Could highly-rated 22-year-old be set to feature in Chris Wilder’s plans?

There is strong anticipation that Luke Thomas will make a return to Leicester City, creating an available domestic loan slot for Chris Wilder to utilise this window, per a recent report by Alan Nixon.

Among the alternative options in that position, Yasser Larouci is currently away on African Cup of Nations duty with Algeria. Additionally, Max Lowe is sidelined due to injury, and Rhys Norrington-Davies, who recently made his comeback after being out for over 14 months due to injury, will be under careful management.

Meanwhile Harry Boyes might be on the verge of a dream Premier League opportunity following Sheffield United’s choice to end his loan stint at Wycombe Wanderers. According to The Star, the 22-year-old highly-rated left wing-back will be returning to Bramall Lane this month.

While it remains uncertain whether he will be loaned out again in the second half of the season or potentially sold during this transfer window, the left-back position is currently under consideration by manager Chris Wilder. He is aiming to balance the squad effectively during the ongoing transfer window.

Boyes has been quite active during the current season, making 29 appearances in various competitions for Wycombe Wanderers. His last game was on Boxing Day, where he came off the bench for the final eight minutes in a defeat against Exeter. Since then, he hasn’t been included in any matchday squads, and his playing time has been limited. Notably, he received a red card against his hometown club, Barnsley, in November.

The decision to end his loan spell at Wycombe Wanderers suggests a potential reevaluation of his role and opportunities back at Sheffield United.
