Owls midfield player Paul Corry is willing to go out on loan as he tries to build towards a recall to the Hillsborough first team.

The 22-year-old is back on track after a two-month lay-off with injuries.

Corry was grateful for the way a one-month spell at Tranmere last season broadened his experience.

Dave Jones recently had a dig at some of his players who had declined loan moves.

But Corry told The Star: “If a loan move is what I need again this year, all well and good.

“I’m more than willing to to go out and get some experience.

“If that’s what they want me to do and an opportunity arises, fine.”

He believes that he may have to be patient, this early in his comeback: “I’ve only got back into training recently; it’s hard for someone to come in and watch you when you’ve only had one or two weeks’ training.

“If something comes up in the short term or after Christmas and it feels good for me and good for Wednesday, it’s something I’ll look into.”

He wants more of the first-team football that he tasted last season: “I like being here. I like the lads and the training.

“If I can get into the team and benefit it, then all well and good. You just have to be patient and wait for your chance, and when it comes take advantage of it.

“You saw that last season: I made my (league) debut against Leeds and got a run in the team.”

Meanwhile, Milan Mandaric has spoken after speculation about Dave Jones, with the Owls in the bottom three,

The chairman said: “Obviously, many of my media friends start feeling trigger happy and expect me to as well. I actually believe we are a better team than we appear to be.

“But you can’t go on saying that. It’s a results game and every manager is under pressure when things aren’t working out - it’s no different here.

“You have to be careful not to act too hastily but obviously you keep looking at things very closely.

“It wouldn’t be right for me to say everything’s fine because it isn’t and my reputation as a manager is on line as much as David’s as a manager.”
