How has Sylla Sow fared since leaving Sheffield Wednesday last summer?

Sheffield Wednesday offloaded Dutch forward Sylla Sow last summer, bringing an end to his short time on these shores.

Sheffield Wednesday made the left-field swoop for Sow in the summer of 2021, bringing him over from the Netherlands to Hillsborough on a free transfer from RKC Waalwijk. He had spent his entire career in his native Holland prior to the move and ended up making a pretty quick return.

A little over a season with the Owls yielded 23 appearances for Sow, during which he managed five goals. Three of those came in cup competitions, but he did manage league goals and Plymouth Argyle and Burton Albion.

Ultimately, he was unable to forge a place in Darren Moore’s side and returned to Holland last summer, signing for Eredivisie side Go Ahead Eagles on a permanent basis.

But how has Sow fared since?

Well, Sow has featured regularly for Go Ahead Eagles since his return, playing a part in all but three Eredivisie games so far this season. However, he is still waiting on his first league start. All 17 of his league outings have been as a substitute, the longest of which was a 45-minute outing on his debut back in September.

He scored in a 2-2 draw with FC Utrecht in January and that has been his only league goal thus far. He did net up a cup outing against Helmond Sport earlier in the season, but those two strikes have been his only goals to date.

Sow is on a contract with the Eagles until the end of the season and it remains to be seen whether or not he can earn an extended stay, but you would think he would need to break his way into the starting XI if he’s to earn a new contract.

His hunt for more meaningful minutes away from Sheffield Wednesday hasn’t quite gone as hoped yet. It will be hoped he can impress enough in his substitute appearances to earn a starting chance though.
