Widespread reports suggest that players may still arrive at S6, whereas others may be shown the exit door.
In addition to their latest recruit, Frederico Vanancio, Sheffield Wednesday have been crying out for a centre-half for what seems like an age. Joost van Aken is the most likely arrival to join up with the Owls squad before Thursdays deadline. Although nothing has been confirmed, his signature to finalise a deal would be more than welcome, sooner rather than later.
The Dutch central defender, who can also play left back is expected to arrive for a reported fee of €3-€5 million from Heerenveen, all being well.
However, due to financial fair play, does this suggest a current Sheffield Wednesday player is expected to depart?
There have been recent links with Fernando Forestieri to Fulham, as well as Jordan Rhodes with a possible move to Sunderland or Wolves. As a fan, I would be very disappointed to see either player leave the club, although after the Forestieri saga, many would argue has ran its course and it is time to cash in and move on.
If anyone was to leave, George Hirst and Lucas Joao would be great additions to any lower league club and are understood to be available on loan.
I sincerely hope that Sheffield Wednesday have finalised a deal for van Aken and I am not waiting up until midnight on Thursday to see if an agreement has been reached in time within the regulations.
The collapse of Johan Djourou a few weeks ago, plus the complications of the Jordan Rhodes deal in January have cast doubt in the minds of the Wednesday faithful that potential recruits are in jeopardy until official confirmation is revealed on the clubs website.
The Owls have recruited George Boyd and Frederico Venancio so far this summer, with Joost van Aken looking likely to arrive also, do you believe Carlos Carvalhals summer ransfer activity has been sufficient to improve on last terms fourth place finish?
