The 19-year-old winger, who can also play at right-back, is highly thought of at Hillsborough and spent the final months of last season on loan at Evo-Stik Northern Premier League outfit Gainsborough Trinity.

Hughes finished as Wednesday’s Under-18s top goalscorer in 2016/17 and signed his first professional contract with the Owls in May 2018.
