The Owls had a slow start to the 2016/17 campaign but have steadily lifted themselves into the Championship play-offs, currently sitting sixth on 42 points – two ahead of seventh-placed Birmingham City.

Sheffield Wednesday’s form has seen the Yorkshire club lose just once since their defeat to Ipswich Town in early November, a run of 18 points.

Manager Carlos Carvalhal led his side to the play-off final last season but lost a measly 1-0 to Hull City after a Mohamed Diame stunner. It looks like the Portuguese man will take the Owls to a similar ending this term having recruited well during the summer transfer window.

We’re now in January and the club may be looking to further strengthen the squad to solidify their position in the top-six and mount a promotion challenge if they happen to make it to the play-offs.

There’s plenty of midfielders that Wednesday could bring to Hillsborough to improve the first-team, and here are two that the club should seal a deal for this month.
