Sheffield Wednesday have recently completed a deal to sign winger Manuel Hidalgo for an undisclosed fee from Italian side Torino.
The 20-year-old had previously been on the books with Portuguese giants Benfica, but has made the permanent move to Hillsborough after a successful trial period with the club.
It is believed that Hidalgo will link up with the Sheffield Wednesday under 23’s side for the foreseeable future, although he has expressed his eagerness to break into Garry Monk’s first team in the future.
“I want to play first for the Under-23s but my main goal is to play for the first team.”
Monk’s side are currently sat sixth in the Championship table, and will be hoping that they can cement their place inside the top-six as the season progresses this term.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on Hidalgo’s arrival at Hillsborough on Wednesday.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….

Looking at the videos of this lad – he is some player. Much like Forestieri – good on the ball, tricky, and has a real eye for a pass. Could be a cracking signing at 20 yrs old

The new Forestieri?
