Steve Bruce intends to move Sheffield Wednesday’s academy away from Middlewood Road.
Wednesday’s training ground is home to various Owls sides from the first-team down.
But in his 10 days as manager at Hillsborough Bruce has already noticed the problems this can cause – with his senior squad alone over 30 players strong.
And in quotes published by the Sheffield Star on Monday, the 58-year-old said: “I’ve spoken to the academy about looking at a different site but first and foremost we need to get a team together.
“Hopefully I can be the one to crack it.
“When you look at what we’ve got here for the academy site, there’s not a lot of room.
“That again is one for the future and there’s nothing better than bringing your own through.”
Wednesday previously announced plans for a new community centre on former Presto Tools site, further down Penistone Road towards Neepsend.
However, the project is understood to have been placed on the back-burner, despite being given the go-ahead to start in 2012.
It is unclear if the Owls had any intention of using the facility themselves.
