League One welcomes a promising starlet for the imminent campaign in Theo Corbeanu after the 19-year-old forward penned a loan deal spanning one season with Sheffield Wednesday.
Wolverhampton Wanderers – the players parent club – hold the teenager in high esteem but felt the scope for regular play time was definitive in aiding his development.
Corbeanu stands as Wednesday’s eighth acquisition of the summer after a tumultuous year where the club served a six-point deduction after breaching financial fair play regulations, resulting in relegation from the second division.
After making his debut for Wolves in May as a substitute against Tottenham Hotspur, Corbeanu has linked up with the Canadian national team to participate in the continental Gold Cup tournament.
Due to his international involvement, Corbeanu has not yet returned to the Midlands after the previous season concluded and he will not return to his parent club upon returning to England later this month.
VAVEL also understand that talented 20-year-old midfielder Taylor Perry is available for a loan deal after Wolves decided that his progress would be best served at a more suitable level for the forthcoming year of football.
How can he deliver?
The Canadian talent has received plaudits for his power, pace, and guile – notably from recently departed Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo - and has been touted for a successful career.
After an exemplary season playing for the second team Corbeanu will now hope to replicate his previous endeavours and initiate a breakout year and achieve promotion with the Owls.
Additionally, the Canadian has recently made an emphatic entrance to the international stage at the Gold Cup, scoring in a thumping 4-1 group stage victory over Martinique.
The goal was his second for country in just six appearances; a commendable birth to international football and one which bodes well for his career.
Wednesday have been heavily active in the current transfer market after their detrimental 20/21 term and will boast a wealth of fresh talent to mount a challenge towards promotion at the first return.
Corbeanu’s technical ability and dogged determination have been noted for some time and Wolves head of academy Scott Sellars signed the prospect three years ago after a recommendation from an agent.
After quickly establishing himself as one of the clubs most intriguing youth players Corbeanu began regularly training with the first team.
Should Corbeanu leave Wednesday with a triumphant breakout season in the bag, he is sure to catch the eye of Lage and potentially earn as role in an exciting new system for Wolves.
