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
“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.”
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?
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.
