The summer signing has played for the first team just once since he joined from Girona when he put in an unconvincing display in the Carabao Cup loss to Ipswich.

Fellow centre-backs Craig Dawson, Max Kilman and Toti Gomes have all been ahead of Bueno in the pecking order as the 24-year-old has played the occasional under-21s game to stay fit.

O’Neil admits the player is still working to adapt to life in England and to improve his match fitness.
