‘Embarassing’, ‘Says it all’ – Many Sheffield Wednesday fans react to potential West Brom summer deal

Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly interested in signing West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Josh Griffiths on loan, which has drawn an interesting reaction from fans of the Yorkshire club. 

The Owls are facing a season back in League One after finishing bottom of the Championship and being relegated last term.

A significant chunk of their first team squad, including experienced shot-stopper Keiren Westwood, have been released at the end of their contracts but a transfer embargo and issues over the paying of wages has limited Darren Moore’s preparations for life in the third tier so far.

It is understood that goalkeeper is a position that Wednesday are looking to improve this summer and it seems they’ve identified a target.

According to Birmingham Live, Griffiths is on the Owls radar after his impressive performances helped Cheltenham Town secure promotion last term.

He kept 21 clean sheets in 44 League Two appearances last term as Cheltenham won the title.

Moore is said to be a big fan of the teenage keeper and would likely be aware of him from his time in charge of West Brom.

Wednesday face competition from the Robins for the 19-year-old, with the South West club’s chairman Andy Wilcox confirming recently Cheltenham and Griffiths are both keen on another loan deal.

Did each of these 20 players ever score a goal whilst on loan at Sheffield Wednesday?
