‘Far better than what we have’ – These Sheffield Wednesday fans weigh up the potential signing of former favourite

Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham has been strongly linked with a return to Sheffield Wednesday on-loan this January, according to the Star.

Garry Monk heads into this January looking at his first transfer window in charge of the Owls, having taken over from Lee Bullen and Steve Bruce in September, and will be keen to add to his squad to help it mould to what he wants from it.

Monk has done very well so far to establish Wednesday as one of the promotion contenders this season, as they currently sit just two points behind sixth-placed Swansea City after 26 games.

One player that had been key to that push was star striker Steven Fletcher who has netted 12 league goals this season, however, the Owls were dealt a huge blow when he suffered a knee injury in their 1-0 FA Cup win on Saturday, ruling him out for eight to ten weeks.

With this in mind, it would be in Monk’s best interests to make a move for a striker to plug this alarming gap. 

He has turned his attention to Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham, who has struggled for regular playing time in the Premier League and could be open to a return to Hillsborough, having spent half of the 2013/14 season on-loan in South Yorkshire.

The Star are reporting that Garry Monk is keen on the forward who would go some way to shouldering the goalscoring burden left by Fletcher’s injury.

With a former player looking like he could make his way through the doors again at Hillsborough, it will be sure to spark discussion from the fans.

Here, we take a look at how fans reacted on Twitter to the news…
