Owls Holmes In On Target

Owls Holmes In On Target

With the close of the transfer window just days away the Owls continue to be linked with a number of players to bolster the squad - this time it's Derby's Lee Holmes.

The winger has long been a target of former Owls boss Paul Sturrock at Swindon Town but reports from the Western Daily Press are claiming that Wednesday boss Brian Laws is ready to hijack the deal and bring the Ram to Hillsborough.

The Press reports Laws made an enquiry in to the winger on Tuesday and he could be prepared to offer the winger a lucratrive deal to bolster his attacking options following the sale of Chris Brunt to West Brom last week.

Holmes has already held talks with League One Swindon over a possible six-month loan deal with the club but a move to play in the Championship could prove too attractive to turn down.

The midfielder came through the youth ranks at Pride Park and has made 26 first team starts for Billy Davies' men, notching two goals along the way, and has enjoyed loan spells at Swindon and Bradford City in recent seasons.

Sounds and absolute cracker. Which Champions league qualifier did he play in? 26 starts 2 goals, wow Brian, that will fill the hole left by Brunt. NOT. Leave it Brian, dont panick buy if thats all you can come up with, give the younger players a chance, then re-evaluate in January. Buy a left back. We looked perfectly capable of scoring a hatfull of Sunday, but equally capable of conceeding a hatfull +1

Oh, has Sodje made his mind up yet? Cos if he's not coming we need a centre half. Tip for Brian, take Migel Pearson with you when you look for one, he might know what we are looking for. You came back with Hinds last time.

Well if he is willing to drop 2 division, he cannot be the greatest player in the world. So, like everyone else is saying why bother. Save the money and get the defence sorted out.

We need a winger, because Small and Johnson aren't going to stay injury/suspension free. However, this guy does not sound like the one for us.

another proven quality player?!?!?!? save the cash , signing lower league players means we will be playing in the lower leagues simple as, I dont know why the hell we look at dross like this , sometimes I don't think laws has his mind on the quality we need in this league and concentrates on players who are ok in leagues 1 and 2, we havent got any money to spend so don't waste what little we do have on sub standard players, give the young kids a chance they can't be much worse than signing nobody's and at least I bet they will want to play for the club

if he's as good as the other lower league players weve developed like Jermaine Johnson and Wade Small, he'd be welcome by me.
