Xisco Munoz is yet to make a final decision on what Sheffield Wednesday will do with their most talented youngsters this summer.

There are plenty of exciting youthful prospects on the verge of the Sheffield Wednesday first team, who may find that their development is aided by a loan spell away from Hillsborough stadium. However, manager Xisco Munoz has not decided their fate yet.

The likes of Ciaran Brennan, Rio Shipston, and Jay Glover are all potential loan candidates. However, with a gruelling Championship campaign ahead, Munoz may feel that they can play a part for the Owls this season.

In any case, time is beginning to run out for Munoz to make a call, and the Sheffield Wednesday youngsters will want some clarity on their futures soon.

Addressing this issue, Munoz has said, “I don’t know why we need to make this decision…They’re improving and they can train with us. But why are we speaking about the problem before it is a problem? If we sign a player then after we can decide then (if we move one on)…we can bring someone special then of course we’ll do it and then after see what the solution is. I don’t know yet which players will continue with us for the future,” as quoted by Yorkshire Live.

Despite his firm response, the level of uncertainty surrounding the situation at Sheffield Wednesday is concerning. The lack of a proper plan, with players’ level of involvement still far from decided, is a worrying state of affairs. Fans will want to see more work done in the market, and Munoz’s assurances are unconvincing.

Problems beginning to mount for Munoz

Munoz’s reign at the Yorkshire club has gotten off to a rocky start. Since taking over from Darren Moore this summer, the coach has tried to add the quality and additional strength in depth that’s required for Sheffield Wednesday to survive in the second tier, but his team still look a long way from being able to compete at Championship level.

The Owls have lost their first three matches of this season, to Southampton, Hull City, and Preston North End. Performances have been uninspiring, and Munoz may already be beginning to feel the pressure on him build.
