Wednesday will be looking to bolster their squad with six new signings this month, according to chairman Milan Mandaric.

Mandaric spoke to BBC Radio Sheffield today and revealed that Owls boss Alan Irvine was hoping four permanent deals for players and two loan additions would be completed in the transfer window.

These deals could be on top of the signings of Reda Johnson, who has already signed for the Owls from Plymouth, and Leicester City defender Michael Morrison, who is all set to complete a move to S6.

The arrival of the duo is understood to be covered financially by the sale of Marcus Tudgay to Nottingham Forest.

Mandaric didn’t give any names in his interview but said that some players on the hit-list are from the Championship and some others are from foreign leagues.

Preston North End defender Sean St. Ledger is one player who has been linked with a move to Hillsborough, but hopes of a deal there could be at an end following Darren Ferguson’s departure from Deepdale.

So January is set to be a busy month for Wednesday on the transfer front, and you’ll be able to view all the rumours, links and completed deals right here on Vital Wednesday.
