OFFICIAL - NEW SIGNING SIGNS FOR SWFC


Recommended Posts

Jayden Onen has joined Sheffield Wednesday after a successful trial spell.

 

The attacking midfielder has spent time this season training with the Owls and has featured on one occasion for Lee Bullen’s Under-23s.

 

During our 23s’ 1-1 draw with Coventry back in September, Onen registered an assist for Basile Zottos’ first half strike.

 

The 20-year-old began his early academy years with the likes of Arsenal, Crystal Palace and Brighton before joining Brentford B.

 

During his two years with the Bees from 2018 to 2020, Onen had a short loan spell with National League side Bromley in 2019.

The young forward spent last season with Championship side Reading and made two appearances for the Royals.

 

Onen will link up with our Under-23 squad, who face Hull City at Stocksbridge on Wednesday (12 noon k/o).

 

He told swfc.co.uk: “I’m delighted to get it all signed and sorted and my main focus is to get as fit as I can.

 

“I got a little taste of first team football last season with Reading and made my debut against Norwich - it’s made me hungry for more. I know what I need to do and where I want to be.

 

“I had a good week training here, spent time with the first team and the lads were very welcoming and now I just want to push on.

 

“I played in the game at Coventry and I thought we played really well that day, there were a lot of young lads from the club playing but they did well and now I can’t wait to get started.”

Am I being cynical, or does that raise a red flag somewhat?

 

Anyway, welcome to the madhouse young man.

A lot of clubs for a youngster. 

 

Either he doesn't have what it takes or he's after more football. 

 

I hope he kicks on and we see what he's capable of.

 

I have to say, I do like the increased focus on youth at the club. It's a welcome change from signing washed-up has beens. (Berahino excluded of course)

Yes I get the feeling he might be lying about his age like that defender that Newcastle signed

Just what we need another midfielder who will never make the first team.

 

how about we give Hunt, Waldock, Farmer, Glover, Adedoyin, Hagan etc 

 

Look where he has been seems to have got found out at premiership youth and championship youth level. I wonder if he is a Christian as looks a strange signing when you look at the players we already have in that position.

 

would rather like to see young centre backs sign.
