Sheffield Wednesday remain active in the transfer market, with a left-back apparently a key area that Xisco Munoz wants to strengthen.

Sheffield Wednesday have brought in 10 new players so far this summer. And it looks like the Owls will sign a few more before the September 1st deadline, with new signings perhaps needed after their poor start to the season.

And a recent report from The Star suggested that Munoz wants to add depth at left-back with Reece James currently the only natural left-back within the first-team.

Here are three left-backs that Wednesday could realistic target in the coming week or so…

Danny Rose

The 33-year-old Rose is a free agent after being released by Watford at the end of last season.

In terms of experience, there’s few options out there with as much as Rose; the 29-cap former England international has almost 300 career appearances to his name, with many of those coming in the Premier League.

A Championship move may be his most realistic outcome this summer and it’s somewhat surprising to see him still without a club, though Munoz would have to wait for Rose to get back up to match speed.

Another free agent left-back is George Cox. The former Brighton youngster has just completed a successful spell in the Netherlands with Fortuna Sittard, with his performances having attracted Championship sides in the past.

Both QPR and Blackburn Rovers were looking at him last season, and it’s another surprising name still on the free agent market.

At 25, he’s at a good age to return to England and reignite his career here, and he could be a very good option for Wednesday going forward.

Alvaro Fernandez

The Manchester United youngster may be the most ambitious name on this list.

Formerly of Real Madrid, Fernandez spent last season on loan at Preston North End in the Championship, with the 20-year-old impressing.

He’s a very attacking and pacy wing-back who looks like he’s trying to force his way into the first-team picture at Old Trafford.

But if nothing is brewing there, then United could quickly loan him out before the end of the summer transfer window, and the Championship could be his likeliest destination.
