Sunderland recall Wickham from Owls
Sunderland have recalled striker Connor Wickham from his successful loan spell with Wednesday.
The news is a blow for the Owls, who've enjoyed an upturn in fortunes following the loan arrival of the former Ipswich Town man, who scored eight goals in eleven matches while at Hillsborough.
Black Cats boss Gus Poyet was pleased with Wickham's progress at Wednesday and the 20-year-old could either return to feature for the Premier League club or be sold in the January transfer window.
It means Stuart Gray will be without the striker for Tuesday's trip to Millwall and will have to reply on Atdhe Nuhiu, Chris Maguire and Caolan Lavery in the goals department.
Gray is understood to be keen on plugging the gap left by Wickham with a new loan recruit.
