Owls in for the reservists


Sheffield Wednesday have made an audacious bid to sign West Ham United duo Benni McCarthy and Herita Ilunga.

The duo are only on the fringes of the first-team picture at Upton Park and the Hammers are willing to let them go.

South African striker McCarthy has not started a league game this season, whilst left-back Ilunga has been pushed out by Wayne Bridge’s arrival.

Now League One Wednesday, courtesy of new owner Milan Mandaric’s financial backing, are looking to land both players on loan.

“We are trying to get both players in and the two clubs have been in dialogue for a few days,” confirmed manager Gary Megson.

“We are facing a battle to convince them to drop two divisions but we are asking the questions.”
