Wednesday will battle it out with 3 other championship clubs for Keith Andrew.
Also if antonio deal falls through, Barry bannan of Aston villa could be drafted in on loan

Believable3 Unbelievable10

Bannan gets a game at villa

Agree11 Disagree0

Andrews would be a quality signing, perfect compliment for Semedo in CM.

Agree6 Disagree4

Andrews would be a good signing not quite premiership class but a top championship player

joe mattock as signed for us. dj wants 1 more center half 2 midfielders and 2 strikers. source dave jones himself in a interview. and said madine is staying !!!!!!!!! fact

Believable7 Unbelievable1

Lets hope its an attacking mid, 2 fast creative wingers, and someone who can compliment madine - a younger ryan lowe for example

Agree5 Disagree0

If it was Rob Stanton interview think he implied more than above. You can expect 7 or 8 more to come in before start of season.

Agree1 Disagree1

DJ also said something interesting about Mattock during interview that he had not spoken to him for 10 days before he signed which suggests the club are doing a lot of business that we havent a clue about only speculation Mattock not mentioned until a couple of days before he signed

Agree1 Disagree0

Who would u choose to start though , reda or mattock?

Agree0 Disagree0

DJ only needs to give his wish list out, the money men do the negotiations!

Agree0 Disagree0

Reda over Mattock every time.

Those who have listened to DJ interview with Rob Stanton. Do you agree when Harry Maguire name mentioned and that he was a SWFC fan there was a little chortle from DJ in the background.
I wonder if the rumours regarding him are true, one person who gets some good info told me we were negotiating for him and Butterfield, also saw it on here, I had doubts but begining to believe.

Believable8 Unbelievable3

Harry Maguire did an interview where he actually said the words, "I didn't really support a team to be honest, I lived in Sheffield, I followed both teams but didn't really support anyone, Obviously I am a Sheffield United fan now." Therefore can all the lies about him supporting the Owls go to bed, PLEASE? If he comes to us it won't be because of support, it'll be because of better football, or higher wages, which is what all players go for.

Are we still interested in Gary Roberts?

Believable3 Unbelievable8

Great player on his day shocking when not do you take a gamble or not

Agree3 Disagree3

He's going to mega bucks millers

Agree1 Disagree3

I think we should take a gamble on Roberts it's not like we'd have to pay a fee and he can create goals aswell as score them.

Agree0 Disagree3

Millers were after mcdonald and robets but cannot afford wages i think it was on rob staton's twitter, how can they not afford that? In agreat position now UTO

Jacob Butterfield will meet with Wednesday officials next week. No premiership club have responded to enquiries from agent so looking at Championship options. Fee will be alot lower than Barnsley want.

Believable6 Unbelievable2

True from what i´ve heard! Keith Hill was his manager at Rochdale and rates him highly. id take 350k for him, we paid 400k and that goal against the pigs was worth 50k ! and the 3rd bid for Maguire was confirmed by Staton on Twitter. good info mate and with sources aswell! nice one better than half of these tools posting utter s+++

Wednesday to make a third bid for maguire.

Believable5 Unbelievable4

Hope not he's pants

Agree1 Disagree5

No more cash for Maguire his price has to come down.
Next two signings will be centre halves, Gardner still likely, other target under wraps will either have played at Championship level or young player with substantial potential to play at this or higher level. Hobbs is aname mentioned along with H Maguire.

Agree0 Disagree0

Have made a third bid for maguire*

Anthony Gardner and Chris McGuire both to finally sign next week. Wednesday have also set their sights on highly rated youngsters Gary Mackay-Steven (Dundee United), Daniel Kearns (Peterborough) and Tom Bradshaw (Shrewsbury).

Believable4 Unbelievable3

I went to Aberystwyth University when Tom Bradshaw played for them. He was defo a cut above the rest of the pitch and he was only 17 at the time. Not a great league by far but he blew the others out the water.

Agree0 Disagree0

All good young prospects and 2 of the 3 are possibilities ?
But Kearns is happy, highly thought of and signed 3yr contract with Peterborough - no chance.
Leads me to think this post is probably a stab in the dark ?

Ogrady set to leave the owls

Believable6 Unbelievable2

Marvin Emnes to sign for Wednesday from Middlesborough? I hope so, he's the striker we need, fast, skillful and a good finisher. If not I'd love to see Jozy Altidore at Wednesday but he would cost AT LEAST 3 mil.

Agree1 Disagree3

Jozy Altidore was useless when he was on loan at Hull.

Macguire to sign (he was at hillsborough yesterday) , two premiership sides interested in gary madine, one of them is reading! Wednesday still very much in the running for antonio, expect developments during july! Anyone following twitter check cecil nyonis tweets, he says to antonio "see you at training bruv" make of that what you will!

Believable6 Unbelievable2

7th of July,

Agree4 Disagree1

Maguire and Madine rumours nonsense. If you believe them you probably also think the national side will win the Euros.

Agree4 Disagree3

Madine has a court case in July no one will bid or buy before this date, so rubbish.

Agree2 Disagree2

Why would Premier League clubs come in for Madine when he hasn't even proved he can play at Championship level, give your head a bang sunshine.

Agree2 Disagree1

Rhodes and powell ain't proved themselves either dummy, it's called buying potential

Agree1 Disagree1

Rhodes......Powell but to name 2 recent examples of players recieving interest from Premiership teams.............Its called buying prospects, I think you need to be giving you're head a shake

Agree2 Disagree0

John stead from huddersfield to blackburn a few years back. why wouldnt a prem club take a punt on a L1 proven striker? Its not going to cost them a lot.

Agree0 Disagree0

Nick Powell to Man united as well

With mattock, kirkland and lee already signed. How many more players do you all think we will get and who? Personnaly I think we need 1-2 cb's 2 wingers 1 cm 1-2 strikers and poss another gk. Gardner, koumas, antonio, mackay-steven, treacy, ranger, maguire all names I have heard and all seem realistic.

Believable4 Unbelievable2

I doubt we'll be interested in Koumas and I think we need at least 2 new strikers maybe Maguire or Ranger and a proven goal scorer at Championship level.

Agree3 Disagree1

DJ is working his way through team sheet, firstly goalkeeper (No 1 position) then right back (2) hen left back (3). Next will be No 4 so either centre back or midfield depending on how he numbers his team.

Agree3 Disagree1

I was told 8 - 10 new faces for first team squad. Think it will be 2 CB's especially if Beevers leaves. 1 CM is a certainty. Two wide men if JJ stays otherwise may be 3. Two strikers on assumption O'Grady leaves. He wants cover in every position. Latest signing suggests Bennett, Reynolds and Daniel Jones will all be allowed to leave.

Agree3 Disagree1

Not sure how others feel but the signing of Mattock to my mind shows real intent on getting out of this division.
Reda Johnson was one of our two best outfield players last season and when he was missing it was noticeable. Also when Bywater was signed thought he improved team and results certainly improved. I suspect many Wednesday fans were comfortable with these two players in the positions they played last season. The fact that DJ has brought players in who play in these positions indicates he wants to improve the team in all areas, so I suspect side will be improved throughout and no one will have safe berth.

Agree1 Disagree1

In Star report indicates Jones looking for 2 centre backs. Also stated he will be now turning attention to midfield and attack. We will have new starting XI on day one of new season.

How come Wednesday can afford to buy players and Leeds can't .i would like to see sw well this season and I hope Leeds can do well to.

Believable3 Unbelievable4

There are a couple of reasons for this, number one, we don't have Ken Bates in charge, we have a chairman who likes to spend money improving the team not the ground/own bank balance.

And number two Leeds are in the middle of a takeover so are unable to sign players, or sell players for that matter until talks are complete.

Agree3 Disagree2

I do not share your opinion with regard Leeds doing well would like to see them relegated but think this is unlikely. For years Wednesdays hands were tied with debt, now this burden has been lifted we are once again free to sign players who can boost the club. This will in turn bring back those fans who were disillusioned with the continued downward spiral. Mandaric realises you have to invest to raise the club to a level where he will be able to recoup his investment and pass on to a wealthier person than him.
Leeds have been taken over by a complete opportunist whose sole intention is to make money and to do this without substantial investment. He was lucky at Chelsea in he had two individuals who came into the club pumped millions in and made him a rich man when he eventually sold his shareholding to the second of them. I presume he hoped lightning would strike twice but once you have pulled this sort of move once you can not do it again.

Agree2 Disagree2

It isn't easy to say about them but it probably would be good for Yorkshire to have Leeds plus us and the piggies in the Prem. The problem with Leeds is there fans. No sooner had Leeds issued a statement about potential investment and loads of them appear on the net bragging and rubbishing other clubs and talking as if they'd already been bought by a billionaire. this at a time when very little is known about any potential buyer or investor. Theres not much I'm grateful to Dave Allen for but thank god it was clash of the egos when Bates wanted to buy us and he saw him off.
