“His injury has has settled down and it’s going to be more weeks for him, probably longer.

“He’s still here and getting the treatment to get back to where we feel he needs to be. We’re very hopeful that he’ll be back towards the end of the season but wanted to make sure he was still a part of it.

“He has a part to play when he can get fit.”

Shodipo was one of the stars of Wednesday’s preseason programme but ran into injury just 34 minutes into his competitive debut, a curtain-raising League Cup match-up with Huddersfield Town back in August.

His comeback arrived after six weeks and he showed signs of his fulfilling his potential at Hillsborough before his most recent issue.

Moore had admitted throughout January that conversations were being had over the potential departure of both Shodipo and Everton youngster Lewis Gibson, who is back at S6 on the comeback trail from his own injury issues.
