Our old adversary Neil Warnock and Crystal Palace appear to be heading the race to sign Hammers youngster Freddie Sears – attention turns to Everton’s Victor Anichebe.

Whilst the possibility of Sears coming to Hillsborough may not be completely dead in the water (though it is said he wants to remain in London), Brian Laws is reputed to also be interested in a season long loan of the Toffees’ Nigerian international.

21 year old Anichebe was out of action early last season with a knee injury which required surgery. That was only his ninth start for Everton: the lack of opportunity in the starting lineup led to a confrontational situation with David Moyes, and the Everton boss could take the opportunity of a loan period to bring Anichebe up to full match fitness before returning him to first team action at Goodison Park.

But the Owl have firepower aplenty in Tudgay, Clarke, Jeffers and Sodje.. is Laws pursuit of a further addition to the strike force due to continuing problems with Akpo Sodje’s injury rehabilitation? Or a sensible reinforcement of Wednesday’s attacking positions?
