Tyreece John-Jules is back at Arsenal working on his recovery from injury, and he won’t be fit and available again for at least another few weeks.
Arsenal youth striker Tyreece John-Jules went out on his second loan of the season in January, joining Sheffield Wednesday.
The loan appeared to be a good option for the 21-year-old, who had previously worked with Wednesday boss Darren Moore during his loan to Doncaster Rovers. He made his debut just days after joining, but he immediately picked up an injury.
Initial reports confirmed a quad injury, expected to rule John-Jules out for at least a few weeks.
Speaking in a press conference, Moore extended that expected period of absence and added that the loanee is back with his parent club for the time being.
“Tyreece is longer-term,” Moore said. “He is early in his rehab. It will be a little while yet in terms of where he is at and whether he captures part of the end of the season.
“We’ll wait and see over the course of the next few weeks. He is back with Arsenal getting treatment.
“Both clubs are working really hard together.
“In terms of the intense treatment that he requires, we feel he is probably at the best place to get that. We are monitoring him.”
John-Jules certainly hasn’t had much luck in 2021/22 so far, only racking up 700 minutes in all competitions across his two loan spells.
If Arsenal can get him right and give him the chance to finish the season strongly in Sheffield, that would at least set him up in a positive way for the next campaign.
