Wednesday boss Alan Irvine endured a frustrating week in in the transfer market last week – so will this week’s transfer activity prove more fruitful at Hillsborough?

Irvine failed to add any new additions to his squad last week, revealing that player and agent holidays, high wages and players not keen on League One football forced him to play the waiting game in bolstering his squad further.

It came on the back of four signings in as many weeks – something that Irvine will be hoping he can repeat as he looks to have his 2010-11 squad in place before the start of pre-season training.

This week, then, will be key for the Owls boss, and will certainly be an interesting one for Wednesdayites anticipating new arrivals at S6.

Irvine has already ruled out a move for powerful striker Jon Parkin from former club Preston, a rumour that’s been doing the rounds for some time.

But he’s revealed that he could well return to Deepdale to snap-up some more of his players following the arrival of Chris Sedgwick – with defender Eddie Nolan appearing to be on Irvine’s list of potential summer recruits.

Striker Neil Mellor, too, has been linked with a summer move back to his hometown to join up with his former boss at Wednesday.

Vital expects four ot five new signings before Irvine announces his squad as ‘complete’ for the forthcoming League One campaign, and we, you, and the Owls boss will be hoping that we find out at least one of those names before the week’s out.

As always, keep posted to Vital Wednesday and will keep you up-to-date with all the transfer gossip and confirmed signings.
