As per a Football League World exclusive from the weekend, Wolves defender Lewis Richards is currently being assessed by the Owls.
Spending last season on loan at Harrogate Town, the Sulphurites are interested in a return for the versatile defender, with any deal for the 20-year-old believed to be a loan move.
Speaking to FLW about the club’s interest in Richards and what the young defender would offer, Carlton Palmer said: “He’s very highly rated. A left footer who can play (as a) left-sided centre-back, left back, left-wing-back.
Quiz: Can you name which club these 27 ex-Sheffield Wednesday players are playing for now?
“So it gives Darren (Moore) options because Darren changed from three centre backs to a flat back four at times last season.”
Showing excellent promise at Harrogate, and through the various stages of the academy at the Premier League club, it is no shock to see interest accumulating in the young defender.
As Palmer says, Richards’ ability to operate in several different roles could prove handy to Moore’s side, whilst he offers a more youthful option in what is an experienced squad.
It remains to be seen what Wolves perceive the next step to be, and whether they can see Richards playing regularly at the top-end of League One.
If not, then a lower League One move could be desired by Wolves, with Richards showing enough to suggest that the next move may be in League One.
