Is Sam Hutchinson's best position in midfield?
Former Owls player Carlton Palmer believes that Hutchinson’s best position is as a holding midfielder, telling This is Futbol: “I think his best position is a holding midfield player. I know he can play at centre back but as a holding midfield player, you know he’s not blessed with great pace but he’s a very combative midfield player and he’s good in the air and you would think he’s comfortable at this level. He’s played a lot of games at Championship level.”
The 32-year-old is in his second spell with the Owls, after spending time with Pafos FC during the 2020/2021 campaign. As well as Pafos, Hutchinson has also had previous spells with Chelsea, Nottingham Forest and Vitesse Arnhem.
