Wolves winger Theo Corbeanu’s loan at Sheffield Wednesday is not going exactly as planned.
He is yet to start a League One match for the Owls, who sit ninth in League One.
There was a report earlier this week that Wolves could recall Corbeanu in January and send him somewhere he would play more.
As per the Sheffield Star, that was put to Wednesday boss Darren Moore at his press conference ahead of their home match with Lincoln City.
“I’ve heard nothing from Wolves on [a possible recall],” he said. “(Wolves loan manager) Matt Jackson came to speak to us before the Wigan game. We illustrated and showed the work we’re doing with Theo.
“What he communicated to us was they were happy with the work we were doing with Theo at the training ground. One thing guaranteed is that whenever he returns to Wolves he’ll be a better player for it.
“He will play football for us, he will start for us. We’ve been doing some incredible work with him. Academy football and first team football is very, very different. He’s learning.
“He’s a wonderful young player with a thirst to learn and develop. From when he arrived to now, physically and mentally he’s in a far, far better place. When we feel it’s right to put him in, we’ll put him in.”
This looks to be a case which just requires patience on all sides.
Corbeanu is a teenager, enjoying his first loan spell and getting to grips with what that means on the mental and physical side.
Moore has said the Canadian will get chances and when he does, it is up to him to take them.
