Sheffield Wednesday have already signed 10 new players this summer. But there could be more.

And a recent report from The Star revealed that Sheffield Wednesday could target a new left-back in the coming weeks, with Reece James and Marvin Johnson the only real options in that position.

Centre-back Akin Famewo has so far played on the left of a back-four for Xisco Munoz. But with results having not been great, the Owls could soon change their tactics or their starting XI.

James is a competent player, and Johnson too – the latter though has been frozen out by Munoz and so it’s understandable that Munoz would want another name in that left-back position.

And there could be an ideal potential signing for the Owls in Leicester City’s Luke Thomas. Just today it’s been revealed that the Leicester City academy product could leave on loan this month after falling out of favour under new boss Enzo Maresca, and the 22-year-old could be an ideal potential signing for the Owls.

He has 85 total appearances to his name for the Foxes with the bulk of those coming in the Premier League. Thomas has showed so far in his career that he’s a left-back who can move forward with the ball effectively, but that he’s also a player who can defend very well too, making him potentially ideal for either a back-four or a back-five.

Former Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers previous labelled Thomas as an ‘incredible’ talent, after giving the youngster first-team exposure throughout his time at the King Power.

It looks unlikely that a Premier League team would come in for him so a Championship move might be more likely, and with Leicester and Wednesday looking set to compete at opposite ends of the table this season, the Foxes might have no issue in sending Thomas to Hillsborough.

Munoz certainly needs more bodies in this month and adding someone like Thomas who is eager to play, and who also has Premier League pedigree, could be a very shrewd move.

A good potential signing, but Wednesday would need to act fast to bring him in before September 1st.

Sheffield Wednesday return to action away at Cardiff City this weekend.
