The club are apparently interested in Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan.

A report by the Sheffield Star journalist Dom Howson said that both us and Middlesbrough were keeping tabs on the Scottish international.

Fans on Twitter were pretty split about our reported pursuit of the former Villa man:

Verdict:

The transfer fee that Bannan would cost, combined with his previous affiliation with Villa make this a pretty unlikely transfer. The Star first reported our interest and the fact that it is from a local newspaper near to Wednesday, rather than sources close to the Blues, probably make this less credible.

Still, there is some logic in the rumour because we are definitely looking for a playmaker who can play in central midfield. We are not looking for a number 10 this summer if Garry Monk keeps with his 4-4-2 system, so someone with a good passing range but also has a good all-round game will be needed. We’ll just have to see who we bring in.

  • Unlikely yes but I would love someone like him playing for us quality player great vision comfortable on the ball what we need don’t really get this villa link he doesn’t like us he was playing for villa against blues who cares

  • Barry Bannon is the type of player we need , but for obvious reason I am not sure he would want to come and if he did would he fit it at St Andrews T.T.. My pick for this position would be Ryan Woods of Brentford if he was available. I definitely think we need a midfield playmaker. !
