Premier League duo Crystal Palace and Leicester City are reportedly interested in signing Sheffield Wednesday youngster Charles Hagan.
The Lowdown: Hagan makes Sheff Wed debut
Having impressed in the Owls’ academy, Hagan made his first-team debut in the Carabao Cup defeat to Fulham back in September, featuring for eight minutes.
The 19-year-old was unable to force his way into Wednesday’s team from that point on, as Darren Moore’s side suffered relegation to League One.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
The Latest: Youngster linked with exit
It could be that Hagan is already on his way out of Hillsborough, with the Sheffield Star claiming both Palace and Leicester are eyeing up a move for him.
Charlton Athletic, Stoke City and Brentford are also believed to be keeping tabs on the forward, whose current deal expires at the end of this month.
The Verdict: Potential blow for Owls
It is important that Wednesday do their best to keep hold of their best young talent, allowing more seasoned out-of-contract players to leave instead this summer.
Hagan may not be the finished the article, but he is someone who could shine in League One – the fact that top flight sides are vying for his signature tells you exactly how much potential he has.
To lose him at such a young age would be an undoubted blow for the Owls, at a time when the club really could do with some positive news.
