Sheffield Wednesday’s mini magician Barry Bannan has been linked with a potential January transfer back to his former club, Aston Villa, this week.

Fans shouldn’t be overly concerned with this development as it comes from the Mirror for a start, and for a second there is absolutely nothing in the report to suggest it’s not a complete piece of invention. It doesn’t even contain a single quote to back up their claim that head coach Dean Smith is a ‘big fan’ of the 28-year-old and all the other cliches they throw out.

Given the summer we had and Financial Fair Play issues, allied to the fact we have now lost three on the spin in the Championship and frustrations amongst some in the fanbase are clearly growing with Jos Luhukay, this certainly isn’t what they wanted to read at the beginning of the week though.

The report clearly misses the fact he’s not long extended his contract, nor has spoken about enjoying his time at the club and feeling settled, so I just don’t see there being any legs in this one whatsoever.
