Wednesday are understood to be considering a swoop for Derby County winger Lee Croft.
The former Norwich City man would be allowed to leave Pride Park after falling down the pecking order under Rams boss Nigel Clough and his availability has alerted Gary Megson, the Owls boss, to his services.
Megson is hopeful of completing a deal to sign Leicester City winger Lloyd Dyer but 26-year-old Croft could be an option if that fails, or if Megson still thinks he needs to strengthen his options on the wing.
The former Manchester City man didn't play for Derby last season and was loaned out to npower League One side Huddersfield Town, but he made just six appearances, including a sending off in Town's 3-0 win at Colchester United.
One Wednesday old boy looking for a new club is former skipper Tommy Miller, who was released at the end of last season.
The midfield has turned down a number of approaches so far, the latest being League Two side Bradford City, but Huddersfield Town are also thought to be keen on his services.
Meanwhile, Owls boss Megson has confirmed he needs a new striker at the club as soon as possible, whether that be Neil Mellor or someone else.
Mellor, who spent last season on loan with the Owls, is the prime target for Megson but the Owls boss could turn his attentions elsewhere if a deal isn't sorted soon.
'The Mellor thing is taking a long time. Sooner or later we`re going to have to move on and bring somebody else in,' he told the Sheffield Star.
'We can't start the season just with the forwards that we have.'
