Sheffield Wednesday striker Josh Windass has hailed new signings Anthony Musaba and Djeidi Gassama, labelling the pair as ‘tricky wingers’.

This summer, 12 new players arrived at Sheffield Wednesday. Some seem to be more exciting signings than others though, and Musaba and Gassama certainly seem to be two of the more exciting arrivals.

Both arrived from France with the Owls paying fees for both; Musaba arrived from AS Monaco whilst Gassama came in from PSG.

The pair have made steady starts to life in England, with Musaba having perhaps started the better having scored for Wednesday in their Carabao Cup defeat v Mansfield Town earlier in the season.

But both look like solid signings for the Owls and having his say on the pair, experienced Wednesday man Windass told The Star:

“Djeidi and Musa are tricky wingers, they like to go at people. Like all the lads, they have settled well into the group.

“We get tied up in England especially that new players have to start this game, they have to do that, they have to be doing this. You have to give people time to settle in, play well and make us better.

“They have limited experience but they have a lot of talent clearly. You can see that from the clubs they’ve been at previously.”

New players bound to come good?

With so many new players having come in, there’s bound to be some that kick on more than others.

But in Musaba and Gassama, Xisco Munoz has two young players with great potential, and if he can give them enough first-team exposure this season then they’ll gain a lot of experience from that.

There’s obviously room for improvement with both and given how young either player is and how neither have experience of the English game, it’s bound to take time.

But there’s definitely reason to believe that both players can have a big future at Wednesday, like Windass suggests.

Up next for the Owls is a tricky home game against Ipswich Town this weekend, as Championship football returns.
