Sheffield Wednesday are without a win so far in the 2017/18 Championship season with their two draws and a loss placing them 20th in the table.
However, the biggest news coming out of the club is the future of their potential superstar George Hirst.
Reports from the Daily Mail have revealed that former Premier League champions Leicester City are the favourites to sign the 18-year-old.
Here at FLW, we think Wednesday would be making a very, very costly mistake by letting him go right now both on the pitch and financially.
It is no secret that if Hirst reaches the heights that many people expect him to, he won’t be staying at Sheffield Wednesday for the remainder of his playing days.
However, right now no one knows how the England u-18 player will turn out.
Owls fans everywhere will be relieved to hear that Carlos Carvalhal has insisted that the youngster is only available for a loan deal and that he won’t be going anywhere until he commits his long-term future to the club.
There are plenty of League One and Two clubs interested in the striker’s services for the season and a whole year’s worth of first team football could be exactly what the young prospect needs to tap into his potential.
The reports from the Daily Mail are suggesting that Leicester are lining up a bid of just £2 million.
What would be the point in accepting that?
Give it a few years and see what the kid can do and then you may have to put a zero after that two at an absolute minimum to get him away.
