Wednesday were relegated from the Championship last season and look set to have an all-new playing side with the impending departure of 10 senior players, plus the likely exits of defensive pair Osaze Urhoghide and Julian Borner.

Moore brought in assistant manager Jamie Smith and first team coach Paul Williams on his arrival at S6 and looks set to continue in his moulding of things after the club advertised for a new lead physiotherapist for the first team.

The Star are looking into to whether that a physio has left the club or that they are intent on beefing up their backroom team ahead of the new season but does understand they are considering the appointment of a new goalkeeping coach to assist the work of Nicky Weaver at either a senior or academy level.

It is understood the new physio will not act as a direct replacement for Tony Strudwick, whose role was more senior as head of sports science and medicine and left for Arsenal earlier this month.

Antonio Quintela, who joined the Owls from Porto in July 2017, is listed as head physio on the club website.

As on the field, there has been a large turnover of front-line coaching staff at Wednesday in recent seasons, with Steve Bruce, Garry Monk and Tony Pulis having brought in their own men during their stints at the club.
