‘This is what we need’, ‘Gets me interested’ – Many Sheffield Wednesday fans react as summer target emerges

Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly keen on signing teenage Southampton defender David Agbontohoma after a positive trial at the club, which has drawn an interesting reaction from many Owls fans. 

Wednesday have been relegated to League One after their 3-3 final day draw with Derby County meant they finished the season bottom of the Championship.

With a significant number of senior players out of contract ahead of next season, there looks likely to be a lot of squad turnover in the summer.

That looks set to be reflected at youth level after Wednesday confirmed their academy retained list today but it seems they’re wasting no time assessing who could come in.

According to Yorkshire Live, the Owls are keen to snap up Agbontohoma when his Southampton contract expires in the summer.

The 19-year-old centre-back has been on trial at the Yorkshire club this season, featuring twice for the U23s, and seems to have impressed.

Wednesday are still under a transfer embargo, however, and that could allow Stoke City to strike as they appear to be assessing Agbontohoma at the moment and played him against Sunderland U23s earlier this week.

Did these 18 players make more than 100 Sheffield Wednesday appearances?
