The Owls have made no secret of their desire to keep Wickham on loan for the remainder of the campaign after the 20-year-old has proved to be an overwhelming success in his second spell at Hillsborough, with eight goals in 11 games.
There has been speculation that Wickham could also be a target for a permanent move to Championship pair Nottingham Forest and Burnley, although Wednesday are the only side to have been in talks with Sunderland.
Gus Poyet: “I’m going to talk with him next week.
“I was in touch with him before when there was some of his loan to go.
“But now that his loan is going to finish next week, I need to have another conversation with him.
“Like a lot of players, he’s one where there’s been 150,000 rumours about him.
“But in reality, he’s our player and he’s been on loan at Sheffield Wednesday. Nothing more. The rest is all rumours.”
