Laws: Loans A Possibility

Laws: Loans A Possibility

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has revealed he could dip in to the loan market when it re-opens on Thursday to provide defensive cover.

The Owls have been short at the back following the departure of Madjid Bougherra to Charlton recently and injuries to defenders John Hills, Richard Wood and Graham Coughlan.

And Laws has been forced to bring youth through to the first-team with 17-year-old centre-back Mark Beevers starting alongside Lee Bullen in the Owls last two matches - which both ended in defeat.

The Owls gaffer told the Sheffield Star: 'We might have to go into the short-term loan market if our injuries don't clear up as quickly as we expect; they have been slower than anticipated. We've had to give a debut to a 17-year-old but he was outstanding and he could be the future of the club.'

But Laws has insisted his major dealings will be done in the summer - with money still available to spend on a couple of 'quality players' from the sale of Bougherra.

He added: 'I've identified the players I would like to sign in the summer,' he said. 'We 're working on that immediately, and making contact with individuals who will be out of contract, as we are allowed to after January.'

We knew this weeks ago when they should have been in. It'll probably be too late when we actually do get someone.

In fairness I don't think we knew that the injuries would take longer to heal than expected. If we were financially better off I completley agree we should have picked someone up just in case, but we're not so we'll have to get on with it like usual until we can improve our finances, whether we have to do that by continuing to sell our better players or by scraping into the premiership is anyones guess!

Speaking (well, typing) as a Donny Rovers fan, what do you think our chances are of keeping Gilbert? do you rate him and need him or isn't he a first team regular?

I'm amazed Wed did not make at least one WOW signing in the window!
