Laws Targets Premiership Striker

Wednesday boss Brian Laws is set to a sign a Premiership striker when the loan transfer window re-opens next week, according to reports from BBC Radio Sheffield today.

The Owls have already signed Bristol City striker Enoch Showunni on a one-month emergency loan deal, and is keen to add more following long-term injury set-backs to Francis Jeffers and Akpo Sodje.

According to Laws, he was all set to bag the striker before the end of the January transfer window but delays saw the deal scuppered, although he insists the deal isn't dead in the water.

'The deal got delayed at the last minute but he's a quality player with a fantastic goalscoring record,' Laws told Radio Sheffield.

'It isn't dead. I hope to do something when we can make loan signings again.'

'The Whelan money will come in very handy because in the last few months I've had to wheel and deal with no money at all.'

The Owls received 500,000 for the former Republic of Ireland under-21 international, and Laws has revealed that the Owls board have promised the full amount to bolster his squad.

Derbyshire hasn't a "fantastic goalscoring record" though really, an also Blackburn let go of Gallagher on loan an said no more would be leaving, Rigters was supposed to be until Gallagher went.

Reading between the lines, King Brian says he missed out on a premiership striker at the last minute. Man City also missed out on a stiker at the last minute, could it be that Man City pulled the plug on our deal because theirs fell through. I think our target plays for Man City, how about Darius Vassell, he's never been an Errickson favourite, and would fit the bill for us.

good thinking thats a big possibility and man city still may get benjani so then that would leave vassel free to come to us

Oh right, well Stoke enquired about him a while ago, can imagine the neutral Wenger would prefer him going to a top 6 club who can actually afford all his wages then us..

I've had second thoguhts over Vassell, can't see it happening because his wages will be too high, so perhaps Connelly is the man. Heard a rumour that we are signing 3 players, one of which is Michael Johnson, the other is a midfield player.

Back down to earth lads.... whenever we hear a story about a 'big name' signing for us - the rumours start with Kluivert, Fowler, etc. Then we end up getting some relegation bound premiership player. I'm not getting excited until I see some action. Getting Walcott on loan would be awesome
