Sheffield Wednesday host Wolves tomorrow but one man they are unlikely to come up against is Ben Marshall.
The midfielder was a positive for the Black Country club last season however he has failed to make much of an impact under Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Portuguese manager doesn’t see Marshall as a wing-back and he isn’t good enough to dislodge any of the attacking trio that have shone in the Championship so far.
With that in mind, a move away from Molineux looks very possible in January and the Owls have once again been linked with the ex-Blackburn man.
But, would he be a good signing? We take a look…
Marshall is a great player simply pushed out of the team by sensational players, and there is no shame in being sidelined for them likes of Diogo Jota and Helder Costa.
Santo has his own men and although Marshall will be disappointed, he will accept that it is time to move on.
He could be fantastic for Carvalhal’s side.
Marshall is a steady Championship player, who has suffered from Nuno’s ‘revolution’ at Molineux.
For Wednesday, he would be a good addition to the squad, but again, you doubt whether Marshall is what is really needed in January.
Carvalhal’s squad is lacking players who get supporters on their feet and excited, and January needs to be the month when Wednesday bring that type of player to Hillsborough.
Do they need him?
Wednesday need width, that’s for sure, but Marshall isn’t a winger that gets chalk on his boots, he’s more of a wide midfielder.
I think he’d be a decent signing but perhaps not exactly what the Owls need.
