Sheffield Wednesday are ready to welcome back Keiren Westwood, Glenn Loovens and Sam Hutchinson from injury reports The Yorkshire Post.

Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has confirmed they’re all back in training – and could be in contention for the away trip to Burnley.

Number one keeper Keiren Westwood has been out since August 15 when he suffered a bruised kidney in the second half away at Ipswich, resulting in him being replaced by Joe Wildsmith.

Sam Hutchinson was forced off in the home fixture against Middlesbrough on August 29, while captain Glenn Loovens has been out since being taken off in their draw against Reading 10 days earlier.

Carvalhal is looking for the Owls’ first league win since the opening day and said: “Keiren is good today. He felt a little thing, but we hope it’s nothing special. But he is training at 100 percent.”

He is upbeat about his chances of including the Republic of Ireland international in his starting line-up, he added: “If this little thing that he felt today is nothing serious or not important, he will be ready to add to the team”.

He went on to confirm the only player that is definitely sidelined for the trip to Burnley is defensive midfielder Filipe Melo. He said: “At the moment, we have a lot of solutions, which is good. And all the players, apart from Melo, are ready”.

Owls’ latest recruits Fernando Forestieri, Barry Bannan and Michael Turner are all available for the trip and come into Carvalhal’s thoughts.
