Garry Monk was the man tasked with steering the Owls closer to the promised land and having reportedly turned down Huddersfield Town in search of ‘the perfect opportunity’ last week, the Cowleys look set to u-turn their way to the John Smith’s Stadium.

Fittingly, their first match in charge of the Terriers could come against Wednesday this weekend, as former Leeds boss Monk looks forward to his Owls dugout debut in the Yorkshire derby.

The news has been met with a mixture of surprise and ambivalence by Wednesdayites, many of whom seem content with Monk as their man.
