Striker Connor Wickham insists he has “unfinished business” with Sheffield Wednesday as he prepares for his second loan spell at Hillsborough.

The England Under-21 international has this afternoon rejoined the Owls, who are bottom of the Championship and have yet to win this season, on a temporary basis from Sunderland, a loan deal which runs until the New Year. He is set to go straight into their squad for tomorrow’s clash with Reading.

Wickham, aged 20, scored one goal in six appearances during a loan spell with Wednesday last season.

“I’m really pleased to come back to Sheffield Wednesday,” said Wickham, who came through the ranks at Ipswich Town.

“There was interest from other clubs but I feel I have unfinished business here and I can’t wait to get started again.

“I know the manager, I know the players and the place and that was a big influence in my decision.”
