Korede Adedoyin has been with Wednesday for some time now after he was asked to spend some time training with the club’s U23s, and after impressing with the youngsters, he’s now stepped up into Garry Monk’s first team setup.

‘Cody’, who is still just 19, is a free agent after leaving Everton at the end of last season, and The Star has previously reported that talks recently got underway with regards to him making a move to SWFC for the season ahead.

Now, following some good performances alongside his peers, it would appear that Monk wants to have a closer look at him, with the talented teenager being spotted in pictures posted on social media this week.

The Star understands that Adedoyin has started training with the seniors while contract talks remain ongoing, though it is thought that the player and the club are keen for a move to happen as he seeks the next step in his young career.

While it is thought that Adedoyin may predominantly be seen as an U23 player at first, with Monk chasing a younger, more dynamic Wednesday squad going forward – plus the fact that he’s already been around the Owls senior team – he’ll be hoping that he can follow in the footsteps of Fisayo Dele-Bashiru by stepping out of the Premier League and into first team football in the Championship.
