Wednesday boss Brian Laws could move swiftly to replace Chris Brunt at S6, and bring in not one, but two players before the transfer deadline at the end of the month.

The Owls are expected to get £3m from the Brunt deal should the player agree terms with the Baggies, and although Owls chief executive Kaven Walker has said Laws won’t be getting the whole £3m to spend, he’ll be getting a wad to strengthen his squad.

‘We’re currently in negotiations with a club in terms of a player me and Brian went to look at in Europe two weeks ago,’ Walker told BBC Radio Sheffield.

‘There’s other players Brian is looking at in the Premier League, it’s quite possible another two players will come in before the end of August.’

Owls fans may well be worried that they could be losing not one, but two of their star men with Glenn Whelan also rumoured to be a target of Reading in recent weeks.

Former Derby man Seth Johnson has been linked as a replacement in the centre of midfield while Dennis Oliech could be the man Laws is currently in discussions with over a move to South Yorkshire from France.
