  1. Sheffield Wednesday have signed European defender Claude Dielna on a free transfer, subject to international clearance.

    The versatile Frenchman has put pen to paper on a three-year contract at Hillsborough.

    Dielna is a powerful central defender who can also switch across to left back.

    The 26-year-old recently left Greek giants Olympiakos and the Owls have moved swiftly to snap up the stopper.

    Dielna has enjoyed successful spells with French clubs Lorient, Istres, Sedan and Ajaccio, lifting the French National title with Istres.

    He was linked with a host of English sides last season from the Premiership and Championship and joins Wednesday ahead of the trip to Bolton Wanderers in early September.

  2. Not heard anything mentioned about this for ages. Thought it was pretty much a certainty that we were having a director of football.

    This could potentially be the most important appointment we make this summer. If it was going to happen you would want somebody in by now to start working on the summer signings.

    Is this an example of us being slow off the mark again?

  3. I remember Mandaric saying something in the summer along the lines of "We will see where we are at Christmas and push on from there". At the time I thought he meant that if we were close to the play offs he might spend a bit more money.

    I now interpret it as "I'm not spending any money. I'm happy for us to be at the bottom of the table for half a season and then we'll bring in some loans to get us out of trouble"

    I think that is exactly what will happen this season.
