Owls Parkin Bid Rejected

Wednesday have had a loan move for Ipswich Town's wantaway striker Sam Parkin rejected by the Tractor Boys. Parkin is set to leave the Portman Road club but Town are looking for a permanent deal for the hitman.

Both the Owls and Queens Park Rangers made loan moves for the former Swindon Town striker before Ipswich accepted bids from Luton Town and Preston North End to take him on a permanent basis.

Owls boss Paul Sturrock is desperate to add to his attacking options following the current injury crisis at the club. Wednesday will travel to Plymouth Argyle this weekend with no fit strikers following the four-week lay-off of Steve Maclean. Marcus Tudgay, Deon Burton, Drew Talbot and Barry Corr are also missing.

Chairman Dave Allen has confirmed he will make funds available to fund the services of an on-loan striker to plug the gap. But the former Plymouth boss has said he's finding it difficult to find anyone to suit the Owls' current style of play.

Sturrock told the official SWFC website: 'It's a very difficult scenario. We want the right type and most of those we would like are in people's teams. People are very loathe to give out loans at the start of the season.'

But Sturrock doesn't expect to have anyone in place in time for the Yorkshire derby with Leeds United a week on Sunday - a worrying sign for Wednesday fans as they look to bag their first win of the new campaign.

The Scot continued: 'I've phoned around the four or five targets I would like and there are a couple thinking about it. That's as far as we've gone so far. My phone might ring this afternoon but it will be tight for this weekend and the type of player we would like I don't think will be allowed to become Cup-tied,' he explained. 'I don't think anything will happen before the Leeds game.'
