The Owls saw a number of players leave the club following their relegation to the third tier, and Darren Moore has a real task on his hands to prepare a squad capable of bouncing back up at the first time of asking.

Ex-Wednesday man Chris Brunt has been discussing the club's challenge to recruit new players, but insisted the promise of playing the Owls's iconic home stadium Hillsborough could lure in signings this summer.

Brunt said: “That's one of the biggest things (playing at Hillsborough). You drive up to the ground, see the stadium, it's awesome. The training ground hasn't changed since I got there, it's still a little bit small for that level of football, but the stadium is a massive pull.

“You can't walk down to Hillsborough and not have that wow factor, that proper English football stadium feel. That'll be a huge factor for a lot of players at that level.

“But when you drop down like they have, you become a really big fish at that level and it kind of inspires the other teams to do well. It's a double-edged sword at times.”

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Sheffield Wednesday and the rest of the EFL, as the reaction to summer transfer window activity and build-up to the eagerly-anticipated new season continues:
