Five potential loan replacements for injured Sheffield Wednesday striker Sergiu Bus

Macheda, Warnock, Pearce

The Romanian striker is out of action for up to six weeks with a groin problem.

Sheffield Wednesday scored some goals in midweek, as they conquered Millwall 3-1 in London. The Championship's strugglers when it comes to finding the net were rampant against The Lions, with Lewis McGugan, Atdhe Nuhiu and Stevie May all hitting the target.

One player who was not available was winter signing Sergiu Bus.

The Romanian injured his groin during the warm-up for the weekend tie with Derby County. According to the Sheffield Telegraph he is out for six weeks.

Wednesday could risk it and go on without bringing in a replacement, with Nuhiu, May and Will Keane as their striking options. Or they could take advantage of the loan window which remains open.

The club have had success in the past with loan moves. The likes of Ross Barkley and Connor Wickham have both come alive with the Yorkshire club.

If they decide on a loan deal, here are five potential options.

Billy Sharp

The Leeds United striker is a local lad but is not getting much game time at Elland Road at the moment. He was clearly unhappy not to make the field for the recent defeat against Brighton and is competing with four other strikers for one starting position at the club.

Yes, he is a Sheffield United man, but he needs regular football - which he is not getting for Leeds.

It could be a smart move from Leeds as well as they have strikers by the truckload. Sharp would not be able to play against them on the 25th of April but could be scoring goals against rivals to ensure the Whites' survival.

Could a Yorkshire swap be on the cards?

Yannick Sagbo

It's never quite happened for the lad since joining Hull City.

He had a loan spell at Wolves earlier this season, could Wednesday be next?

Chris Wood

The Kiwi cannot buy a game for Leicester City but is a proven Championship striker. Certainly worth a punt if Wednesday want to make a late push for the play-offs.

Adam Armstrong

The Newcastle youngster has bags of talent and like Barkley and Wickham previously, just needs playing time to showcase it.

Could Hillsborough be the venue?

Federico Macheda

The former Manchester United prodigy has not played for Cardiff since January.

The Italian has previously enjoyed a good spell in Yorkshire with Doncaster so he may be up for a return.
