Some fans have voted Dominic Iorfa as Sheffield Wednesday’s Player of the Month after his impressive form in November. The 24-year-old has been a regular at centre-back this season and has shone over the last two months.

Iorfa was outstanding alongside Tom Lees in Sheffield Wednesday’s 3-1 win over Charlton Athletic on Saturday too. He’s made 15 appearances in 2019/20, scoring and creating three goals, while helping to keep four clean sheets.

Should Dominic Iorfa be named Sheffield Wednesday's Player of the Month for November?





The former England u21 international has racked up 1306 minutes of Championship football, won 48 aerial duels (52%), averaged 30.6 passes-per-game with 73.4% accuracy, made 10 successful dribbles (67%), blocked 21 shots/crosses/passes, made 56 clearances, averaged a tackle (30) or interception (13) every 30 minutes and made six chances.

Iorfa joined the Owls from Wolverhampton Wanderers in January and has gone on to make 25 appearances in all competitions. He’s operated at right-back for Wednesday but looks perfectly suited to a central role that allows him to see more of the ball.

Despite operating at centre-back, Iorfa is able to drive with the ball from deep to turn defence into attack. He’s been terrific under Garry Monk, and fans will hope that continues in December.

  • Dominic Iorfa has been brilliant since stepping up to the central defensive role , time and again his long legs have taken the ball cleanly from an opposition forward when the chips were down , The reported £ 200,000 price tag as opposed to the £ 8 million that Chelsea supposedly demanded for big Hec is more in line with the finances of a club who are not sailing on a raft of Parachute money , Iorfa’s one achilles heel is when heading a ball out of defence , which regularly seems to find an opponent , but all in all he is a huge presence in defence , and will no doubt improve as the season goes on , and the fact that Sam Hutchinson is even better in central defence than midfield leaves us extremely strong in central defence .
