Irvine Looks At Scottish Talent

Irvine Looks At Scottish Talent

Wednesday could have a Scottish invasion amongst their playing ranks next season with boss Alan Irvine looking to his homeland to bolster his squad.

The Owls boss has been working hard to improve his squad for their League One campaign next season, with numerous trips north of the border on scouting missions.

Irvine has revealed that he'd like to sign at least six players for an assault on the League One title and a swift return to the Championship next season.

And with Wednesday's current financial problems, Irvine insists Scotland could well suit the Owls down to a tee.

'I think lots of people are looking at Scotland,' he told the Sheffield Star.

There are a huge number of Scotish players in the Championship and the reason that a lot of clubs are looking at him is because they are affordable.'

That's certainly good news for Wednesday, but the Owls boss is keeping tight-lipped on his initial targets as he looks to get his squad ready for the new campaign sooner, rather than later.

What about League of Ireland, Kevin Doyle/Stephen Hunt/Shane Long/Wilo Flood, they didnt do too bad.

last year BL flew into the market and look where that got us. Let Al do the job in his own time then at least he'll be signing players he wants rather than satisfying the appetites of those who just want news.

Carl Cort... no he won't be coming. No where near good enough. Nice try though.

Don't think either of the two named mentioned would set League 1 alight- curier or cort. Wish we'd look at more potent strikers like le fondre or Simeon Jackson

There are loads of players that would benefit us but would they come down to league one with matching wages?. Not to mention we would have to get most of em out of contract as a freebie unless Tudgay and Grant are on their way.
