Breaking News ! Korede Adedoyin was a notable absentee from Sheffield Wednesday's Under-23s curtain-raiser against Wigan Athletic today. The highly-rated forward, brought in following a successful trial period at the club, sat-out the behind-closed-doors fixture due to a delay in processing the paperwork to his free transfer move. But U23s coach Lee Bullen is confident the issue will be resolved quickly and Adedoyin will be in contention for selection when they go to South Yorkshire neighbours Barnsley next week.

It should be through in the next couple of days. "He fully deserves his contract and Wigan would have suited him today. He is a big, powerful lad who would have held the ball up and been able to handle the physical side of it against their two big centre-backs. "I think he will be a good addition and hopefully he will be ready for the game against Barnsley next week." Adedoyin, a graduate of Everton’s youth system, spent time on loan with Scottish outfit Hamilton Academical last season. He left Goodison Park last summer and it is understood the 19-year-old has agreed a two-year deal with the Owls.

Bullen said: "He brings a really good bit of quality. He's a really good finisher. "There are still aspects of his game he needs to work on. "But from what we have seen so far and in the pre-season games we have had he is a natural finisher. He has got a heck of a left peg. "He relishes the physical side of things. He doesn't mind centre-backs climbing all over him because he tends to roll them. He has got great feet. He will link play.

But Wigan staged a superb comeback after the break and left with maximum points following a strike from Thelo Aasgaard and a well taken penalty by Oliver Crankshaw after a foul by Hagan in the box. "I was really pleased with the first half performance other than the early goal," said Bullen. "We played a lot of good stuff on a difficult pitch against a very physical, direct Wigan side. "I thought we played some really good stuff and deserved to be leading.

"We lost confidence with the goals we gave away and stopped passing the ball and stopped doing what got them in front in the first half. "There was a lapse of concentration for the third goal and we got our just rewards in the second half. "We were schooled in the way they played. They were very direct and physical and played with a lot more maturity than we did. "We started to play into their hands and started kicking it long and lost any sort of footballing rhythm we had in the first half."
