Stuart Gray says the door has not been closed on Giles Coke’s future at Hillsborough.
The midfielder this week joined Bolton Wanderers on loan for the rest of the season.
Coke’s contract with the Owls expires in the summer but Gray insists he is yet to discuss the 28-year-old’s future.
“We just felt Giles needed games,” Gray said,
“He’s been in the treatment room for a fair while with an achilles injury.
“He’s been back training but he needed to go out. We haven’t had enough U21 games recently.
“I’ve got cover in midfield so his opportunities have been limited.
“We have a 24 hour recall after the first 28 days so we’ll see.”
The Owls will be without Jose Semedo and Kamil Zayatte for today’s trip to Blackpool.
Full diagnoses on the injuries both men suffered in the defeat to Blackburn are still pending.
Dejan Kelhar has returned to full training and Gray has been pleased with his progress.
He said: “He’s worked his socks off to get back to where he is. The medical staff are delighted.
“With Glenn Loovens and now Kamil Zayatte being injured, that might give him a little spur as well.
“But we’ve got to make sure when he comes back, he stays back.
Striker Sergiu Bus has yet to resume training after suffering a groin injury last month.
