‘Bound to be’ other clubs montoring Sheffield Wednesday loan stars, trusted reporter says

Sheffield Wednesday loan stars Ike Ugbo and Ian Poveda are ‘bound’ to have other clubs monitoring their form, reporter Dom Howson has said.

Sheffield Wednesday have done brilliantly to revive their survival hopes under Danny Rohl. And, key to their improved form of late has been the recruitments made in the German’s first transfer window in charge at Hillsborough.

The two players to have caught the eye the most are attackers Ike Ugbo and Ian Poveda. Playing as a striker, Ugbo has notched five goals in seven Championship games while the tricky Poveda has managed one assist, proving a constant threat.

Unsurprisingly, their early success with Sheffield Wednesday has seen calls for Ugbo and Poveda to be signed permanently.

The Star reported that the Owls are keen on revisiting their previous interest in a long-term deal for Leeds United loanee Poveda, but reporter Dom Howson has now said that other clubs are ‘bound to be monitoring’ both him and Ugbo amid their impressive form.

The current focus

If Sheffield Wednesday are able to stave off relegation to League One, the chances of keeping Ugbo and Poveda should increase. And, if the Owls could pick anyone to try and persuade the influential duo to stay, it would be adored manager Rohl.

However, time will tell how the promotion fight pans out. Regardless, it would be down to owner Dejphon Chansiri to finance the deals, and given the volatile situation with his ownership, that’s not an easy matter to rely on.

For now though, the full focus is on the survival fight. Wednesday sit 23rd in the Championship table, with three points separating them and safety. Three wins in four games has closed the gap, but wins for Huddersfield Town and QPR mean Rohl and co are still in the mire.
