Coke set to complete Bury loan move

Wednesday midfielder Giles Coke is set to complete a loan move to League One rivals Bury today, according to reports.

Coke has struggled for first team appearances at Hillsborough so far this season, failing to start in the league and seeing his run-outs limited to cup competitions.

He featured in last night's Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat against Bradford City but is down the pecking order at the club this term.

The former Motherwell man, who arrived at Hillsborough last summer, should get more game time at Bury, although it's unclear whether the move is with a view to a permanent signing.

The Owls and Bury have been locked in transfer talks in the last few days, with Bury striker Ryan Lowe making the switch in the other direction yesterday, although it's unclear as to whether the deals are connected.

I would say that it's very likely the deals are connected and that Bury will not be paying much if anything for Coke's services... Think a loan period will do him and Beavers good. I'm just hopeful that the signings aren't over for the SWFC, I fear there wont be anymore but I would love to see someone the quality of Marshall on the other wing. UTO

Think he still has a lot to offer. A better midfielder than JO'C and also has the capability to play outwide. Good look Giles, Megson will regret this.

Cant believe we're letting beevers leave on loan: by December he'll have 6 months left on his deal and end up leaving for s0d all. He may have been having a poor time of it of late but he's only 21 we should hand him a new deal now. Loyalty should be shown - He's a player with a big future.....

WTF!!!! Beevers beats both Reda and Reynolds hands down and it's too early to even think about Kasnic. Don't think this is a good move unless it is simply a bit of gameplay for the lad. Sayin that if we have injuries I would rather Beeves comes in over Reda......

Shouldn't let coke or beevers go. Both would start if there was an injury to a centre back or mid respectivley, and I'm with 4everowl. One more winger on watch us go!!!! Come on megson, get one more gem sorted, was cheered up no end with ryan lowe, put a cherry on top please

Just seen Cokes an emergency loan with option of a recall after 28 days: Why not the same deal with Beevers??!

hope coke gets some games and comes back ready to go. beavers needs to prove himself again cos he's been nowhere near good enough for the last 18 months, he hasn't progressed, gets out of position too often and needs to work on his distribution. hopefully he will learn on the mk dons time instead of ours

I know this is un-related but did anyone else notice that Jason Koumas has been released and is a free agent?! I know he's been dogged with injuries but would love to see him at the club for the season to offer something else if required. I know he's another 32 year old but his quality shines through. If add-ons were linked to his time on the pitch I don't think he'd cost us a great deal and being he's a free agent a deal can still be done... UTO

Well our wage budget must be heavily reduced so there may be room for negotiation on a Koumas deal. Ryan Lowe can't be on anything like what Mellor was looking for and Kasnik and Uchechi must be on peanuts!

Well no signing fee must be a big bonus and I think having the option of putting a creative player on the ball in the centre of the park may be an option we need against some teams... In regards to Uchechi I can't see why he's not been given more outings as an out and out striker... I thought the Bradford game was a great chance for him to play up top being that we had no other options and being that we had so much time on the ball it would have been nice to see if he could have done anything with it in front of goal... being that Clinton proved yet again that he can't play up top on his own.

It's clear that Uchechi is not a winger!

Yup... totally agree, that is now the weakness in the squad with no movement in the wings and no drop off striker our two stoppers in the centre have no easy out balls to play. Really hope that Marshall continues to play well and that JJ is back soon and able to play 90 minutes. (Jones once fit and Sedgwick as back ups)... this situation is far from ideal though. Fingers crossed after Charlton and the Dons we can have some games won so we can experiment up front trying combinations of Madine, O'Grady, Lowe and Uchechi... may as well have a proper look at him in his chosen position before he goes back. (Hopefully we can get some Loan wingers in to have a look at with an eye to purchase in the next window.)

Good player, I think he'll be back at Hillsborough soon enough though.

I'm sure there are those of you out there who think Gary Megson and I are related and that's probably because I'm quick to jump to his defence. Truth is I firmly believe he's the right man to steer us through this next period in our club's history and despite the odd disappointing result his words and actions continue to fuel my optimism. After a week that began with our second league win on the bounce, some movement in the transfer market and our exit from another minor cup competition, I'm again reassured by his honesty, his comments to the media regarding squad numbers and wage reductions etc. I was also impressed a few weeks back when he chose to criticize his players' performance, describing the standard required of anyone representing Sheffield Wednesday. Anyone who's operated at management level in any business might agree that the stick can be a more effective tool than the carrot, the trick comes with how and when to use it. GM didn't waste any time. He's not here to watch the rot set in again, he's here to get this club promoted and it appears the players responded in the right manner. A quote for you: "His strength as a manager was his ability to command the respect of the players...inspire them to extend themselves and play to their full potential...A hard taskmaster and a tough disciplinarian, direct and determined...whose no-nonsense attitude left no doubts about what would happen if he didn't get what he wanted." Who's that then? Big Jack? Wilko? Cloughie? All managers GM has worked under during his career? No, those words were used to describe Harry Catterick, one of Wednesday's most celebrated managers and the last man to give us a title (albeit the old 2nd Division). It's no surprise that one of the players who cites Catterick's influence as having such a major effect on his career was one Don Megson. Coincidence? Well what do you think?
