Josh McEachran has been pictured for the first time among the Sheffield Wednesday squad in Portugal.
The Star reported on Friday that McEachran had flown to the Algarve, where Wednesday are based for a 10-day training camp.
The 26-year-old was one of the players released by Brentford at the end of last season, alongside Moses Odubajo.
But unlike his former teammate, whom it is understood has signed for the Owls pending the club’s transfer embargo being lifted, it is unclear if plans are afoot to offer McEachran permanent terms.
The former Chelsea prospect was, however, part of the Wednesday side to face Shrewsbury in a training match on Tuesday, albeit not in the first XI.
The following image, tweeted by Sheffield Wednesday’s official account earlier, shows McEachran sitting beside Matt Penney (top right).

McEachran was once touted as a possible successor to Frank Lampard at Chelsea, whose academy he progressed through a few years after the Owls midfielder, Sam Hutchinson.
