Wednesday are still in the market for new players as Monk seeks to bolster his squad further before the transfer window closes next month, and Paterson is the latest player who is said to have made his way onto their radar.

The rumours built up more steam after the versatile full back was followed on Instagram by Dejphon Chansiri’s son, Att, but Monk wouldn’t be drawn into naming any sort of names when asked about their reported interest.

Speaking to the media when asked about the Scot, the SWFC manager said, “We’re going to be linked with everyone, we’re talking to a number of people and seeing where we can get with them.

“It’s just a case of me not really having any information to tell you. I think I’ve said it to you the last two or three games, I promise you, if I have any news then I’ll tell you.”

He also said during today’s press conference, “We’re in talks with certain targets, but there’s nothing imminent at the moment. My hope is that there could be something before the weekend, but there’s nothing definite about that.”

Paterson played 37 times for Cardiff City last season as they reached the Championship Play-Offs, but has been an unused substitute in both of their league games this season – including the 2-0 defeat to Wednesday on the opening day of the campaign.
