3 Sheffield Wednesday fringe players that will be hoping the club make use of League 1 & 2’s extended deadline



Sheffield Wednesday have enjoyed a superb start to the season with the Owls picking up maximum points from their opening two games and they lead the way in the Championship on goal difference.

Whilst losing Steve Bruce to Newcastle was undoubtedly a blow, he did leave the Yorkshire side in a decent position after their summer recruitment.

As a result, several good players haven’t made the matchday squad for Lee Bullen in the first two games and with the Championship window shut, they will be hoping to secure moves lower down the leagues.

Even if it’s a short-term deal until January, playing regularly is what the players will want and impressing elsewhere could help their chances of breaking in at Hillsborough eventually.

Here we look at THREE Owls men who will be open to dropping down the leagues before the September 2 deadline…

Jordan Thorniley

The 22-year-old enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last time out, however he has failed to make the squad for the first two games this season.

With Joost van Aken moving on, the Owls may be reluctant to let Thorniley leave as well but a loan in particular could be exactly what he needs.

He needs to be playing regularly to help his development and that’s not going to happen at Hillsborough.

Matt Penney

Another who made a name for himself last season, the reality is that Penney is third choice left-back at Wednesday right now.

Therefore, he would surely be open to a move as well this window. Given his potential, a loan deal seems the most likely option and it could benefit all parties.

Sam Winnall

It was a surprise that Winnall didn’t get a Championship move as he has shown himself to be a good player at this level but he remains at Hillsborough and finds himself way down the pecking order.

Given his ability, most top League One sides should be interested in doing a deal and it could appeal to the striker.

After suffering with injuries over the years, the 28-year-old should relish the chance to become a main man in the third tier and it will be interesting to see what happens in the coming weeks.
