Owls Chase Kavanagh

Owls Chase Kavanagh

Wednesday are upping their bid to sign experienced Sunderland midfielder Graham Kavanagh to Hillsborough according to reports today.

Owls boss Brian Laws has made it public knowledge that he wants to strengthen his squad by bringing in loan players to help steer Wednesday off the bottom of the Championship table.

And The Daily Mail today reports Laws is looking to beat competition from Yorkshire rivals Leeds United to sign the former Republic of Ireland international to bolster his midfield.

The Dublin-born midfielder has made just ten appearances for the Black Cats since moving to the Stadium of Light in the summer of 2006 and is keen for a move to secure first team football.

Dennis Wise looked favourite to pen the midfielder to a deal at the League One club but it now looks as though Wednesday have entered the chase, with the hope that the lure of Championship football will help him opt for a move to South Yorkshire.

This would be a quality signing. Experienced midfielder to play along side Whelan, leaving Watson playing at the back with Wood. And the guy can strike a good dead ball too! Chris Brunt who?? lol

Gaaah this would be a terrible signing, he has absolutely no legs left :( We need someone with a little pace to help out the defence so they don't keep getting exposed over and over again like they have been doing.......

We're crying out for experience though Placebo, not more youth!

And the ones that can run and have experience are all playing at a higher level. Pitty that.

why cant we play jonhson in the middle with whelan as holding spraying balls all over the park,jj could take 3 players out at once with a mazey run,that would give us a different option,with esijas and small on the wings,jj would open play right up ,please coment

we cant play johnson for the fact he isnt a central midfielder, if he goes on a mazy run n loses it, well be stuffed, whelan will just get swomped in the middle all the time, stupid idea
