Sheffield Wednesday manager Dave Jones stopped short of ruling out a possible loan move for striker Gary Madine.

Jones was asked about speculation linking Madine with a loan move to Swindon following Friday night's 3-1 defeat at Middlesbrough, in which the 22-year-old scored his second goal of the season after being recalled to the side.

"I'll probably find out on Twitter, or on the message boards, everybody seems to know what's going on," said Jones. "Gary played (on Friday night). Everybody's always speculating about something in football.

"I'll have to get on Twitter because there seems to be so much information given out. Maybe someone should get on Twitter and tell the players 'put your foot through it, clear your lines'."

Jones has made no secret of his desire to add more firepower to his squad in recent weeks, but needs to send out one of his current strikers on loan before drafting a new player in.

Jones added: "There's a still a feelgood factor around the place and a lot of optimism, and while there's optimism there's hope. If we can keep going, keep being brave then we'll be ok."
