Sheffield Wednesday fans have reacted positively to the club's transfer dealings.

And while the long-standing pursuit of Chelsea defender Michael Hector appears to have failed, the mood among fans seems positive.

Hamburg loanee Bates became the club’s seventh new signing of the window, joining Murphy, Luongo, Moses Odubajo, Kadeem Harris and Julian Borner through the door at Hillsborough.

One common observation has been the addition of pace to the squad, with fans at Saturday’s 3-1 win at Reading noting the eagerness to hit on the counter attack.
