Owls boss targets loan swoop

Owls boss targets loan swoop

Wednesday boss Gary Megson is looking to bolster his squad with at least one loan addition before next Thursday's transfer deadline.

Megson is determined to bolster his attacking options and is understood to have failed in a bid to sign Reading winger Michail Antonio on loan, but has turned his attentions elsewhere to an undisclosed player and is awaiting a response.

But no deal will be done before tomorrow's npower League One clash at Tranmere Rovers.

Megson told the Sheffield Star: 'We`ve gone for another player; the manager of the club seems okay with it and the player seemed okay with it when they spoke to him'

The loan transfer deadline ends next Thursday and Wednesday won't be able to add any further players to their squad from then until January 1 2012.

The Owls boss is also looking for another centre-back to come in and is keen on Blackpool defender Miguel Llera, who's currently on-loan at Brentford until the start of December. A move for him could come in the January transfer window.

Would love that! Dreaming that we secure him for the rest of the season gain promotion and he stays for another year - pretty sure Stoke are going to sign him up long term, but next season in the Championship might be the next logical step for his development........loan wise a quality hard working wide player to replace a long running joke the is jermain Johnson!!! Also cover at CB and keep Batth and Bywater too.

In the meantime I think we can all rest assured that GM is on the case. He's determined to get us promoted and will leave nothing to chance. If Marshall goes back to Stoke then it's because his loan agreement didn't allow for an extension. And if that's the case I'd expect GM to already have one eye on a replacement. Roberts perhaps? We'll see soon enough.

I'm with you OurMaurice frankly he may not be a fashionable manager - but its a long time since I've seen us look good in any way. Its almost hard to remember the humiliating defeats and desperation of last season: particularly the surrenders at home: but we really shouldn't............. Wonders have been worked
