Korede Adedoyin – What’s happening with Sheffield Wednesday’s ambitious young attacker?

Adedoyin joined the Owls after leaving Everton at the end of last season, and was almost thrown straight into the first team by Garry Monk in the Carabao Cup – however some documentation issues meant that wasn’t possible.

The Star is led to believe that hamstring injury that he picked up training earlier this year is now behind him though, and he is back to full fitness and raring to go in the build-up to what could prove to be a pivotal campaign in his career.

Wednesday manager, Darren Moore, has made no secret of the fact that the club’s youngsters will get a chance to impress, and it’s thought that Adedoyin is set to be part of the first team setup when preseason begins later this month – and he’ll be looking to show the Owls boss what he’s capable of.

Moore doesn’t have a massive squad at this point in time, and with off-the-field issues involving wages seemingly making life quite difficult in terms of incomings, Adedoyin has the chance to stake his claim for a squad berth in League One.

The Nigerian attacker signed a two-year deal with Wednesday back in September.
