A CLAUSE in Adam Proudlock's loan agreement with Sheffield Wednesday means he will not be available for the trip to his former club this weekend.

The former Wolves and Owls striker is recovering from a jarred knee and desperate to make an impression at Portman Road, but time is running out for him, as his current loan deal runs out in January.

Royle was last night in Amsterdam running the rule over a couple of players as he looks to recruit a left-back and a forward.

Along with chief scout Colin Suggett, Royle was watching Ajax reserves take on Twente Enschede's second string in De Taekomst, a small stadium near the Amsterdam Arena.

He has already taken a look at burly Danish striker Sammy Youssef and has invited others over for a trial.

Proudlock was dismissed by Sheffield Wednesday, whose manager Paul Sturrock is expected to be back at work today after spending the night in a Hull hospital following a viral complaint, but was loaned out during the appeal process.

Royle was keen to sign the striker until the end of the season and it is expected that he will be handed a new contract until June.

With Proudlock and Sam Parkin still missing the Blues might give another run out to Saturday's goal hero Danny Haynes or Billy Clarke.

The two 17-year-olds are expected to be in the squad, although Dean Bowditch is recovering well from the Achilles injury that ruled him out of the QPR match and could return.
