Sheffield Wednesday boss gives fitness update on new signing Sergiu Bus

Romania

Sheffield Wednesday boss Stuart Gray says striker Sergiu Bus isn't far away from a return.

It's more than a month since Sergiu Bus signed for Sheffield Wednesday, but fans are still waiting to see the best of him.

The Romanian striker has been sidelined with injury in recent weeks, and has only played twice for the club.

A return is not far away however, after manager Stuart Gray confirmed in an interview to BBC Radio Sheffield that the 22-year-old is closing in on recovering to full fitness.

He said: "Bus is training with the fitness coach, so the treatment room is getting empty. Tuesday is too soon."

Sheffield Wednesday have fixtures against Gulham this weekend and away to Wolves next Tuesday, but next Saturday at home to Rotherham United could well be a date for Bus to target.

Gray also confirmed Kamil Zayatte could be involved against Wolves next week, while midfielder Jose Semedo is 'out running with the medical team', and is about two to three weeks away from full fitness.

He added: "I don't want the physios being busy at this stage of the season. We need everybody."

Wednesday still have a distant chance of making the play-offs, but need to finish strong. They are in 11th place with 10 games to go, and are 13 points away from sixth place. A fully fit and firing Sergiu Bus could be the difference maker they need.
