Sheffield Wednesday target David Agbontohoma spotted at Stoke City as Owls wait

Sheffield Wednesday are thought to still be weighing up a potential move for young David Agbontohoma, however the player himself looks to be keeping his options open.

The Star reported last month that the 19-year-old had been spotted playing for the Owls’ U23s as Lee Bullen ran the rule over the former Arsenal youth defender, but it turns out they’re not his only potential suitors.

It’s believed that the teenage centre back has played a couple of games for Bullen’s U23 side as their season came to a close over the past couple of weeks, and they may well be interested in making a move for him once his Southampton deal comes to an end in just a few weeks’ time.

Agbontohoma signed a professional deal with the Saints a year ago, however is set to move on when the current season comes to an end as he eyes up opportunities elsewhere.

But while the Owls are one team considering making a move, it has since been reported that he turned out for Stoke City’s U23s this week in their 1-1 draw against Sunderland, with the Potters also in the hunt to bolster their youth ranks ahead of next season.

Wednesday announced their youth retained list this week as they let some players go and also promoted a handful of U18s into the U23s, and it’s likely that if Agobontohoma did join then it would be that age group where he’d be headed – at least at first.

The Star will keep an eye on matters to see if they progress any further.
