Sky Bet Championship club Sheffield Wednesday could look to recall young winger Jack Stobbs from his season-long loan spell at Sky Bet League Two club Port Vale according to the Sheffield Star.

The 20-year-old Leeds born wideman is highly rated by The Owls and was sent to Vale Park to gain some first team playing experience in a competitive environment.

Stobbs has made just eight appearances in all competitions for Vale this season and it has been reported that parent club Wednesday could opt to recall the youngster after being left disappointed with the lack of game time being offered to the player by Port Vale.

The winger has come through the academy system at Hillsborough and Stobbs has gone on to be given two first team outings for Wednesday. Stobbs has not featured for The Owls at senior level since a 2-1 defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign and Wednesday could look to loan the player out again if he returns early from his spell at Vale Park.

Port Vale appointed fans’ favourite Neil Aspin as their new manager at the beginning of October and Stobbs has appeared just three times for The Valiants under the club’s new boss. It should be noted that Vale have won two of those three matches.
