Sheffield Wednesday boss Xisco Munoz says the club are still working hard on new player signings ahead of tomorrow’s season opener v Southampton.

It’s been a frantic month-and-a-half for Sheffield Wednesday. But as the start of the 2023/24 season draws ever closer, there’s a slight sense of optimism that Sheffield Wednesday might be able to do enough this summer to ensure they have a comfortable 2023/24 season.

There’s new signings arriving at Hillsborough with six now over the line after Bambo Diaby signed last night. Another is expected in Anthony Musaba who looks set to arrive from Monaco, and boss Munoz is hoping for a few more yet.

Speaking to The Yorkshire Post, Munoz had this to say on transfers ahead of tomorrow’s home game v Southampton:

“Now more players arrive and we need to continue to work hard together to have a good squad. Right now, the most important thing in this situation is when you have two players for every position.

“I don’t know exactly how many we can sign until the end of the windows but we’re working very hard. We have many players on our list.

“I am very happy with the players who have arrived and the players who I am sure will arrive.”

Munoz has been very open and honest in discussing the transfer situation at Sheffield Wednesday this summer. And in fairness, he’s now made a few good signings. But much more is needed before the transfer window slams shuts in September 1st.

Bodies through the door – but when?

With the new season about to start, it’ll make getting new players over the line a little bit tougher.

Munoz has league fixtures to worry about now and who might take the reins on transfer dealings remains to be seen.

But given the recent flurry of new signings, expect the Owls to have several names on their radar – like Munoz states above – and expect a few deals to be close.

If Wednesday can get several more players in and maybe some exciting Premier League players in on loan, it could prove to be a very fruitful window.

Tomorrow’s game v Southampton kicks off at 8pm.
