Leeds United duo eyed: The 8 players linked with Sheffield Wednesday so far this summer

Sheffield Wednesday will be in the market for some fresh faces this summer and plenty of players have already been linked with the Owls.

Sheffield Wednesday are embarking on an important summer transfer window as they look too climb up the Championship table under popular boss Danny Rohl.

The German guided the Owls to safety against the odds and after committing his future to the club on a long-term deal, the hope will be that they can kick on with the help of a strong summer.

The transfer window hasn’t even begun yet, but the rumour mill has been spinning at some rate with a whole host of players linked with moves to Hillsborough.

Here, we highlight the 8 players linked with Sheffield Wednesday so far this summer and assess the chances of a deal getting done…

Ian Poveda

Starting off with one of the many recent loan stars linked with a Sheffield Wednesday return, it has been said that the Owls are keen to bring winger Poveda back to the club.

As noted in The Star’s report though, there is rival interest from Championship sides and teams overseas.

How likely is a deal?

Given the success Poveda found at Hillsborough and how highly Rohl rates him, you have to feel the Owls have a good chance of bringing him in when his Leeds United deal expires.

Keenan Carole

Another Leeds United prospect linked, it emerged that winger Carole had headed to the Whites’ Yorkshire rivals for a trial as a summer exit beckons.

How likely is a deal?

If he has done enough to impress at Sheffield Wednesday, you would think there will be few obstacles to a deal. Whether or not he’s earned a deal with the Owls though, it remains to be seen.

James Beadle

After a fruitful loan for the 19-year-old goalkeeper, Sheffield Wednesday have been heavily linked with a Beadle reunion. He arrived in January and took the starting spot from Cameron Dawson, keeping eight clean sheets in 19 Championship games.

How likely is a deal?

It has been said that Brighton will send him out again, although the wait for them to appoint a new manager could delay at Hillsborough return. Sheffield Wednesday remain in talks despite pursuing Ben Hamer and in good time, you feel this one has a good chance of being finalised.

Ike Ugbo

The last of the loan players linked with an Owls return is striker Ike Ugbo, whose goals proved crucial in their bid to survive following a half-season stint with Cardiff City prior.

How likely is a deal?

It was reported that Sheffield Wednesday could strike a cut price deal if Ugbo’s parent club ESTAC Troyes were relegated.

Their drop to the French third-tier has since been confirmed, but with two years left on his deal, he may not be cheap regardless. The possibility of a cheaper deal could put other suitors on alert, so there could be a bit of a battle for his signature.

This might not be the easiest deal to do despite his loan success.

Karamoko Dembele

Sheffield Wednesday were rumoured to have contacted Stade Brestois over the possibility of a deal for Dembele, who heads back to France after a starring loan spell with League One side Blackpool.

How likely is a deal?

Dembele would be an eye-catching signing on a permanent or a loan. However, he’s said to have plenty of interest, so even if Stade Brestois do let him out, it could be that he heads elsewhere.

Who is this?

Charlie Goode

Another report from The Star has said Goode’s name could come under consideration at Hillsborough as he prepares to become a free agent at the end of his Brentford deal.

How likely is a deal?

On a free transfer, Goode would be a shrewd signing. If Sheffield Wednesday were to chase him, you have to feel this is a doable deal, but it remains to be seen whether their initial interest develops into anything more serious.

Ben Hamer

As touched on before, it was claimed by BBC Sheffield’s Rob Staton that departing Watford goalkeeper Hamer is poised to link up with the Owls.

How likely is a deal?

This looks like a move that is just a matter of time. He’ll be a smart and experienced addition to Rohl’s goalkeeper department.

Michael Baidoo

Last but not least and most recently, reports in Sweden claimed that Sheffield Wednesday are among the numerous sides across England and Europe eyeing a potential deal for Elfsborg’s versatile midfielder Michael Baidoo.

How likely is a deal?

Middlesbrough, Hull City, Luton Town and a host of European clubs are all said to be keen.

So, if Wednesday’s interest is genuine, they’ll have a fight on their hands trying to get a deal done.
