Sheffield Wednesday may look to strengthen three positions before the end of the transfer window, according to Sheffield Star journalist Alex Miller.
The Lowdown: Wednesday’s window
Darren Moore’s side have completed eight signings so far this summer after 13 players, including a number of loanees, left the club earlier on in the window.
Having finished their pre-season preparations, Wednesday’s eyes have switched to Saturday’s League One opening game against Portsmouth, with the side fully focused on gaining promotion to the Championship.
The Latest: Miller’s news
Miller has weighed in on Wednesday’s position in the transfer market after a busy summer at the Hillsborough Stadium. Taking to Twitter, the journalist claimed:
“A state of play round-up as Sheffield Wednesday continue to look to do business in the transfer window… Very much open to adding to at least three positions. Pace a priority. Loan possibilities coming into play.”
In the adjacent article, The Star reports that the Sheffield-based club are very much open to the possibility of adding a third choice goalkeeper, another central defender and a pacy attacking player in the coming weeks.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
Yes, of course!
No, not good enough!
The Verdict: Additions expected
“I could look at each department from the front line to the midfield, defence and goalkeeper,” Moore was quoted saying two weeks ago – before adding defensive midfielder Tyreeq Bakinson to his ranks.
And with the season set to start early, this will give the Owls boss the time he needs to assess his squad a little bit before that final piece of tuning in the market as we edge towards the closure of the window.
In the meantime, the manager will be able to scour the football pyramid for any potential additions, with Wednesday expected to dip back into the loan market.
