The 23-year-old winger has only featured as an impact sub so far for Steve Bruce’s side, however he’s being tipped to start against Swansea this weekend after impressing off the bench and scoring in their U-23’s win over Sheffield United last night (watch the goal below at 0:35 seconds in):
He’s had spells with Serie A strugglers Verona and Czech side Slovan Liberec over the past few seasons, but to say both were unimpressive is an understatement, with him struggling to play regularly and failing to register a single goal or assist during both stints.
Here’s what he’s had to say after both he and fellow NUFC outcast Achraf Lazaar completed deadline day loan moves to Hillsborough:
“It’s a very important loan. I look at every game the same. I want to do my best. I want to make assists, take players on & score goals.
“I look at every game as important & being here at Sheffield Wednesday is an opportunity to show everyone in England what I can do.”
His loan spells in Italy and the Czech Republic have done him no favours recently, so this really is his last chance to impress Rafa – and, perhaps more importantly for him, a chance to impress a club that could take him on permanently and give him a much needed new home if he does well.
