Sheffield Wednesday forward leaves club as January transfer window looms



Tony Pulis is hoping to make a mark after being appointed as Sheffield Wednesday manager.

While results so far have been mixed, the Welshman will be putting plans in place to improve the Owls to ensure that they can compete over many years to come.

That will include a number of incomings and outgoings as the club look towards the January transfer window.

However it seems that one player is moving on ahead of schedule.

Manuel Hidalgo joined the club on a permanent basis after joining on trial from Benfica’s youth side where he was tipped to be a future star.

But after almost a year with the club the 21-year-old forward has decided to terminate his contract early in order to spend more time with his family in the aftermath of Diego Maradona’s passing.

Taking to Instagram, as quoted by the Sheffield Star, Hidalgo said: “After five years in Europe and living in three different countries, with the death of Diego Armando Maradona I realized that it was time to stop the ball a bit and go home to enjoy the really important things in life like family and friends.

“I hereby announce my termination of contract with Sheffield Wednesday with still six months to go.

“I wish this club the best in the world for his understanding, in addition to his players and his people, whom I can only thank for the support and making it clear that I do not move for the economic but for what I feel in my heart.”

The Verdict

It’s hardly been a transfer that has been successful for Sheffield Wednesday.

The Owls were hoping that they could turn Manuel Hidalgo into a star player but that simply hasn’t happened.

While it’s always disappointing to see a player moving on it’s difficult to see supporters being too disappointed by this announcements.
