Sheffield Wednesday: Owls ‘hopeful’ over Mallik Wilks signing

Sheffield Wednesday: Owls ‘hopeful’ over Mallik Wilks signing -Sheffield Wednesday News

Sheffield Wednesday are ‘still hopeful’ of signing Hull City forward Mallik Wilks in the summer transfer window, according to reliable journalist Dom Howson.

The Lowdown: Owls keen on Wilks

The 23-year-old could potentially depart Hull in the coming weeks, having struggled to nail down a regular starting berth last season, making 20 Championship appearances.

Wednesday have been linked with a move for Wilks recently, as Darren Moore looks to bring in more wide attacking quality between now and the end of August.

Now, a fresh update suggests that the transfer could still be in the pipeline.

The Latest: Howson provides fresh update

Taking to Twitter on Monday, Yorkshire Live‘s Howson provided a positive update on Wednesday’s quest to sign Wilks:

“Mallik Wilks did not feature for Hull against Bristol City due to a minor injury. Sheffield Wednesday are still hopeful of signing Wilks before the transfer window shuts.”

WHO IS THE PLAYER?

The Verdict: Final piece of the jigsaw?

The Owls have spent well during the summer, strengthening their spine by bringing in the likes of Ben Heneghen, Will Vaulks and Michael Smith, but they are still lacking out wide.

Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?

Yes, of course!

Yes, of course!

No, not good enough!

No, not good enough!

Wilks could be the perfect man to come in and provide that pace, trickery and quality for the strikers, having scored 30 goals and registered ten assists in 89 appearances for Hull, hitting the back of the net 52 times in total across his career.

His addition would make Wednesday’s attack even more potent – he has been described as ‘dangerous’ by Grant McCann – and further strengthen their reputation as arguably the favourites to be crowned League One champions this season.
