Sheffield news Sheffield Wednesday's strongest line-up following the arrival of Andre Green PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - The winger has joined the Championship club on a free transfer, having left Aston Villa at the end of last season, and could make his Owls bow against Everton in the FA Cup fourth round next week
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Sheffield Wednesday have today added to their ranks, bringing in speedy winger Andre Green on a free transfer. The ex-Aston Villa youngster has been handed shirt number 16, having agreed an 18-month deal. Green, a fast, direct player, is a winger by trade. The 22-year-old, predominantly a right-footed player, can be deployed on either flank. If required, Green can also be utilised as a striker. It is hard to say right now with any degree of certainty where Green will fit in because the identity of the Owls' new manager remains a mystery. No one knows for sure how Wednesday will line up when they next take to the field in their FA Cup fourth round tie against Everton next week. But Yorkshire Live has taken a closer look at the Owls' strongest starting XI following Green's arrival.

The vastly-experienced shot-stopper, who is entering the final months of his Wednesday deal, has barely put a foot wrong since returning to the side. He conceded just two goals in his three outings before the end of 2020. It's his spot to lose right now. Defence The Owls' options are currently limited by injuries to some key players, most notably reigning player of the year Dominic Iorfa and midfield dynamo Massimo Luongo. If Wednesday had a fully-fit squad to choose from and lined up with a flat back four, Iorfa would slot in at right-back with Liam Palmer on the left side (NB There is a distinct possibility they will bring in a new left-back this month).

Tom Lees, Chey Dunkley, Joost van Aken, Julian Borner, Liam Shaw, Ciaran Brennan and Osaze Urhoghide can all play there. There is only a small sample size to go off but the pairing I would go with is Lees and Dunkley. They have dovetailed well in tandem and appear to have struck up a good understanding.

. My two deep-lying midfielders would be Luongo and skipper Barry Bannan. As well as Joey Pelupessy has done in the defensive midfield role in recent weeks, Luongo offers more quality on the ball. You can pick your own strongest Wednesday lineup using our team selector below. Green's extra pace will give the Owls an extra dimension on the counter attack. He gets the nod over Kadeem Harris on the right, with Adam Reach on the left. There have been encouraging signs in the past two months under two different managers that Reach is rediscovering his best form. He has notched two goals in his last three starts and looks like a man enjoying his football again. Like Reach, Paterson has featured prominently in the Owls' revival, finding the back of the net in each of the last three matches. It would be his job to support Josh Windass from deep.

Izzy Brown loan recall: The truth on Sheffield Wednesday future amid Chelsea return rumours Attack This is very straight forward. Windass has been one of Wednesday's most consistent performers in a turbulent campaign. With Jordan Rhodes, Elias Kachunga and Jack Marriott having failed to perform, Windass has stepped up and established himself as a first-team regular. He remains their main goal threat. It will be interesting to see how Windass reacts after the Owls recruit a new striker in the January transfer window. Competition for places on the front will then seriously start to hot up. Wednesday's best XI (4-2-3-1): Westwood: Iorfa, Dunkley, Lees, Palmer; Luongo, Bannan; Green, Paterson, Reach; Windass.
