Here at Vital Sheffield Wednesday we understand that Owls midfielder Yoann Folly could soon be making his way out of the club with a move to Scunthorpe United.

The Frenchman was frustrated at the lack of first team opportunities under Brian Laws at Hillsborough last term and the Owls boss could see his departure raise some much needed funds to strengthen elsewhere.

And it’s thought that Scunthorpe United are considering tabling a bid for the midfielder, with Leeds United hitman Jermaine Beckford also on their wanted list as they look to strengthen following promotion to the Championship.

Folly found himself down the pecking order at S6 under Laws, often being played in defence as cover, with Kenny Lunt, and now Steve Watson the more favourable central midfield positions for Laws.

The Frenchman has also been linked with Swindon Town under boss Paul Sturrock, who brought Folly to Hillsborough during his reign here after impressing during his short stint at Southampton.
