Former Sheffield Wednesday player Carlton Palmer has hailed Jaden Brown as a manager’s dream.
The 22-year-old signed for the Owls this summer after leaving previous side Huddersfield Town where he had spent the previous two campaigns and his first competitive match for Sheffield Wednesday was against the Terriers in the Carabao Cup, with Brown coming on as a substitute.

Brown has predominantly played as a left-back during his career but has also had spells playing as a left midfielder, as well as both a centre-back and defensive midfielder, with Palmer hailing him as a manager’s dream.
“The absolute manager’s dream because you’re always going to pick up injuries, you’re always going to pick up suspensions and you need a player that can fill in all those areas and they actually become key players, key players to your team, key players to your squad,” Palmer told This is Futbol.
Brown has also previously had a spell at Tottenham Hotspur where he featured in their academy at U18, UEFA U19 and U23 level, as well as spending time with Exeter City in the 2018/2019 campaign.
Sheffield Wednesday manager Darren Moore was full of praise for Brown following the Owls’ victory against Rotherham back in August, telling the club’s official website: “He’s got the bit between his teeth when he’s got the ball higher up the pitch, he wants to get forward, he wants to have a go at his defensive opponent.
“He is a wonderful out for us and it’s nice to have him.”
