Owls Close In On Third Signing

Owls boss Paul Sturrock is closing in on his third signing of the summer and is hoping to announce the new arrival before the end of the week.

Sturrock announced last week that he was hoping to capture the signature of a third transfer target this week, and with the rumour mill in overdrive it will be interesting to see just who arrives in S6.

The Owls boss told the official SWFC site: 'I have another discussion with another player the middle of next week, I hope we can do something with him aswell.'

Sturrock has already admitted his interest in young Aberdeen defender Kevin McNaughton but will face tough competition for the Scot's signature.

Wednesday are also in discussions with Liverpool over a possible season-long loan for former loanee Scott Carson. Carson is currently on stand-by for the England squad should any of the three squad 'keepers become injured. The Owls face competition from Championship rivals Cardiff City for the former Leeds man's services.

Rumours last week also pointed to a deal for Manchester United winger Chris Eagles - who spent six months on loan at Hillsborough last season before moving on to spend the remainder of the season at Play-Off winners Watford. A 300,000 deal was mentioned, but may now have fallen flat after the Hornets Cardiff success.

Make sure you check Vital Sheffield Wednesday throughout the week for any updates on transfer activity - and the mystery third player!

We need to wrap up a deal for a goalie, Carson or Marshall would be fantastic, McNaughton sounds a good buy but I could live without Eagles, I always thought he would run with the ball well but had little or no end product, running into nowhere rather shooting or crossing.

i so think we need a striker, talbot unproved as is corr. best going back to the saints so that leaves us with 3 strikers, i would like 4 to be honest. without j p eagles would be good though i think.
