Dominic Iorfa appears to back in training with Sheffield Wednesday.
Iorfa his missed the Owls’ last two games with a leg-based muscular injury.
And the new Wednesday manager Tony Pulis has expressed a desire to have the 25-year-old back in contention.
“Dominic is getting closer and we’re going to have to see over the next seven days,” Pulis said, via the Owls’ official Youtube channel.
“I’m desperate for him to play, I’m desperate for (Josh) Windass to be in the team, (Chey) Dunkley, Iorfa. We’re not going to get (Aden) Flint and (Jack) Marriott back for a long time. I’m desperate to get them all fit.”
Speaking earlier in the week, the Welshman revealed that Iorfa was “back on the grass” after he had failed to appear in any of the Wednesday’s recent training ground footage.
And the 2019 signing from Wolverhampton Wanderers can be seen with his teammates in the latest video shared by the Owls’ media team.
With Iorfa, Flint and Dunkley all missing, Pulis has had only Tom Lees, Julian Borner and Joost van Aken to choose from at centre-half.
Van Aken has began each of the 62-year-old’s first two games in charge at left-back, a position in which Wednesday are currently without a specialist option.
