Wednesday boss Brian Laws is all set to give the nod for Bristol City striker Enoch Showunmi to extend his loan stay at Hillsborough for another two months.
Showunmi, out of favour at Ashton Gate, arrived at Hillsborough initially one a one-month emergency loan deal but is all set to agree to stay at Hillsborough for a further two months, the maximum time available, after impressing in the blue and white stripes.
Laws has been hampered with injuries in attack, with Akpo Sodje being ruled out for the remainder of the season, while Francis Jeffers and Leon Clarke are also sidelined through injury.
And although the Owls boss is hopeful of bringing young Chelsea starlet Ben Sahar to S6, a deal to secure Showunmi's services for a further two months will give Laws more options in attack.
City, currently hoping to secure a play-off spot at least after a fantastic season, will put a 24-hour recall clause on the striker should they need his services.
Laws told the Sheffield Star: 'We'll be looking to extend the loan though Bristol City would be able to recall him if they hit an injury crisis; we want to keep him for as long as possible.'
And he went on to say that he has been impressed with the performances of the big hitman, who won the Hillsborough faithful over in the 0-0 stalemate with Charlton Athletic last time out.
'They got more effective as the game went on; Showunmi was starting to turn and run with the ball,' he continued.
'He has good pace and strength and good feet for a big fella. He played some great crosses with his left foot when he pulled out wide; we were just a yard away from having the ball in the back of the net.
'If we can play to the strengths of Showunmi and Tudgay and get crosses into the box, we can upset anybody.'
