With the Owls facing Newcastle United’s U21s in the Papa John’s Trophy at 7pm tomorrow, Darren Moore may not have even left Hillsborough by the time the window closes at 11pm – which may suggest all work that they are doing could be done before that. to attach.
It’s been a busy window in general for SWFC having brought in a slew of new players as part of Moore’s summer recruiting drive, and there have been a few hints that they may not have finished yet.
Information indicating a blow “of horror” for Massimo L …
We took a look at various aspects of the window for Wednesday – including what has been said, what they’ve done so far, and what could be in the works before 11 p.m. on August 31.
What did Moore say?
Speaking after Morecambe’s loss, he said: “We will look at all areas of the squad and if we can improve it we will improve it… Some areas are more important than others so we will see this. they are.
“I’m not going to say yes (SWFC will sign new players). I never say that, because I’m too gray now to know that there are so many different parameters that go into a player’s signing.
“If we get it, or if we get it, or not at all, it won’t be for lack of trying.”
Necessary may be a slight exaggeration, as Moore seems to be relatively happy with the squad he has put together over the summer, but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t be willing to add to his ranks if the right one player – and the right opportunity – presented itself.
The Star understands that another attacker is at the top of the list in terms of where Moore would like to strengthen himself the fastest, and that he is hoping to try and do something before the window closes. Only time will tell, however, if he is able to do so.
Despite a few calls for another center-back from sections of the fanbase, the Owls boss suggested he was happy with the options they already had.
Who have they signed so far?
It’s been very busy for the Owls for sure… They have signed a total of 13 senior players so far – 11 of which have made their debuts so far.
The new hires consist of Bailey Peacock-Farrell, Jaden Brown, Lewis Gibson, Jack Hunt, Dennis Adeniran, George Byers, Lewis Wing, Marvin Johnson, Olamide Shodipo, Theo Corbeanu, Sylla Sow, Florian Kamberi and Lee Gregory – while the young David Agbontohoma was signed for U23 from Lee Bullen.
There could be a few exits before the deadline, but it doesn’t look like they are in danger of losing any senior players just yet.
Youngsters like Charles Hagan have sparked interest, and it is hoped that Josh Dawodu, Liam Waldock and Ciaran Brennan could leave – even in the short term – in search of more consistent playing time.
Also, a reminder that free agents and National League teams are not linked by the window, so closing the window does not necessarily mean the end of trading on Wednesday.
