Wednesday are upping their bid to sign experienced Sunderland midfielder Graham Kavanagh to Hillsborough according to reports today.

Owls boss Brian Laws has made it public knowledge that he wants to strengthen his squad by bringing in loan players to help steer Wednesday off the bottom of the Championship table.

And The Daily Mail today reports Laws is looking to beat competition from Yorkshire rivals Leeds United to sign the former Republic of Ireland international to bolster his midfield.

The Dublin-born midfielder has made just ten appearances for the Black Cats since moving to the Stadium of Light in the summer of 2006 and is keen for a move to secure first team football.

Dennis Wise looked favourite to pen the midfielder to a deal at the League One club but it now looks as though Wednesday have entered the chase, with the hope that the lure of Championship football will help him opt for a move to South Yorkshire.
