones said after his side had climbed four points clear of the relegation zone with victory at Leicester.

"He's a pleasure to work with, he wants to learn and I'm delighted for the lad that he has got his goal."

Wickham has said he is not sure where his short-term future lies, but that he had enjoyed his spell with the Owls.

Jones added: "Connor was superb in getting the goal, but they all were. They deserve all the plaudits they will get from this win."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
