League One promotion favourites Sheffield Wednesday still remain ‘hopeful’ of signing Hull City attacker Mallik Wilks this summer, according to YorkshireLive reporter Dom Howson.
The 23-year-old could still potentially depart Hull in the remaining weeks of the Transfer window, having struggled to nail down a regular starting berth last season in their Championship campaign.
Wednesday have been linked with Wilks for the majority of this summer, with the Owls keen on adding more quality to their attacking department. This is seen as a key area to strengthen in manager Darren Moore’s eyes.
Now in this latest update, Howson is reporting that Wednesday’s interest hasn’t gone away and that the League One side are still hopeful of agreeing a deal.
The Owls have been busy this summer with the additions of Michael Smith, Will Vaulks and Ben Heneghen to just name a few, but Moore still believes they are lacking in the wide areas.
It seems that Wilks is their main target for that area, the 23-year-old would bring in that needed pace, trickery, and goal scoring ability. Wilks has managed 30 goals and 10 assists in 89 appearances for Hull City.
This latest update suggests that Wednesday haven’t moved on and between now and the transfer deadline they still remain keen on getting a deal across the line.
