New Sheffield Wednesday manager Tony Pulis has suggested that Callum Paterson could be set for another change of position at the club.
Paterson only joined Wednesday from Championship rivals Cardiff City in the summer transfer window, and has being playing as a striker for the Owls, scoring once in eight appearances.
Prior to his move to Hillsborough, Paterson had been used in a more of a midfield role by Cardiff, and also played right-back before that when he started his career with Hearts.
Now it seems as though Pulis is considering the prospect of rotating the 26-year-old’s position on the pitch once more.
Responding to a question about whether Paterson could be the Wednesday player best suited as an attacker in one of Pulis’ teams due to his physicality, the new Owls boss told The Sheffield Star: “People think Paterson is a forward but I’m not so sure that he is the forward that everyone thought he was going to be.
“But he’s playing for Scotland and they’ve just qualified so he’s certainly a good player.”
Indeed, it seems Pulis could be set for a period of experimentation for Paterson, although it appears he will be going into that with an open mind, as he added: “It’s about finding out what he’s about and what his best position is.
“For a person outside the football club, it’s easy for me to say things but when you get in sometimes, you get a different feel for it.”
