Neil Thompson issues Sheffield Wednesday transfer update

Published

on

Sheffield Wednesday remain locked in discussions over a potential striker transfer, but Neil Thompson would not be drawn on any names. 

Thompson oversaw Wednesday lose 2-0 to Coventry City last night in the Championship – a result that plunged the Owls further into relegation trouble in the division.

The interim Wednesday boss was quizzed on transfers in the aftermath of that defeat, with less than a week of the January transfer window now remaining for the Owls to find a striker to bolster their troubled squad.

It was revealed by Thompson (speaking to Yorkshire Live) that discussions are taking place over a potential deal, but no names were brought up.

He said: “Discussions are taking place on one or two players. As soon as something happens, you will be the first to know.”

Currently, Wednesday are the lowest scorers in the division having only found the back of the net on 15 occasions this season so far.

Callum Paterson is the club’s leading goalscorer across all competitions with five goals, whilst only three others (Josh Windass, Adam Reach and Barry Bannan) have scored more than once for the Owls.

Thompson’s side sit 23rd in the table and six points adrift of safety.

The Verdict 

These remaining days of the transfer window need to see Wednesday sign a striker.

Their squad lacks firepower and without goals they will be relegated this season.

Discussions are ongoing, but the window shuts on Monday and the club really need to hit the gas to get something over the line.

If they don’t, it’s going to be a huge worry.
