Sheffield Wednesday fans have been reacting to the news that reported ‘target’ Reece James has signed for Blackpool rather than the Owls.

After Blackpool confirmed the signing on their Twitter account, Sheffield Wednesday writer for the Sheffield Star Alex Miller tweeted an article, which sparked many comments from angry Wednesday fans…

“Not surprised, we have to accept that we’re not an attractive option for players these days, history means nothing. It’s going to take some hard work and clever recruitment to get us out of the deep hole we’re in.”

“Alex, None of these players can be genuine targets given our current financial position (irrespective of what Lee Bullen tells you). I hope that changes but for now these links are total waste of time”

Judging by the comments, Sheffield Wednesday fans appear irritated by the news, which is yet more bad news for the Owls, with their current financial issues and this season’s from the Championship.

James joins Blackpool from Moore’s former club Doncaster Rovers on a three-year . Owls fans were hoping that the versatile left-back would want a reunion with his old boss, but James has instead opted to join the Tangerines in the Championship.

Wednesday are planning for life in League One, but with reports surrounding the club about player wages, many Wednesday fans are beginning to ask why anyone would join the club.
