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
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
“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.”
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!
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.
