Wolves teenager Theo Corbeanu is spending the season on loan with Sheffield Wednesday in League 1.

He is yet to make a league start for Darren Moore’s side and has given an interview to Yorkshire Live about his start to life at the club.

The 19-year-old was frank enough to admit he has plenty he needs to improve; and that’s the whole point of going out on loan.

“This is a good league with a lot of quality players. My game needs a lot of work but that’s what I’m here for. I’m here to improve myself,” he said.

“I realise how big this club is. I have settled in well at the club and in the city but I feel like I have got a lot more to give on the pitch. There is a lot of competition but that’s a good thing for me to experience at a young age.

 

“It is a very big move and exactly what I needed; regular first-team football. I need to make some improvements in my game. The manager has been very encouraging and positive.

“Even if I make mistakes in training, he is always telling me to get at my man constantly and cause problems because that is what I am here for.”

Youth and development football is all well and good but there comes a time when young players have to go out and fight for their place in a side which plays games that matter.

That’s what Corbeanu is trying to do now and it seems he’s determined to muscle his way into the side.

If he does establish himself, there will be pressure from the off because this is a huge season for Wednesday, a historic club who were relegated to the third tier last season.
