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.

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.
