Sheffield Wednesday transfer round-up: Duo arrive as player’s Hillsborough exit now looms



Sheffield Wednesday are aiming to shake off the disappointment of relegation in 2020/21 as they embark on the new League One campaign. 

Darren Moore’s side kick-off their season with a League Cup clash against Huddersfield Town over the weekend, before focus turns to the league and launching a promotion push.

Shaping Moore’s squad over the course of this summer has proved to be difficult on the whole, but the Owls have managed to hit the accelerator and get a couple of impressive deals done over the course of the last 24 hours.

We run you through the latest transfer headlines floating around Hillsborough at this moment in time:

Lewis Wing 

Sheffield Wednesday announced the arrival of Wing at Hillsborough yesterday, with the midfielder arriving on a season-long loan from Middlesbrough.

Wing, 26, has made 92 appearances for the Teessiders and scored 14 goals across all competitions. He’s also had loan spells with Yeovil and Rotherham United in the past.

Heading to the latter for the second-half of last season, Wing scored twice and registered two assists in the Championship, but couldn’t keep Rotherham in the division.

Bailey Peacock-Farrell 

The Northern Ireland No.1 has also arrived at Sheffield Wednesday on a season-long loan, this time from Premier League side, Burnley.

Peacock-Farrell has found game time at Turf Moor difficult to come by because of the presence of Nick Pope in Sean Dyche’s squad. However, prior to that, he built up plenty of experience in the Championship with Leeds United.

He made 40 starts in the Championship for the Whites, including 28 in the 2018/19 season as Leeds reached the play-offs under Marcelo Bielsa.

Cameron Dawson 

The arrival of Peacock-Farrell is likely to open the exit door for another player at Hillsborough.

As per Dom Howson, Dawson is set for a season-long loan with Exeter City in League Two.

The Grecians are always in-and-around the play-off mix in League Two, with Moore describing it as a ‘great’ move.

Dawson, 26, has made 76 appearances for the Owls, but Peacock-Farrell’s arrival knocks him down the pecking order and leaves Joe Wildsmith as his competition.
