Sheffield Wednesday boss Brian Laws claims he is close to bringing in a Premier League player on loan. The Owls have been linked with Stoke midfielder Tom Soares. Laws refused to confirm who they are chasing but did admit they might also bring in a second player if the top-flight club subsidise the wages of the first.
He told the Sheffield Star: "It's only average wage money that I have to work with, so I have to wheel and deal and hope that the Premier League club will help me out financially.
"If they say 'yes', then possibly we may get a second, Championship player; if they say 'no', then their player would take up all the money."
