Wednesday chairman Milan Mandaric will take a patient approach into the transfer market as he aims to bolster Gary Megson’s squad for next season.

The Owls have already added David Prutton and Rob Jones to their squad for next season but Mandaric believes it may take some time to complete Megson’s new-look squad.

‘There have been a lot of conversations between me, Gary and Paul,’ Mandaric told the Sheffield Star. ‘We are busy, and we have been trying to make approaches for players.

‘It’s going slowly. A lot of people talk, but there are not so many conclusions. Sometimes a lot more happens towards the end of June.’

The Owls have targeted eight or nine new additions as Megson plans an overhaul of his squad to make a push for promotion in npower League 1 next season.

Mandaric revealed that he’s looking at ‘six or seven’ new permanent additions with ‘a couple of loans’ bolstering the squad.

But Wednesdayites could well be forced to wait until the end of June, when players are out of contract and free to leave for other clubs, for any further news on signings.
