Summer signing Korede Adedoyin has added his name to Sheffield Wednesday’s extensive injury list.
Adedoyin arrived at Hillsborough, via a trial spell, after his Everton contract expired at the end of last season.
Registration and suspension issues delayed the Nigeria-born player’s early progress, but a goal for the Under-23s against Bristol City last month suggested that things were finally looking up.
But posting on Twitter on Thursday evening, Adedoyin announced that he has suffered a new setback.
Asked on Instagram how long he is likely to be out for, the prolific former Everton youth-team player replied: “Couple (of) weeks”.
Adedoyin has yet to make any of Wednesday’s senior matchday squads this season.
But with Championship bench numbers extended from seven to nine last week and the Owls missing both Jack Marriott (injured) and Josh Windass (suspsended), he may have been close to a call up had he been fit.
Speaking at his press conference earlier on Friday, Wednesday’s new manager Tony Pulis bemoaned his sides’s lack of ‘pace and power’ in attack.
As well as Adedoyin, Marriott and Windass, Pulis is also without defenders Dominic Iorfa, Chey Dunkley and Aden Flint.
