Highly-rated young Everton midfielder James Wallace is a target of Owls boss Gary Megson this summer, according to reports.

Megson has planned to make big changes to his squad over the close season, with up to nine new arrivals expected at Hillsborough with the aim of achieving promotion next term.

And the 19-year-old Everton midfielder, who spent the end of last season on loan with Stockport County, is on his wanted list according to the Sheffield Star.

Wallace is highly-rated at Goodison Park and he’s just penned a new one-year deal with the Premier League club, meaning Wednesday would have pay a transfer fee for a permanent switch.

It could mean the Owls opt for a season-long loan swoop with the option of a full deal at the end of the campaign.

The midfielder may have suffered relegation with Stockport from League 2 last season, but he received glowing reviews for his performances and also captained the side.

He’s made one senior appearance for Everton, in the Europe League, and has been called up for the England U19 and U20 squads.
