Sheffield Wednesday boss Garry Monk has held “preliminary talks” with the club’s recruitment department about the January transfer window.

The Owls could potentially be in the hunt for some new signings to help bolster their promotion push.

Monk, formerly of Swansea City, Leeds United, Middlesbrough and Birmingham City, has made a decent start to life at Hillsborough and could be rewarded with some acquisitions this winter.

He has spoken to the Sheffield Star about January and when asked whether talks with transfers have happened yet, he said: “No, I’ve had a couple of conversations with David Downes (head of recruitment) and the club about potentially places we can strengthen but not in any great detail at this point. I have not really thought about when January comes. I will deal with it then.”

“You never know what is coming your way, you can’t predict that but in terms of us, as I said, I’ve had preliminary talks with the recruitment department and people at the club as well and we’ve got a few ideas on what we could do.

He added: “But, at this moment, that is not in any great detail or focus in terms of names or exact positions or stuff like that.”

Wednesday have been linked with Crawley Town forward Bev Lubala, though these rumours are believed to be wide off the mark.

Monk’s side take on Swansea City tomorrow at home and will be looking to rise back into the Play-Off positions.
