Sheffield Wednesday’s trialist turns it on as Owls eye ex-Everton starlet

Sheffield Wednesday are having a closer look at former Everton talent, Korede Adedoyin, who is said to have impressed since joining the Owls for a trial period.

The Star reported earlier this week that the 19-year-old, who has an impressive goalscoring record at U18 level, had managed to make it onto the club’s radar, and it’s now thought that he’s begun a trial period in South Yorkshire.

While there is other interest in the Nigerian-born attacker, it appears that Wednesday have managed to get him through the door first, and it is believed that he grabbed a couple of goals in an impressive personal showing as Wednesdays’ U23s went down 6-2 to Barnsley this week.

The U23s will be looking to bolster their ranks after seeing a number of players step up into the first team – most recently Manuel Hidalgo and Charles Hagan – and Adedoyin could well be seen as one for the future as SWFC shift their focus to a younger profile of player.

Wednesday have already snapped up Fisayo Dele-Bashiru from Manchester City and Chey Dunkley from Wigan Athletic, while they’re said to be closing in on the signature of Chelsea midfielder, Izzy Brown, on loan.

It remains to be seen whether Adedoyin will join the list of new faces at the club going into the 2020/21 season, but he certainly seems to have left a good first impression on the youth coaches at Middlewood Road.
