With the hoard of talent available, many highly rated Manchester City youngsters are struggling to secure more than a few minutes at the Etihad this season.
Consequently, we will likely see some of England’s best young players loaned out in the Championship next season.
One such player is Tosin Adarabioyo and Sheffield Wednesday should reignite their interest in him.
The 20-year old defender started against Shaktar Donetsk in the Champions League and was frequently named on the bench in the league.
However, he is yet to make a league appearance for the Premier League champions. This will not be enough to sustain his development. So far he has yet to go out on loan, but there will be concerns that this is stunting his growth. It is notable that he has not been chosen for an England youth team since 2015.
Sheffield Wednesday were reported to be interested in the youngster at the end of the last January transfer window.
The move would make sense.
If Adarabioyo can live up to Manchester City’s expectations of him, he would be a cracking signing. He would add depth and would help shore up a defence that was too porous to allow for a play-off challenge.
The only sticking point may be his wages.
The Owls would want Manchester City to partially cover it as he is largely unproven. Nonetheless, if the clubs could come to an arrangement it would be in the interest of all parties.
