Three wingers Pulis could target after Owls January hint, including Andre Green

Sheffield Wednesday manager Tony Pulis says he will look to address his side’s lack of wide options during the upcoming January transfer window, Yorkshire Post report.

Pulis’s comments came after the 1-0 defeat at Preston North End.

In his first game in charge of the Owls, Pulis was restricted for choices on the wing with Kadeem Harris suspended following his dismissal against Bournemouth.

A lack of creativity has been an issue for Wednesday all season.

And here we look at three players Pulis could target when the transfer window opens.

Andre Green:

The Sun on Sunday (4 October; Page 59) claimed both Sheffield Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers were keen on Green following his release from Aston Villa.

There was initial confusion over his contract. Green extended his deal with Villa to allow him to remain on loan at Charlton Athletic at the back end of last season.

But he took to Twitter in the summer to post his goodbyes to Villa.

The Athletic now say Green is biding his time waiting for the right offer to come along.

The Owls would be wise to revisit their reported interest in the 22-year-old.

Yannick Bolasie:

Bolasie is currently stuck at Everton after missing out on their 25-man registered squad.

The rapid winger was on he verge of a move to Middlesbrough on loan on deadline day, but for some reason or another, the deal ultimately fell through.

Now, Bolasie will surely look ahead to a January switch as he needs regular football.

Pulis knows all about the DR Congo international during his time at Selhurst Park. Pulis guided Palace to safety in 2013-14, with Bolasie playing a major role.

Bolasie later joined Everton in 2016 for a reported £28 million fee.

Josh Bowler:

If Pulis is restricted to the loan market and perhaps seeks a cheaper option than Bolasie, then his Everton teammate Josh Bowler could be another option.

The 21-year-old winger is highly rated at Goodison Park after impressing at youth level.

Bowler was previously on the books of Queens Park Rangers before joining Everton, and he returned to the Championship on loan with Hull City last season.

He was expected to move back out on loan during the summer transfer window, but he later required surgery on his hip which ruled him out until December.

With Bowler likely to be fit again for January, he could be a good option for the Owls.
