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.
