Theo Corbeanu has left Wolves on loan to join Sheffield Wednesday for the season.
The Owls confirmed the move earlier in the week as they gear up for the start of the League One season this weekend.
Corbeanu will compete for a spot on the wing in Darren Moore’s starting 11.
The move is a good opportunity for the Canadian, who at 19, is not currently in Bruno Lage’s first team plans.
Wolves have a host of wide options when everyone is fit, although Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence are currently out.
The issue for Corbeanu was that another season in development football would have done little for him.
He is a full international with Canada and missed pre-season to play at the Gold Cup.
He needs to be playing regularly and Wednesday boss Moore is pleased to have the deal done.
Looks like a good loan deal
“We’re really pleased to have Theo,” Moore told The Sheffield Star. “He’s a different type of attacking player and I’m really pleased to have him in. “We wanted him in for the early part of the summer.
“But obviously he had to go away with the Gold Cup, so we knew we had to be patient and wait for him. We’re really pleased, he gives us wonderful balance.
“He’s someone that can go either way off either foot, which will give defenders problems, he’s just as happy turning them outside as he is inside.
“He’s a young, up-and-coming player and we should be delighted to have him here. We did have competition in the league we’re in now. I just want to get him settled and integrated and let that talent flourish.”
Corbeanu needs to be tested more and this move will provide him with that. He’ll have to impress at a big club who are looking to bounce back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
That brings its own pressure but Corbeanu has the talent to cope. This could be an important season for him.
