West Brom defender Sam Sodje is said to be in discussions with the Owls over a possible move to Wednesday before the close of the transfer deadline.

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has revealed he’s desperate to sort out the Owls’ defensive problems after two heavy defeats in their opening two Championship clashes this term.

And West Brom’s 28-year-old defender was spotted at Hillsborough watching their latest defeat to Wolves yesterday afternoon, reports BBC Radio Sheffield.

‘We’ve spoken to a club in the last few days and managed to reach an agreement and we’ve now had talks with the player,’ Laws told BBC Sport.

He added: ‘We’re making silly mistakes in games and that is costing us. I’m extremely concerned with the goals we’ve conceded and I need to address the problem.’

The Nigerian spent his early career in non-league football with Stevenage and Margate before proving himself in the Football League after being signed by Brentford and securing a £350,000 move to Reading.

Sodje featured for Albion last season after moving to the Midlands on loan for the last part of the season and played in Albion’s 1-0 play-off defeat to Derby last season.
