Both Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday are busy bolstering their squads at the moment.

The Blades reached the Championship play-offs last season and will be hoping for more of the same again next term as Paul Heckingbottom gears up for his first full campaign at the helm.

They delved into the transfer market yesterday to land midfielder Tommy Doyle on a season-long loan from Manchester City.

Sheffield Wednesday, on the other hand, have been a lot busier than their rivals as they look to claw themselves out of League One under Darren Moore.

The Owls have made some impressive signings such as Will Vaulks, Michael Ihiekwe, Michael Smith, Ben Heneghan and David Stockdale.

They have also welcomed back goalkeeper Cameron Dawson from his solid loan spell last season in League Two at Exeter City.
