Sheffield Wednesday: Owls keen on signing left-sided centre-back

Sheffield Wednesday: Owls keen on signing left-sided centre-back -Sheffield Wednesday News

Sheffield Wednesday are still planning on signing a left-sided centre-back in the summer transfer window, reliable journalist Dom Howson reports.

The Lowdown: Productive summer for Owls

The Owls missed out on promotion from League One last season and Darren Moore swiftly acted in the transfer market, bringing in a host of new faces that included Ben Heneghan, Will Vaulks and Michael Smith.

Wednesday have started their 2022/23 campaign promisingly, proving themselves as legitimate contenders for another run at promotion and also progressing into the second round of the EFL Cup, but they cannot afford to rest on their laurels.

Now, it looks as though another key addition could be coming in soon.

The Latest: Centre-back still wanted

Taking to Twitter, The Yorkshire Examiner‘s Howson claimed that a left-sided centre-back is next on Moore’s transfer agenda:

“Sheffield Wednesday are in the market for a left sided centre-back. It is an area of the squad where they are low on numbers.”

WHO IS THE PLAYER?

The Verdict: Right call by Moore

This is an encouraging update from a Wednesday perspective, with Heneghan already shining since coming in and a new partner for him potentially making the back-line more formidable.

Will Sheff Wed be promoted in 2022/23?

Yes

Yes

No

No

That’s not to say that Moore doesn’t have good centre-back options at his disposal, from Dominic Iorfa to Akin Famewo, but the latter’s injury has hampered squad depth.

A left-sided, and likely left-footed, signing would provide balance at the heart of the Owls’ defence and continue to stand them in good stead in their quest to return to the Championship.
