Sheffield Wednesday captain Barry Bannan believes it would be foolish for loan stars like Wolves youngster Theo Corbeanu to leave the club mid-season.
The winger is currently enjoying a season-long loan spell with the Owls.
It was a bit of a slow start for the Canada international. But in recent weeks things have been going well.
He is playing with much more regularity now, starting five of the club’s last seven League One matches.
The starlet is playing in a team in fantastic form at the moment.
The Owls are currently sitting in seventh place in the table. They have not lost a game in the league since October 2.
Bannan, 32, is pleased with how things have been going. But he has insisted it’s important for their squad to remain intact going forwards.
He said: “I’d like to think that they’re enjoying themselves here, we’ve a massive following every week and we’re winning games. It would be daft for them to leave.
“You never know what happens in football, we don’t know what could be round the corner. But me, personally, speaking on behalf of the boys in there we’d like to keep the ones that we’ve got and push for winning the league.”
Luckily for Bannan and Sheffield Wednesday, there has not really been any talk of Wolves recalling Corbeanu.
But Corbeanu seemingly isn’t set to end his spell at Hillsborough early.
Theo Corbeanu shouldn’t be recalled from Sheffield Wednesday loan
It is surely very unlikely that Corbeanu will be ending his loan stint with Sheffield Wednesday early.
Firstly, Corbeanu has made just one appearance for the Wolves’ first-team. That was last season in the Premier League against Tottenham Hotspur.
It was clear he wasn’t ready, and it seems a bit of a stretch he would be ready after just half a season in League One.
The experience he is getting in the English third tier is invaluable to his development.
Secondly, Wolves don’t need to be recalling him as Bruno Lage is not short of forward options.
There is Adama Traore, Daniel Podence, Hwang Hee-chan and Francisco Trincao, and Pedro Neto is due to return around mid-January.
While the situation with the other Wednesday loanees may be different, it is surely a safe bet that Corbeanu will be staying put.
