Sheffield Wednesday closing in on Michael Hector

Sheffield Wednesday closing in on Michael Hector

Sheffield Wednesday could be on the verge of adding a new recruit to their side this summer.

According to Graeme Bailey, Chelsea’s Michael Hector appears to be heading to the Owls on a temporary basis, although the duration of the spell is currently unknown.

Jos Luhukay’s side have had a troubled transfer window this summer, in which the club were not allowed to make any signings after an embargo was placed upon them.

However, that restriction has since been lifted and the Hillsborough outfit now have a week to try and strengthen their squad for the Championship campaign.

The 26-year-old, who is valued at £2.7million (via Transfermarkt) could be an individual that can help to improve their defence, in which the club has looked shaky at times.

Hector has the experience of playing in the second-tier of English football, with two separate spells in the division with former club Reading and Hull City as well as playing in the Bundesliga for Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Verdict:

Hector could be a solid addition for Sheffield Wednesday to make this summer as he has proven he is capable of playing at the Championship level.

The 26-year-old was a mainstay in the Hull City side last season and helped Nigel Adkins’ club avoid relegation, something that the Owls could be facing themselves this year.

Wednesday are short of options at the back currently and the addition of Hector would certainly help to improve the quality in the side.
