With Xisco Munoz seeking to bolster his Sheffield Wednesday squad, the club should explore the possibility of bringing Tyreece John-Jules back to Yorkshire on loan.

Sheffield Wednesday are yet to make any signings this summer, aside from making Reece James’ stay at Hillsborough Stadium a permanent one. Munoz will be increasingly desperate to bring some new faces into the club, with the start of the new Championship season looming.

One way the Owls can swell their ranks is by turning to the loan market. There will be plenty of Premier League youngsters ready to make a temporary switch to the second tier in order to get some regular game time. Arsenal’s Tyreece John-Jules may well be amongst these options.

John-Jules has featured for Wednesday before, joining on loan in January 2022. However, on that occasion he was only able to make a single appearance for the club as fitness issues hampered his progress. Former Baggies boss Darren Moore has praised the player, though, saying, “he’s tremendous. Good off both feet, he sees the game and he moves well. He carries a goal threat…he’s someone with wonderful versatility,” as quoted by The Star.

That first loan move didn’t work out, but John-Jules has developed since then.

If the Gunners are open to letting the attacker go, he’d be an exciting addition to the Wednesday roster.

Who is Tyreece John-Jules?

John-Jules has been with the north London club since 2009, arriving at the Emirates Stadium as an eight-year-old. He has never made a senior appearance for the club, but has consistently impressed for the Gunners’ youth sides.

The 22-year-old has also had loan stints with Lincoln City and Doncaster Rovers in League One, and an encouraging spell with Blackpool in the Championship. He looked to have kicked on as a player at the start of last season whilst turning out for Ipswich Town, but his season was cut short by injury in November.

Bringing in John-Jules would be a low-cost, low-risk move for Munoz to make, and the England under-21 international has a point to prove at Hillsborough.
