Sheffield Wednesday forward Florian Kamberi missed the club’s recent clashes with Sunderland and Shrewsbury Town due to injury and opted to go to Switzerland to see a specialist regarding his issue, according to The Sheffield Star.
After making his 12th league appearance of the season during the Owls’ 0-0 draw with Portsmouth last month, Kamberi would have been hoping to make a positive impact against Crewe Alexandra.
However, the forward was forced to watch on from the bench in this particular clash as the Owls secured a 2-0 victory over their League One opponents.
Kamberi was then a notable absentee from Wednesday’s match-day squads for their meetings with Sunderland and Shrewsbury.
In the forward’s absence, the Owls were unable to build upon their triumph over Crewe as they suffered back-to-back defeats in the third-tier.
Wednesday dropped to ninth in the League One standings as a result of these recent setbacks and will now need to step up to the mark in order to close the gap between them and the play-off places in the coming weeks.
As per a report from The Sheffield Star, it is understood that Kamberi paid for surgery in a quest to find a solution to his issue and is now set to return to Hillsborough where he will continue his road to recovery.

For Wednesday’s sake, they will be hoping to call upon the services of Kamberi in the not too distant future as the forward has shown some signs of promise during his loan spell at the club.
Particularly impressive during the Owls’ victories over Sunderland and Accrington Stanley in November, the forward managed to find the back of the net in both of these fixtures as he recorded WhoScored match ratings of 8.10 and 7.28.
Providing that Kamberi is able to hit the ground running when he is fit enough to feature again for the Owls, he could potentially help the club move up the League One standings.
Kamberi’s presence may also force the likes of Lee Gregory, Callum Paterson and Saido Berahino to improve their performances for the Owls.
