Sheffield Wednesday defender Morgan Fox is reportedly on the radar of Wales manager Ryan Giggs ahead of a potential call-up.
Fox has undergone a revival of late under new Wednesday manager Garry Monk, so much so that his performances at left-back have impressed Wales’ manager Ryan Giggs ahead of the international break.
Fox has started in all four of Wednesday’s previous games and has turned heads in doing so, enough to earn the Player of the Month award for the club in October. Fox has been part of the defence that has conceded the second least goals in the division with 13 after 15 games.
Since Monk’s appointment, Wednesday have kept four clean sheets and conceded six goals in nine games, which is a formidable record after just taking over.
Fox was a standout performer in Wednesday’s last clean sheet with a solid 90 minutes against Leeds where his efforts snuffed Helder Costa’s influence, plus a stunning goal-line block to keep the game scoreless.
His performances have not gone unnoticed this season and have led to Ryan Giggs looking to keep tabs on his current form ahead of a potential call-up in the future. Giggs currently has Ben Davies and Neil Taylor to choose from in Fox’s position but is still pondering whether to include him in the future.
This news is just more evidence that Fox has been in great form of late for the Owls and that people beyond the club are paying attention to him. His form has been in no small part down to the team’s good form as a whole though, with a strong focus on being resolute and clean sheets being a necessity.
Fox will be focusing on his club performances in the meantime, hoping that his form can continue to gain positive recognition and hopefully end up with a call-up to the next Wales squad.
