Oliech Set For Owls

Oliech Set For Owls

Owls boss Brian Laws is set to run the rule over out-of-favour Nantes striker Dennis Oliech by offering him a one-week trial according to his agent.

Laws is desperate to add a new striker to his ranks ahead of the new season and is known to be scouring Europe for new talent to bolster his attacking options in time for the opening day clash at Ipswich.

And the player's agent, Jean-Christophe Thouvenel, has revealed to Setanta.com that his player will be swapping France for South Yorkshire before the end of the week to undergo a trial with the Owls at Middlewood Road.

'Dennis Oliech will start a trial period with Sheffield Wednesday next Thursday or Friday,' Thouvenel told setanta.com.

'I am trying to obtain him a Visa and I plan to send him there pretty soon.'

But the strikers stats don't make for impressive reading for Wednesday fans, despite his international honours with Kenya, after the hitman scored just four goals in a one-and-a-half year stint with French club Nantes, who were relegated last season.

And to add to this, we've just lost 2-0 to Oldham. Anyone notice a link between Brunt going and us being *****. Morale low, by any chance? It's lower now. I'm genuinely embarrassed to support Wednesday.

He's would be a great addition to the owls squad, seen a few goals of his and looks like a carbon copy of Kenwyne Jones. Tall, quick and can score too. He played 20 odd games for nantes and scored 4, but at prevous clubs he has been top scorer twice. this outa make you intrested http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JKalY-XFOjs . Owls fans have can start too believe again!!!!!!!!!!!!

I watched that clip on youtube, looks ok, might need more convincing though. What really shocked me with that clip was Charlie from Eastenders giving an interview in french at the end

Maybe not as bad as first thought. Only two goals in 23 games last season is still a concern. Okay, Nantes went down but he's not likely to be a 20 goal a season man. Glad we've got him on trial and not just bought him. We do need signings at the moment though, just to boast morale around the club.
