Wednesday boss Brian Laws has rejected claims that French under-21 Elliot Grandin is set for a season-long loan spell with the Owls in the Championship.

The Marseille youngster, said to be being tracked by Spanish giants Barcelona, was heavily linked with a loan move to Hillsborough by the French media towards the end of last week.

But, following the Owls’ 0-0 friendly stalemate with Hull City on Saturday, Laws revealed there was no truth in the rumours linking the Frenchman with S6.

He’s still looking to bolster his attack with a further option before the big Championship kick-off in two weeks’ time, but he left no clues as to how close a new addition would be.
