Deal Agreed;Sheffield Wednesdays Finally agreed £23.m rated star from Liverpool .

Sheffield Wednesday signed no fewer than 12 players in the summer transfer window, including the likes of Jeff Hendrick, John Buckley, Juan Delgado and Anthony Musaba.

The transfer window may now be shut but that doesn’t mean Sheffield Wednesday are necessarily done in terms of incomings. One avenue that still remains open to manager Xisco Munoz is the free agents market.

There is no immediate deadline by which clubs have to offer deals to non-contracted players, with the fourth Thursday in March the final date for unregistered players to find themselves a new home.

Recent seasons have seen Wednesday dip their toes sparingly in this particular market with Nathaniel Mendez-Laing and Andre Green the most recent examples albeit neither set the world alight at Hillsborough. Last week saw Wednesday sign both Jeff Hendrick and John Buckley on loan, taking their summer signings up to 12. That presents a particular dilemma for Munoz given the 25-man squad list needs to be submitted to the EFL by Wednesday at noon.

Nevertheless, Munoz says that if he spots a gem who is unattached he will not hesitate to look closely at them.
