Wolves transfer news: Theo Corbeanu in talks with Sheffield Wednesday

Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Theo Corbeanu has now officially completed a loan move to Sheffield Wednesday.

The Owls had shown interest in the Canada international, who made his Wolves first-team debut at the end of last season.

Corbeanu enjoyed a really good season with the U23s last term.

He regularly impressed for James Collins’ side, and was called up for several first-team matchday squads by Nuno Espirito Santo throughout 2020/21.

He eventually appeared off the bench for the first time against Tottenham Hotspur in May for around 10 minutes or so.

He would then suffer an injury with the U23s. That meant he could not get any minutes in Wolves’ last two games against Everton and Manchester United.

This summer, Corbeanu has represented Canada at the Gold Cup.

They made it to the semi-finals, with Corbeanu making three appearances along the way and scoring one goal against Martinique.

Sheffield Wednesday loan move is good for Corbeanu

It is probably the best play for Wolves to have sent Corbeanu out on loan.

As talented as he is, it’s probably smart for him to go and experience English football at a lower level and build himself up.

On his debut against Spurs he was roughed up a bit. A stint in League One will likely do him a lot of good.

His cameo prompted Nuno to call on the youngster to ‘become stronger’ (via Express & Star).

At the moment, Wolves have good options in the forward areas and have just brought in Francisco Trincao, so minutes would likely be very scarce for Corbeanu.
