This Premier League man is the perfect Hunt replacement at Sheffield Wednesday

Published

Sheffield Wednesday know they need to sell to buy this summer and have been actively trying to get rid of some of their fringe players.

Although not many have yet departed, one player that has exited Hillsborough this summer is Jack Hunt.

This leaves Sheffield Wednesday light in the right-back department and Jos Luhukay will undoubtedly be looking for candidates to replace Hunt – especially those with an attack-minded disposition.

His ideal signing would therefore be West Ham United’s marauding full-back Sam Byram, who is likely to be made available on loan or permanently after the Hammers signed Ryan Fredericks to rival Pablo Zabaleta in that department.

Byram is still young and has all the qualities to thrive in a new environment but his career is stalling at The London Stadium at the moment.

The 24-year-old is not getting the game time he needs to kick on but Sheffield Wednesday could offer that to him.

Before his switch to East London, Byram was a star for Leeds United in the Championship, playing as either a right-back or as a right winger.

At Championship level, Byram can beat defenders with ease, deliver quality crosses and he is tough to beat for opposition wingers too.

Although he is far from the finished product, taking Byram from West Ham would be a good project for the Owls to try out.

If they can get him back to the levels he showed at Leeds and make him even better, then they would have one of the best attacking full-backs in the division.
