Steve Bruce could look to use his ‘connections’ to bolster Sheff Wed squad in the summer

Steve Bruce could look to use his ‘connections’ to bolster Sheff Wed squad in the summer

It is no secret that Sheffield Wednesday have their problems when it comes down to Financial Fair Play regulations.

The Owls are likely to face another transfer embargo over the summer, having been placed under one last season.

However, with Steve Bruce in charge, it may not necessarily be a bad thing for the Hillsborough outfit, as the experienced manager has been largely successful in bringing in a number of players on temporary deals over the years.


And, according to a report by The Sheffield Star, it appears he could look to use some of his ‘connections’ to help him out again next summer.

“Now in the summer, you can register your interest with the big clubs and use your connections and can you get two or three young ones from Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal?” he said.

“That is what we did at Aston Villa and Hull, the loan ones can be just as important as those who you bring through your doors.”

The Verdict:

With the club currently facing another transfer embargo, it would be smart to consider the loan market and Bruce could be the ideal man to have when it comes to negotiating with some of England’s bigger clubs.

Before being fired at The Villans, he managed to bring the likes of Sam Johnston, Lewis Grabban, Axel Tuanzebe and Tammy Abraham on temporary deals during his tenure.

He has already managed to bring Achraf Lazaar and Rolando Aarons from Newcastle United on loan deals, so he obviously has some ‘connections’ that could prove valuable to him and Sheffield Wednesday next season.
