Laws Cools Potter Interest

Laws Cools Potter Interest

Wednesday are believed to have cooled their interest in signing former loan midfielder Darren Potter on a permanent deal.

Potter enjoyed a sucessful loan stint from Wolves in the blue and white stripes in the second half last season.

And his performances looked to have impressed Owls boss Brian Laws, with Laws believed to be weighing up a move for the former Liverpool youth product.

Potter has been deemed surplus to requirements at Wolves followingn promotion to the Premier League.

And he went on record in saying that he'd like to return to S6 next season, but that a deal wasn't likely to happen overnight.

But Laws loks to have had second thoughts on signing the midfield man on a permanent deal, something backed up by the signing of Tommy Miller this week.

Would love us to sign Potter - he's proved his quality with us and sounds like a different type of player from Miller. With only Macca who I would want in midfield, we're short of options if we don't do a deal to sign him

Personally i don't think we'll sign anybody who requires a fee. forget Potter , Baptiste and N'guessan, freebies and cast offs thats all were going to sign this season, we've no money.

ecco has a point, BL may have extra funds but that money goes further if you use it on wages, not transfer fees. Shame, I rate Potter and a little more depth in midfield has to be a good thing. Still need a goalscorer though (no I'm not going to shut up about that).

According to the BBC website Laws wants one permanent signing and one long term loan signing, he said one midfield and one striker by the summer. wonder who it could be ?

Potter on loan - Lita on permanent please. Failing that, I'll settle for Macheda from Man Utd on loan and some other geezer in midfield on permanent (who I've not thought of yet).

What about Fraizer campbell on a year long loan from Man utd, not done anything with spurs, but did with Hull in this league, he's got pace and scores goals, i'll have a think about a midfielder.
