Sheffield Wednesday’s Eyad Hammoud named one of world’s best young talents

Sheffield Wednesday have been impressing many from afar with their performances in the Championship this season, especially considering that they could hardly add to their squad in the summer.

The Owls had were under an embargo due to Financial Fair Play regulations and only had it lifted towards the back end of August, resulting in the club being unable to sign anyone on permanent deals.

However, despite those problems, Jos Luhukay has managed to get the best out of the squad he has and they currently sit inside the playoffs and just six points behind city rivals Sheffield United at the top of the table.

One man that has not yet featured for the Owls this season, but has been starring for the Under-18s is Eyad Hammoud and his talent has not gone unnoticed.

According to a report by The Guardian, they have named the Bulgarian striker as one of the World’s Best Young Talents.

Wednesday would have liked to have kept the 17-year-old quiet, but his talent has been recognised for a while as Arsenal and Stoke City held trials for him prior to his 2017 move to the Hillsborough Stadium outfit.

The Verdict:

Sheffield Wednesday will be excited about the prospect of how Hammoud could potentially develop and will be keen to see how well he does.

However, with the report coming out, it will have caused some concern that the club could receive some unwanted interest in one of their talented youngsters.

The Owls will need to try and keep him out of the spotlight, which will be extremely difficult, whilst still trying to get the best out of the Bulgarian in his young career.
