Sheffield Wednesday: Fans react as James Garner is linked with Hillsborough move - Sheffield Wednesday Transfer Rumours

Sheffield Wednesday have made some astute signings to bolster the squad as they look to survive the drop following the 12 point deduction that was given to them by the EFL for this season.

It looks like they are hoping to acquire a young talent on loan as The Star journalist Joe Crann has tweeted that the Owls have submitted a loan offer for Manchester United academy prospect James Garner.

The 19-year-old midfielder has made 73 appearances for United, with seven of these coming at senior level whilst the rest have been in the youth setup, per Transfermarkt, and he has managed 15 goals and six assists in a Red Devils shirt so far.

He clearly has a lot of potential as he won the Under-23’s Player of the Year award at Old Trafford for his efforts during the 2019/20 campaign, and this looks like it would a good signing for the Owls to bolster their squad.

The transfer rumours have caused a lot of debate – some fans are happy whilst others think that Wednesday don’t need him, perhaps justifiably as they already have eight midfielders at the club, per Transfermarkt.

Some also believe he will not end up at Hillsborough, as journalist Alan Nixon has tweeted that fellow Championship side Watford are close to securing a loan move for the youngster.

Here is what these Wednesday fans have said following Crann’s tweet:
