Sheffield Wednesday extended their current unbeaten run in League One to six games on Tuesday as they secured a 3-0 victory over Sunderland at Hillsborough.
One of the stand-out performers for the Owls in this clash was Theo Corbeanu.
With the Owls looking to build upon this result in their upcoming clashes, it will be intriguing to see whether they are able to push on in League One with Corbeanu in their side.
Here, we have decided to take a look at what the future holds for Corbeanu at Wednesday…
Since joining the Owls on a season-long loan deal for Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer transfer window, Corbeanu has been forced to wait for a chance to prove his worth for his new side.
However, following five cameo appearances in League One, the forward was finally handed the opportunity to showcase his talent earlier this week.
Corbeanu went on to produce a WhoScored match rating of 9.27 in the club’s clash with Sunderland as he managed to demonstrate that he is more than capable of thriving at this level.

Looking ahead to the future, Corbeanu’s main goal will be to establish himself as a key player for Wednesday as the club look to launch a push for promotion.
Providing that he is able to maintain his consistency at this level, the Canadian could make considerable strides in terms of his development before returning to Molineux next summer.
If Owls manager Darren Moore is willing to play Corbeanu on a regular basis, Wolves will allow the forward to stay at Hillsborough and thus turn down the opportunity to recall him in January.
Wednesday may eventually opt to submit a bid for the forward if he is able to deliver the goods during the remainder of the 2021/22 campaign.
Whilst Corbeanu will be keen to prove himself in the Premier League for Wolves in the coming seasons, a permanent move to a team like Wednesday who are currently in a lower division could be exactly what he needs at this stage of his career as he may struggle to force his way into Bruno Lage’s side.
