The three key attributes Isgrove will bring to Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday completed the transfer of Lloyd Isgrove from Southampton yesterday.

Sheffield Wednesday completed the loan signing of Southampton winger Lloyd Isgrove yesterday.

The 22-year-old arrives at Hillsborough as Wednesday look to increase their attacking threat, and Owls supporters are excited to see him in action.

The wide man has impressed for Southampton's development side throughout the course of the campaign and in this piece we take a look at exactly what he will bring to Stuart Gray's side.


Few players in the Football League will have the pace to deal with Isgrove. The highly-rated youngster, is blistering off the mark and can burst past defenders with ease.

It is his main strength and it means that he is an obvious outlet for any team that he plays for.

Isgrove can leave defenders standing and he is always positive when in possession, with his direct threat an obvious problem. 

The youngster will always look to get round the outside of his marker and he should provide constant crosses for the likes of Stevie May and Atdhe Nuhiu to attempt to convert.


Isgrove may be a fairly diminutive presence, but he is not afraid of the physical battle.

Isgrove is tireless in his work rate and he should fit in well with Wednesday's current system, which demands their attacking players also help out a defensive scenarios. 


Above all else, Isgrove gets supporters' attention. His speed and close-control means that he naturally draws attention when in possession.

There is an urgency to his play and although he is not the finished product, there can be no doubting his quality.

Wednesday have not been the most gripping team to watch in the Championship this season, but Isgrove should increase the entertainment factor at Hillsborough and he will be hoping to make a good impression with the Yorkshire club.
