Sheffield Wednesday transfer news: Darren Moore considering move for Premier League man
Sheffield Wednesday stepped up preparations for the next campaign by securing the services of a league player yesterday.
As confirmed by the club’s official website, the Owls have temporarily recruited Queens Park Rangers winger Olamide Shodipo.
The 24-year-old hopes to replicate the performances he produced for Oxford United at this level last season as he managed to help Karl Robinson’s side reach the play-offs by scoring 11 league goals in 40 appearances .
In addition to melting for Shodipo, Wednesday’s manager Darren Moore will also be able to take inspiration from Dennis Adeniran next season after the former Everton man decided to move to Hillsborough.
Not content with two additions to his senior squad, the 47-year-old could now be on the verge of stepping up his options as a goalie if recent reports are justified.
According to Sun reporter Alan Nixon, On Wednesday we are looking at the possibility of temporarily recruiting Burnley shooter Bailey Peacock-Farrell this summer.
It is understood that the Clarets will be ready to part ways with the Northern Ireland international who has struggled for playing time the past few seasons since moving to Turf Moor in 2019.
Limited to just four Premier League appearances in the previous campaign due to the presence of Nick Pope, the Burnley keeper might find it beneficial to join a lower league side which can offer him the chance to play regular first-team football. .
After parting ways with Keiren Westwood following their relegation from the Championship earlier this year, the Owls are currently running out of goalie options and so signing Peacock-Farrell could prove to be a wise deal.
Joshua Cole of GIVEMESPORT says …
If that report turns out to be true, it will be interesting to see if Wednesday is able to convince Peacock-Farrell to move to Sheffield.
While the keeper only managed to average a disappointing 5.77 WhoScored game rating in the top flight last season, a move to a League One side might be just what he needs at this point in the season. his career.
While it may take a while for him to adjust to life in the third level due to the fact that he’s never played in that division before, Peacock-Farrell could end up thriving under Moore’s leadership. who managed to make a good impression. on his players since he was named boss of the Owls.
Provided Moore is able to recruit some posh operators by the end of the transfer window, there is no reason the Owls cannot achieve relative success in League One with Peacock-Farrell at their sides.
