Sheffield Wednesday transfer news: Ex-Owls duo close in on Championship move, West Brom block £10m offer
Excitement is building ahead of the new League One season, as Sheffield Wednesday look to make the step straight back up to second-tier by earning promotion this season.
The Owls lost a number of key players following their relegation, but are making solid progress signing replacements, bringing in f David Agbontohoma, Dennis Adeniran, Jaden Brown and Olamide Shodipo over the past few weeks.
Wednesday have been gaining match fitness through the some pre-season friendlies, taking on the likes of Celtic and Chester FC, and they're back in action against last season's Championship play-off semi-finalists Barnsley.
Meanwhile, Owls boss Darren Moore has backed Andre Green to impress in League One this season, and said: "It’s his moment now, his moment to come and shine… This is the time. He probably feels like he should’ve scored his first chance but the keeper’s pulled off the save. But he made sure with the second one.
“I thought his 45 minutes was good, I thought he looked sharp, I thought his decision-making and timing of runs was good, as well as his ball manipulation. He’s got the goal, and deserved it, so I’m really pleased with the outing.”
On new loan signing Shodipo, Moore added: “The goal (against Alfreton Town) came from turning defence into attack, which is something you need when you’ve got that speed, technical ability and a goal threat… It’s always going to keep opposition on the backfoot, and it’s what you want. We want players that ask the opposition questions, and those two – one on the right and one on the left – can be threats on both wings.”
