A whole host of Sheffield Wednesday fans on Twitter were very happy to see Nathaniel Mendez-Laing has signed for the club.

Wednesday weren’t quiet over the summer as they managed to bring in nine new faces as they embarked on a season in League One, however, it hasn’t exactly paid off as they currently sit outside of the play-offs.

Will Sheffield Wednesday be promoted?





Darren Moore and the Wednesday board don’t appear willing to wait until the January transfer window to improve and change the squad as they’ve moved for Mendez-Laing, who was a free agent having been released by Middlesbrough earlier this year.

A lot of Sheffield Wednesday fans on Twitter are delighted to have signed the former Cardiff City man.

What have these Wednesday fans been saying?

“The parties getting starteddddd”


“Could be unreal in League 1 if fully fit”


“Mate how have we pulled this off”


Ermmmm… I’ll take that welcome”


“Quality !!!!”


“On his day a fantastic signing! A gamble but hopefully a calculated and good one. UTO. Think means Sow is gone in Jan.”

An easy one to kick off our quiz on the 2020 summer transfer window in the EFL, which player left Birmingham City to join Borussia Dortmund?

Mendez-Laing has both Premier League and Championship experience but has not played in League One since his time with Rochdale during the 2016/17 season, although has a decent record in England’s third tier for a winger having scored and assisted a combined 44 goals in 157 appearances, so it could be an incredibly astute piece of business for the Owls.
