Reporter Dom Howson has recently discussed Sheffield Wednesday’s potential interest in signing Leeds United youngster Sam Greenwood.
Greenwood, currently only 18, has been linked with a move to the Championship – even though Marcelo Bielsa seems to rate him as a player. It has been reported that Cardiff City could be well-placed to sign the youngster, but he has also been linked with a move to either Bournemouth or Sheffield Wednesday.
Should Greenwood get loaned out to Sheffield Wednesday?
Greenwood to SWFC could be ‘agent talk’
Howson was recently involved in a Q&A session with Sheffield Wednesday fans and one question that was posed to him involved the club’s potential interest in Greenwood. The journalist replied that while he is still digging into the news, it could just be ‘agent talk’ about the Leeds youngster.
He also said that Wednesday are keeping an eye on the loan market for players that they could sign on a temporary basis in January and he can see Tony Pulis looking to sign a striker too.
Here’s what he had to say in full:
“I am still doing some digging into this. It could just be agent talk. But I do Wednesday are keeping a close eye on players who could be available for loan in the Premier League come January. I can see Pulis trying to sign a big, physical, aggressive centre-forward. They have lacked a focal point up front since Steven Fletcher and Atdhe Nuhiu moved on.”
It has also been reported that the Whites’ youngster has caught the eye of multiple scouts and multiple Championship outfits believe that he can make an impact in the division.
Greenwood form might warrant a loan
For the Leeds United Under-23s side this season, Greenwood has been in very good form so far. The young striker has scored six goals in eight Premier League Two appearances in the current campaign and that includes a hat-trick against the Sunderland Under-23s side (as per Transfermarkt).
In the Under-18s Premier League last season, the youngster had scored three times in 11 appearances, while picking up one assist. He had also found the back of the net twice in four FA Youth Cup games (as per Transfermarkt).
His form is indicative of the fact that he might just deserve some first-team football and if Leeds can’t offer that, they should let him continue his development by loaning him out. That will help him get some regular football and help him develop into a better player.
