Sheffield Wednesday could sign Basingstoke Town striker Sam Smart who is on trial with the Owls' under-23 side this week.

Smart scored one and assisted the winner in the youth team's 2-1 win over Hallam on Wednesday night.

Owls scouts are also said to have been watching Norwegian club Molde play in their Europa League tie with Northern Ireland's Glenavon.
