Sheffield Wednesday confirm signing of teenager Fisayo Dele-Bashiru

Sheffield Wednesday have announced their first summer signing, Fisayo Dele-Bashiru from English Premier League side Manchester City.

Dele-Bashiru came through City's academy ranks and continues to rise in his development and has been lauded for his displays as a box to box midfielder.

In his first interview as an Owls player, he told the club's official website: “I’m honoured to sign for Sheffield Wednesday and I’m excited to be here.

“I’m at an age now where I want to be playing first-team football and I am confident it will fall into place for me here.

“I know there are other players in the same position but competition for places is a positive.

“My game is about power, strength and pace, I like to go box to box and I like taking on a shot too.

“The manager has shown a desire to bring me to the club and that means a lot. He has a good CV and I’m sure this is the right platform for me at this stage of my career.”
