Sheffield Wednesday head coach Stuart Gray has had positive news on the injury front with some players nearing a return to first team contention.

Speaking to the press ahead of Saturday’s very short trip away to relegation-threatened Rotherham United, Gray gave an update on the growing list of out-of-action stars and was boosted by the return to training of Kamil Zayatte.

The defender has missed the last three games after suffering a hamstring strain in the defeat to Blackburn at Hillsborough on March 4.

Will Keane could also be back in training following the international break.

The on-loan Manchester United striker suffered ankle ligament damage in the draw with Fulham at Hillsborough on Saturday, a game which also saw Gray lose right back Liam Palmer for the rest of the season.

Gray said of Keane: “He’s had his MRI scan. The results have not shown any major damage.

“His ankle is swollen and there is a slight ligament damage in his ankle.

“He’s not going to be fit for Saturday. Hopefully he will be back training with us after the international break.”

Romanian forward Sergiu Bus is running again and may be fit enough to play for the Owls’ development side against Charlton Athletic on Monday. Bus had picked up a groin injury in the warm-up just before Wednesday’s game against Derby late last month.

Glenn Loovens (ankle) and Jose Semedo (foot) remain a few weeks away from full training.
