Korede Adedoyin – An update on Sheffield Wednesday’s missing man
Young Korede Adedoyin’s first season at Sheffield Wednesday has not quite gone to plan, but he’s working hard to get back amongst things.
The attacker, who turned 20 not long ago, looked to be making a steady start at Hillsborough as he spent plenty of time with the first team following his move in September, however it’s been a while since he was seen on the field.
Adedoyin almost made his senior debut not long after joining SWFC as Garry Monk hoped to use him in the Carabao Cup, however paperwork issues meant that it wasn’t possible at the time.
He went on to get his first goal for Lee Bullen’s side as they beat Bristol City in November, but was then dealt a serious blow to his ambitions for the season.
The Star understands that Adedoyin picked up a serious hamstring injury in training earlier this year, an injury that ultimately required surgery for the Nigerian forward.
It remains to be seen exactly how long the former Everton academy man will face on the sidelines, but with just over a month left of the current U23s campaign it’s unlikely that he’ll be able to get playing again for the season comes to an end.
Adedoyin signed a deal at Hillsborough in September that will see him through until 2022, and Darren Moore will no doubt be keen to see him in action when the time comes for him to make a return.
Bullen’s side face Sheffield United tomorrow, with trialist, Ravel Morrison, possibly taking part as Moore takes a closer look at him.
