After whipping some Sheffield Wednesday supporters into a frenzy on Thursday, Att Chansiri is – at the time of writing – no longer following the former Huddersfield Town winger Elias Kachunga on Instagram.

Kachunga’s account was, for a short time, the latest one added to the feed of Chansiri, the son of Wednesday’s chairman, Dejphon.

And after the signings of Chey Dunkley, Josh Windass, Connor Wickham, Alessio da Cruz and Massimo Luongo each proceeded the youngster following them on Instagram, it was thought that the Congolese – who was coached by the new Owls recruit Andrew Hughes at Huddersfield – could be next through the Hillsborough entrance door.

Whether that could be the case still, or just a slip of the finger from Att Chansiri initially, remains to be seen. But Kachunga’s arrival at Wednesday would make some sense.

As well as being competent in a variety of attacking roles in which the Owls could do with strengthening (he can play on either flank or through the middle), Kachunga is not a bad age (just turned 28), has Premier League experience (39 games for Huddersfield) and is, crucially, a free agent.

Oh, and another thing that could endear Kachunga to the Sheffield Wednesday faithful – he doesn’t have a lot of love for Jos Luhukay.

It was Luhukay, the unpopular former Owls manager, who brought the German-born player to Hertha Berlin on loan.

But the Dutchman used Kachunga just twice before dropping him to the club’s amateur side.

And ahead of facing Hertha two years later, by which point Kachunga was back at Bundesliga level with Pederborn, the former Germany Under-21 international vowed revenge on Luhukay, telling BILD: “For me this is a very special game. A goal would be a great thing. For me, that would be confirmation that I was right in my self-assessment.”
