Wigan Athletic interested in potential swoop for former Sheffield Wednesday player



Wigan Athletic are eyeing up a potential move for former Sheffield Wednesday prospect Luke Hall as they search for more additions to their squad before the window closes, according to The Sun on Sunday (15/08/2021, p63).

Hall was allowed to leave Sheffield Wednesday at the end of his deal this summer after failing to break into the Owls’ first-team squad during his time at Hillsborough.

The 18-year-old has been the radar of newly-promoted Premier League side Brentford following his release from Sheffield Wednesday.

The Bees decided to take the midfielder on trial as they weighed up whether to offer him a potential deal but in the end, they opted against giving him a contract and that means he is still available on a free transfer.

Quiz: Do you remember which player scored Wigan Athletic’s first goal in each of the last 15 seasons?

The midfielder has plenty of potential having represented England at youth level during his time at Sheffield Wednesday. According to The Sun on Sunday (15/08/2021, p63), Wigan could be keen to offer him the chance to kick start his career with them in League One with them taking a look at him ahead of offering him a potential deal.

 The Verdict

Wigan have already made a host of promising additions to their squad during the summer transfer window and a potential move for Hall has the makings of another smart move by the Latics.

The midfielder has plenty of talent and he is a player that now needs to find a new home at a club where the chances will be given to him to come into the first-team at some stage over the next few seasons.

Wigan might well be able to offer that pathway to him and they are certainly a club that are on the up at the moment.

The 18-year-old was unable to win a contract with Brentford earlier on in the summer, but the fact that the Bees wanted to take a look at him shows the ability that he possesses. The Premier League side are not a team that gets their scouting wrong often and therefore this could be a promising player for Wigan to be adding to their options of young players.

Hall would probably not be a player that was being signed to strengthen Wigan’s first-team squad instantly, but instead being viewed as more of a player for the future you feel.
