Owls Bid For Defender

Owls Bid For Defender

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has revealed he's keen to strengthen the defence following last week's mauling against Ipswich - and has put a bid in for a mystery defender.

The Owls gaffer was left fuming at the comedy defending which saw Wednesday get off to a disastrous start at Portman Road last Saturday and is aiming to add a new name to the back four before the close of the transfer window.

'In defence, we're looking to strengthen that area... we've made an offer for a player. We're trying to make the squad as strong as we possibly can,' he told BBC Radio Sheffield.

'Maybe the reality has hit us against Ipswich, that we need to be a bit stronger.'

Laws dropped club captain and centre-back Lee Bullen from the Owls' victory over Rotherham United in the Carling Cup last week and also brought youngster Tommy Spurr back in to the side at the expense of Peter Gilbert.

And although Steve Watson and Richard Hinds can both play at the back, Laws is hopeful over adding a new defender to his ranks in light of the recent form in the Owls back line.

Well we certainly need strengthening at the back, so lets hope this comes off soon

I hope you have more luck than us. We've been waiting seven years to sign a centre back. And we're still waiting...

Anyone with a bit of pace will do, then play watson in midfield with Whelan and the new guy and Woody at the back.

It is another lie? You never know, im confused. Ive heard Kaven Walker saying we'l get 2 midfielders before August 31st, using Watson at back. Now wer getting a defender. Arsenal have got alot of defenders, how about Justin Hoyte on loan for a season?????

Whelan will also be frustrating the board as they dont want to lose a player of his talent as they did with Maclean, on a free.

I wonder what the source is for this? I wonder if he was planning to get a midfielder but has realised that Bullen really isn't up to the job so has changed his mind. We do really need strengthening at the back though.
