Sheffield Wednesday are enduring a somewhat sticky spell in the league, with the Owls drawing their last four games.
There are a number of players that Carlos Carvalhal simply isn’t utilising for one reason or another, and there will be Wednesday players who’ll be keen to move away next month.
Which Sheffield Wednesday outcast should be begging for a loan switch in January?
It has to be George Hirst.
It is clear the youngster is leaving the club having seen contract talks break down, so he may as well get out of Hillsborough now and start playing regular first team football.
Whether that is with the club that wishes to sign him or another side, his best option is to leave Wednesday in January.
The big forward has been in and out of the squad in recent weeks, but Fernando Forestieri will be back by January, so Joao’s chances of playing are basically non-existent then.
He had a loan spell at Blackburn this time last year and he will need another one to get the regular football that he’s surely craving.
Abdi doesn’t look remotely close to getting into the side on a regular basis.
He really does need to escape, and I think even a drop to League One could be in order.
The striker’s contract is up in the summer, but with very little football under his belt over the last 18 months, you wonder who would take him permanently.
Nuhiu’s opportunities at Hillsborough look like they will remain limited, and he should be pushing Sheffield Wednesday for a loan move in January, in a bid to put himself in the shop window, for when he almost certainly becomes a free agent in summer.
