Darren Moore confirms Sheffield Wednesday transfer action

Published

Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore has confirmed that the Yorkshire club are now looking at their options in the free agent market due to their injury issues.

Dennis Adeniran and Marvin Johnson are the latest to join an injury list that includes the likes of Lee Gregory, Dominic Iorfa, and Jack Hunt.

Speaking after they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Plymouth Argyle in midweek, Moore told Yorkshire Live that the club had taken action as they look to solve their current issues.

He said: “Yes. With the injury record now, with what’s happened, it’s forced us to have a look in the free transfer market, to see who is out there and whether we can get anybody in.

“It would be to help us and to bring in bodies in positions we are light in.”

Moore has certainly been no stranger to the free agent market since taking charge at Hillsborough with a number of the signings he made in the summer arriving via that route.

Defence may be an area that he looks to strengthen as he was forced to start Callum Paterson, who does have experience in the backline but has played as a forward throughout his Owls career, as a centre-back.

After leaving Middlesbrough at the end of last season, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing has been linked with the Hillsborough outfit and is understood to still be training with the club.

Did Adam Reach make more or less than 200 appearances for the Owls?

The Verdict

Wednesday fans will likely to pleased to hear that the club is taking action to try and combat their current injury problems.

The absences of some key players has no doubt been a factor in the Owls’ poor form of late, with Moore’s side winning just two of their last nine games.

If the 47-year-old is still at the helm in January, it would not be a surprise to see him look to make some changes to his squad but for the time being, only the free agent market is available to him.

That can be a very useful asset if used properly but it does not come without its risks.
