Wednesday boss Gary Megson has revealed he’s drawn up a list of nine players he wants to bring to Hillsborough over the summer.

The Owls boss was initially looking at six new arrivals to bolster his squad over the close season but has now increased his wishlist to nine.

Six would come in on free transfers and the other three would require a fee. Megson has also revealed that some are well-known to Wednesday fans.

‘Milan and Paul have been given the names. I’m delighted that they’ve already made inroads,’ Megson told the Sheffield Star.

Former Owls loan star Neil Mellor, who bagged 20 goals for the club last season, is believed to be one of the nine, while Megson has also spoken highly of Rob Jones and Danny Batth, who also impressed on loan.

Those three would all require fees for their services, but Megson has refused to name any names.

It means the club could well be looking to bring the players in sooner rather than later, to have the majority of the close season to work togetehr as a team.
