Wickham Could Be Staying At Sunderland

It looks like Connor Wickham has more chance of Staying with Sunderland to fight for a place in the side rather than return to Sheffield Wednesday.

The Owls were keen on getting Wickham back for the rest of the season before the loan market closed; the lad has been scoring on a frequent basis for the Yorkshire based outfit.

But Wickham says he has been told that he features in Gus Poyet's plans.
He told reporters: "I`ve spoken to the manager and he`s just said I`m in his plans and told me what I need to do.

"I`ve gone in and asked what I need to do to get into the team because I don`t want to just be sitting on the bench.

"It`s down to the manager whether I`m going to be involved in the games or not. Hopefully, if I`m not, I can go back out on loan.

"That`s yet to be decided, but I`m here now so my main focus is getting into the team."


Wickham has made 11 appearances for the Owls and scored eight goals.
