Sheffield Wednesday look set to lose promising youngster George Hirst to Leicester City as the Premier League side look to snap up the young forward.
George Hirst, the son of Sheffield Wednesday legend David Hirst, has been touted as one of the brightest talents in Championship, with many tipping the youngster for huge success in the highest level in the near future.
Hirst’s potential has led many of the Premier League teams to show interest in the young striker despite him yet to mark down a regular first team place in the Owls squad and now Leicester City are believed to be keen on eyeing a swoop.
The lack of first team opportunity has reportedly disappointed Hirst, who is now looking for a possible way out from the Championship club in search of more minutes on the pitch.
Considering Hirst’s struggles to feature in a mid-table Championship side, it might be interesting that one of the most invested pursuers of the youngster are Leicester City.
Nonetheless, Hirst is undoubtedly a top talent and he could prove to be a very good signing in the ilk of Demarai Gray for the Foxes.
