Sheffield Wednesday will reportedly reward Garry Monk for his good start as manager by backing him in the January transfer window.
The Owls have been subject to a number of checks in line with FFP Regulations in the last 12 months but the Wednesday board will now back Monk with the funds to bring in new players.
The draw with Leeds yesterday saw Wednesday maintain their place in the play-off places in the Championship and Monk has reportedly now tasked a team with identifying targets for the winter window.
According to the a report in the Sun on Sunday (print edition, October 27th), Monk will look to bring in the required standard of player to aid a second-half of season promotion push towards the Premier League.
Although money is available, it is thought Monk will look to the loan market to bring in the required quality he feels can aid his squad.
The summer saw Wednesday make a number of signings as the likes of Kadeem Harris and Julian Borner arrived at Hillsborough. Both those players have made excellent starts to life in S6 under Monk.
This is excellent news for Wednesday and their fans and just reward for Monk making such an impression.
He’s turned things round for the better and they look like being a genuine challenger when it comes to the top six.
Yesterday’s performance proved they can hang with the best in the division when they play well. If they can add one or two players in key positions – such as up front – then they could be well on their way to challenging come May.
