The Owls lost a number of their players following the expiry of their contracts, and manager Darren Moore will be desperate to the quality players required to see his team bounce back to the second tier at the first time of asking.

Meanwhile, former Owls star Chris Brunt has claimed that the opportunity to pay in Wednesday's stadium will be a real draw for any potential signings, and 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.

“Generally I'm pretty laid back. All through my career I never got overly nervous before games and I loved it. Going out there and playing in front of a crowd, which I'd never really done before at any level, to go there on a Saturday afternoon at three o'clock, you feel how much it matters.”

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 last season and the build-up to summer transfer window activity continues:
