Jordan Thorniley updates Sheffield Wednesday fans on his situation after leaving Portugal training camp

Jordan Thorniley has revealed he is ‘all ok’ after leaving Sheffield Wednesday’s Portugal training camp earlier this month.

The Wednesday defender returned home just days into the Owls’ trip, with his departure initially put down to injury.

Thorniley later launched an emphatic denial of those reports, citing personal reasons, adding: ‘(W)e don’t need a (…) bug being spread about before the season has started’.

And the 22-year-old has since failed to feature in any of Sheffield Wednesday’s pre-season friendlies, against Lincoln City, Stocksbridge Park Steels, Northampton Town, VfB Lubeck and Holstein Kiel.

But asked about his well-being on Twitter earlier, Thorniley told a fan:

Thorniley will hope to feature in Sheffield Wednesday’s final warm-up game at home to RCD Espanyol on Sunday and stake his claim for a place in Lee Bullen’s 18 for the following weekend’s Championship opener at Reading.

The former Everton youngster’s absence appears to have seen him fall behind Julian Börner and Joost van Aken in Wednesday’s plans.

And the Owls could yet add to their options in Thorniley’s position.
