The transfer window is always an exciting time of the year for fans as they hope for the team they support to add some good additions to the squad, and a lot of Sheffield Wednesday fans are reacting to their club’s transfer links with Chey Dunkley.
The Star journalist Dom Howe tweeted: “Led to believe #SWFC are interested in signing former Wigan defender Chey Dunkley. The 28-year-old is available on a free transfer, having left Wigan at the end of last season.”
The centre-back is at a good age to be signed and he has good experience in the Championship. He played 26 times in the division last season, keeping seven clean sheets and averaging 3.9 clearances a game, per WhoScored.
The player is valued at £1.08m by Transfermarkt, so the fact that Sheffield Wednesday could get him on a free transfer would seem an astute piece of business. The only worry, however, is that he is only recently fit again after suffering a double leg break in February, so he would need time to recover in order to get match-fit for the 2020/21 season.
Here is what these Owls fans said following the tweet from Howson:

Would be a great signing this lad. Scores a few for a defender as well.

Good signing if true. Urgently need some new bodies in and allow GM some form of pre-season with them

If he can play in the middle of a back 3, that would be good. Try and move JVA on and get a stronger LCB of the three 👍 #swfc

If we are going to get anyone from Wigan then we need a good combative defensive midfield like Sam Morsy.
