In the run-up to the busy christmas football period the Owls were again being linked to much needed strikers, this time in the form of Rotherham United hitman Deon Burton, and Derby County forward Marcus Tudgay. Burton handed in a writter transfer request to the Millers, and Tudgay had already been linked with the Owls this season. Full Story: Click Here
The news came after former Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd turned down the chance to play for Wednesday, and opted for Glasgow Rangers, the team he supported as a boy. Wednesday had an offer for the SPL top scorer accepted by Killie, but the Ibrox club were always favourite to sign the 22-year-old. Full Story: Click Here
Wednesday boss Paul Sturrock suffered a further blow with the news that striker Darly Murphy had been recalled to Sunderland after spending a month on loan at Hillsborough. Although the Irishman failed to score in his outings in a blue and white shirt, his ability was there for all to see and would have been a major asset in the busy christmas period.

With transfer window due to re-open on January 1st, Sturrock had arranged for a practice match to be played behind closed doors, where he could take a look at two foreign trailists who had flown over for the game. Wednesdays bad luck continued as one arrived with an ankle injury and the other failed to impress. The search continues. Full Story: Click Here
On a positive note (shock horror!), Patrick Collins has announced that he will be returning to Hillsborough after Swindon boss Iffy Onoura showed no interest in extending the former Sunderland defenders stay with the club. Not exactly the area that Paul Sturrock needs to fill at the moment, but Collins showed signs of turning in to a good player for the club last season.
Rumours are also around that young Manchester City stopper Kasper Schmeichel will be joining the Owls as soon as Nicky Weaver returns to the club from his loan spell - which finishes on the 2nd January.
