Just looked at transfermakt - info is that Dom's contract ends end of June. Surely we didn't sign him on a 6 month deal! Really puts the cat among the pigeons if we have to replace this guy so soon after thinking we got a bargain.

Here's what the BBC Reported at the time of signing

 

Sheffield Wednesday have signed Wolves defender Dominic Iorfa for an undisclosed fee and Newcastle's Rolando Aarons and Achraf Lazaar on loan.

 

The Owls have not disclosed the length of the deal that former England Under-21 international Iorfa, 23, has signed.

I think that was his contract at Wolves. I've not seen him in any of the out of contract lists on various sites and I would be shocked if either ourselves or his agent hadn't pushed for a 2 year deal minimum tbh. Most likely is a deal expiring summer 2021 in my mind, with an optional year extension by the club

Reported by the star as a 3 1/2 year deal. 

 

"I was originally going to go to another team on loan in the Championship but once I knew about Wednesday's interest I swayed more to this," said Iorfa, who has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract. "I wanted to come here after finding out about the manager's plans

He gets paid his first wages in three-and-a-half-years time at the end of his contract, thus circumventing EFL P&S rules.

Dom Howson reported this though here...

I very much doubt we've snapped him up on a 6 month deal.

 

Even by our standards, that would be bonkers.

Think the 6 months was how long he had left at Wolves. He may well be used at centre half next season if Hector leaves which would give us a ball playing centre half. He has been excellent from day one.

He's not much of a ball player though. His first touch and range of passing isn't great.

He doesn’t look like a centre half to me.

I like him but he can be a little unpredictable on the ball.

Can bring the ball out at pace which would stop us being so predictable and allowing teams to nullify us .Neither Lees or Hector have great pace or distribution and this was really exposed under Jos. SB has brought some pace in and we look far more threatening going forward.

Has got the height and pace sure the rest can be coached.

It would be like having Read Johnson at centre back. A no for me. He's doing just fine down the right with his pace and athleticism.

Cant argue he has done well there but think he has a lot more to offer once he has a preseason under SB and his coaching team. Wherever he plays he is an absolute bargain.

He's a much better footballer than Reda Johnson yes he's a goal scoring defender like Reda but that is where the similarities end.

Both not the best with the ball at their feet, both massive, both commanding and both provide a presence.

 

Iorfa is a better footballer and is quicker, but to be fair there are some similarities between the pair.

No one was a better footballer than Reda even Messi looks up to him.
