Sheffield Wednesday will be looking to hit the ground running in the summer transfer market.
After suffering relegation from the Championship last term it’s set to be all change at Hillsborough as Darren Moore looks to build a team that’s capable of securing an immediate return to the second tier.
However with off-field issues likely to dictate what happens in terms of recruitment, it could mean that it’s a challenging summer to navigate.
Joost van Aken, Kadeem Harris, Elias Kachunga, Tom Lees, Matt Penney, Moses Odubajo, Joey Pelupessy, Adam Reach, Jordan Rhodes and Keiren Westwood were all released at the end of last season, meaning that there’s significant work to do, but who could be heading to the club?
Here’s the latest transfer news to come from Hillsborough…

Sheffield Wednesday are plotting a move for young goalkeeper Josh Griffiths, as per reports from Birmingham Live.
The West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper has enjoyed a wonderful season on loan with Cheltenham Town where he helped the club to secure automatic promotion from League Two with 50 appearances to his name.
The newly-promoted side are keen to re-sign the 19-year-old on loan next term, but it’s now claimed that Darren Moore’s side are also plotting a move following the exit of Keiren Westwood.
The report claims: “It’s believed that Sheffield Wednesday and former boss Darren Moore – who will come up against Cheltenham in League One next term after suffering relegation from the Championship – are keeping an eye on Griffiths’ availability after they parted with first choice stopper Keiron Westwood at the end of the campaign.
“Moore will be familiar with Griffiths and aware of his ability from his own time at The Hawthorns, but the potential – if Albion allowed it – of him returning to Cheltenham possesses its own obvious benefits for the player.”
The Sheffield Wednesday defender is considering a move to Germany this summer, according to Yorkshire Live.
Reports have claimed that Borner is attracting interest from Bundesliga 2 side Hannover 96 with the German club said to be keen on strengthening their defensive line.
The 30-year-old has one more year on his deal in South Yorkshire but with Darren Moore’s side preparing for life in League One, it’s claimed that the Owls are looking for a new centre-back to join the club this summer.
Sheffield Wednesday are among the clubs interested in a move for St Johnstone’s Scott Tanser, according to Football Insider.
The Owls are plotting a summer rebuild and have identified the 26-year-old left-back as an ideal candidate to join the side ahead of their first campaign in League One.
It’s claimed that Doncaster Rovers and Shrewsbury Town are also keen on a move for the player who has featued 139 times for the Scottish Premiership side, scoring seven goals and winning a domestic cup double in Scotland this term.
As things stand, Tanser’s current St Johnstone contract is set to expire this summer, but the club are apparently still keen to secure a new deal for the defender.
