‘Doesn’t really make sense’ – Danny Rohl shares Sheffield Wednesday stance over free transfer move

Sheffield Wednesday boss Danny Rohl has confirmed he will be seeing out the season with his current squad amid a recent look into the free agent market.

Sheffield Wednesday have been open to the possibility of adding a free agent to their ranks since the closure of the transfer window. Space was left on the squad list for those additions, but time has passed and none have been made.

The Owls have been considering options though. Former Borussia Dortmund left-back Nico Schulz was on the radar and spent time training with the Championship club.

However, time has passed since that spell and now, Rohl has issued his position on free agent moves.

Speaking to the media ahead of this weekend’s clash with Ipswich Town (as relayed by the Yorkshire Evening Post), the Sheffield Wednesday manager made it clear that he’s happy with the options at his disposal and no targets to sign before the summer will be considered. He said:

“For me it doesn’t really make sense to bring a free agent in because they need a little bit of time to adapt and it means they haven’t played in the past for a club, sometimes they didn’t train.

“Of course I’m looking for new players for the new season but not this season. I’m really happy with the culture, everybody’s connected so I’ll keep going with this group, this squad.”

Who is this?

Working with the current squad

While depth in some key areas might not go amiss, Rohl has been able to work brilliantly with what he’s had at Sheffield Wednesday. And still, those who were left off the squad list can be registered once more, filling the vacant spots left.

Signing a free agent for the sake of it wouldn’t be of all that much benefit for the Owls. If they’ve been out of the game for a while, by the time they’ve gained fitness and settled into the Wednesday ways, the end of the campaign won’t be far away.

For now, it seems logical to work with the current crop at Hillsborough.

As far as future recruitment is concerned though, Rohl will be hoping to have some names in mind for what will be an important summer window. Their plans will depend on how the relegation fight pans out though, with the side sat 23rd in the Championship table and a point off safety.
