The Lowdown: Owl eye up new signings

The Latest: Hudlin linked with move
According to Football Insider, Wednesday are interested in acquiring the signature of Hudlin, who stands at an incredible 6 foot 9.
Championship pair Barnsley and Huddersfield Town are also believed to be tracking Hudlin, who at 20, would represent a long-term acquisition.
The Verdict: An intriguing option?
Hudlin’s unusual height certainly makes him a unique option for Wednesday, potentially proving to be a nightmare for League One defenders.
Whether or not be possesses the mobility to thrive in a higher division is questionable, however, given the step up in quality from the National League and the size of him physically.
It would be a gamble of a signing, but Moore needs to be trusted in the transfer market, and if Britain’s tallest player is his top target to shore up the forward line, fans may just have to trust the boss.
