Sheffield Wednesday have been knocking on the Premier League’s door for the past two seasons but failure in the play-off campaigns have seen them miss out.
But a new season brings new optimism to the Wednesday faithful who will be desperately hoping that this year will be their year to earn a place in the big league.
So far, Carlos Carvalhal has only added one player in the form of George Boyd but he will certainly not be looking to draw a line there as more reinforcements may be needed if promotion is to happen.
One man who I think the Owls should definitely consider bringing to Hillsborough is Manchester City starlet Phil Foden.
You might be thinking, who? But in a matter of years this boy could be tearing the Premier League apart if his pre-season performance against Manchester United is anything to go by.
The central midfielder, who is just 17 years of age, run the likes of Paul Pogba ragged as the Stockport-born player showed his promise.
Foden has been with City since Under-9 level and has worked his way up ever since to get to this point.
Last season he was even named in a Champions League matchday squad when City faced Celtic last December.
The City website describe him as a left-footed playmaker who has a real eye for a pass and the ability to glide through players, something which became evident in City’s 2-0 defeat to Manchester United on Thursday evening.
He would be a brilliant addition to the Wednesday squad, with the mix of experience and youth hopefully being the ingredient which could earn the Owls promotion.
