Championship

The 27-year-old star that would surely help Sheffield Wednesday achieve promotion – Agree?

Our Sheffield Wednesday fans here in the Transfer Tavern can’t wait for their side to get going again in the Championship with the obvious aim being promotion.

The Owls have been through the mill in the last couple of years as their quest for promotion has ended at the play-off stage.

Instead of getting down about it, though, it is imperative that the club goes again and this time makes it stick because they obviously have the talent to challenge at the sharp end of the league.

In many ways, then, they just need to sign a few more players to get them over the line and we think a punt on Oumar Niasse from Everton would be worth a go.

Though mocked at Goodison Park, Niasse proved what his pace and power can do for Hull City in the second half of last season and we think Wednesday would benefit from that hugely.

Indeed, something they need more of is players who can drive forward with the ball and Niasse is certainly the kind of player that can do just that.

He would likely be available for a pretty reasonable price, too, with the way he has not hit it off with Ronald Koeman at Everton and so we think if Wednesday can wrangle something, they should definitely go for it.

Thoughts, Owls fans? Let us know below!
