Sheffield Wednesday: Fisayo Dele-Bashiru exit rumour emerges -League One News

PSV Eindhoven have emerged as potential suitors for Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, reliable journalist Joe Crann has claimed.

The Lowdown: Dele-Bashiru impressing for Owls

The 21-year-old has enjoyed an impressive season to date for the Owls, playing a key role in them sitting third in League One currently.

Dele-Bashiru has scored four goals 13 league appearances – he also has one goal and three assists in the Carabao Cup – including a double against Portsmouth on the opening weekend of the campaign.

There appears to be some interest in the Hillsborough youngster, which may come as a concern to Darren Moore and Owls supporters.

The Latest: Dele-Bashiru has interest from PSV

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, The Sheffield Star‘s Crann confirmed that Dutch giants PSV are interested in signing Dele-Bashiru.

He tweeted:

“Understand Dutch club, PSV, are the latest on Fisayo Dele-Bashiru’s list of admirers as he draws closer to the final six months of his #SWFC deal. Wednesday hoping to making significant progress this month, but key elements are still not agreed upon.”

The Verdict: Tough to keep him

While the thought of Dele-Bashiru remaining an Owls player for years to come is ideal, the reality is that they could find it hard to keep hold of him, having been described as ‘superb‘ by football talent scout Jacek Kulig during his Manchester City youth team days.

A move to Eindhoven could open the door for the 21-year-old to play Europa League football, with PSV in the knockout round play-offs of the competition, and that could be a big lure for the youngster.

His current Wednesday deal expires next summer, at which point he will be able to leave on a free transfer, should he decline an extension at Hillsborough.

The lure of joining someone of PSV’s stature could be too great for Dele-Bashiru to turn down, with promotion to the Championship arguably the one thing which could potentially keep him in Sheffield.
