Owls Miss Out On Premier League Star

Owls Miss Out On Premier League Star

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has revealed that he's missed out on bolstering his squad with a Premier League striker.

Laws made a top flight goalscorer the top of his 'wanted' list before the close of the loan transfer window tomorrow.

And he was all set to get his man, revealing that the Owls would pay the full amount of his wages if need be and sacrifice another signing from a Championship club.

But any deal for the un-named player has now collapsed, leaving the Wednesday boss to turn his attentions elsewhere in a bid to strengthen his squad befor the busy Christmas schedule.

Leicester City striker DJ Campbell has been linked with a move to S6, but he could favour a move to Derby County instead.

Wednesday are reported to have made a last-gasp loan bid for the former Birmingham City striker, but Campbell is expected to make a switch to the Rams in the next 48 hours.

We have got no pulling power and neither have United. Its time for us to both to call it a day, merge with Sheffield FC and market ourselves as the worlds oldest club. Thats the only way Sheffield will see a top 5 prem club.
