The Owls haven't played since the 9th of January, when they knocked Exeter out of the third-round with a 2-0 win, due to a COVID-19 outbreak at the club. Wednesday will be wary of the fixture pile-up that awaits them, in an already match-packed Championship schedule.With such a hefty workload, the importance of securing some fresh signings is greater than ever, and the club secured their first signing of the window earlier in the week, with ex-Aston Villa winger Andre Green joining on a free transfer.Speaking to the Star yesterday, the 22-year-old revealed: "I had many chats with (former Owls boss) Garry Monk when I was at Charlton, and we thought everything was going to get done then.“From that moment I knew that Sheffield Wednesday would be a great place for me to develop - it’s as big as Villa, it’s a great place to be and has everything you need as a footballer facility-wise."Meanwhile, the Owls continue their hunt for a new manager, with the likes of Paul Cook and Vladimir Ivic currently among the favourites for the job.Here's our rundown of the latest news and transfer chat involving Sheffield Wednesday and the rest of the second-tier:
