Vital Wednesday understands that former Preston North End defender Youl Mawene could become Wednesday’s latest signing within the next 48 hours.

Mawene, out of contract at Deepdale, has been linked with a move to Hillsborough throughout the summer to reunite with former boss Alan Irvine.

And sources close to Vital understand the defender has been in Sheffield this morning for a medical, and is all set to put pen-to-paper.

Owls boss Irvine has already indicated he’d like to sign Mawene – should the finances allow it.

And it seems that Wednesday could well have finalised a deal for the French centre-back this week, with Mawene set to sign should he pass his medical.
