Out of contract this summer, Everton's Michael Donohue impresses for Sheffield Wednesday's Under-23s

Everton youngster Michael Donohue impressed during Sheffield Wednesday Under-23s' 1-0 win at home to Queens Park Rangers on Friday.

The 19-year-old, who also played in the young Owls' 3-2 success at Hull City four days ago, supplied the assist for George Hirst to score the game's only goal inside two minutes at Hillsborough.

Out of contract at the end of this season (Transfermarkt), Donohue appears to be on the lookout for new employment, having also appeared for Bolton Wanderers' Under-23s last month.

The left- or right-winger has never played for Everton's first team, but did get a brief taste of senior football while on loan to Barrow last season.

Should Wednesday hand a contract to Donohue, the Warrington native would follow in the footsteps of centre-back Jordan Thorniley, who moved to Hillsborough from Everton after a trial spell last year.

Everton have been strongly linked with a move for Wednesday's Hirst in recent months, although Owls academy coach Steven Haslam dodged the subject during an appearance on Alan Biggs' Sheffield Live TV show on Thursday.
