Morrison spent a period training with the Owls recently as Darren Moore took a closer look at the attacking midfielder given his status as a free agent, but it doesn’t seem as though they will be pursuing him any further at this stage.

Wednesday were also looking at another Red Devil, Danny Simpson, however the defender has since gone on to join his former Leicester City manager, Nigel Pearson, at Bristol City.

Simpson spent a period of time at Middlewood Road as Darren Moore ran the rule over him – even playing in an U23s game earlier this month – however the Owls boss said that ultimately it wasn’t the right fit.

Not long after leaving the Owls, the 34-year-old penned a deal with the Robins as he teamed up with Pearson as an experienced member of his squad.

As for Morrison, The Star understands that Morrison is no longer training with the Owls as they focus on trying to get a result against Watford this coming weekend, and the deadline to register new players has now passed.

The English Football League’s rules state, “Where any new registration or transfer of a Player is received by The League after 5pm on the fourth Thursday in March in each Season, that Player will not be eligible to play in any match organised by The League in that Season, except as permitted in Regulation 57 (emergency goalkeepers).”

Morrison, whose last club was ADO Den Haag in the Netherlands, will now begin his search for a new club elsewhere, but will be targeting a return to action next season if he wishes to remain in English football.

Moore may well have fresh players to pick from for Friday’s clash with The Hornets at Vicarage Road after the international break gave them a chance to get some rest, and he certainly felt that players like Simpson and Morrison wouldn’t have added to their chances of Championship survival.

Wednesday face Watford at 3pm on Good Friday afternoon.
