Sheffield Wednesday

We bring you the latest news from Leeds United, Huddersfield Town, Rotherham United, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday.

Milanic reveals Leeds objective

Darko Milanic says that his objective as Leeds United manager is to guide them to the Premier League.

Milanic took charge this week and, although he admits promotion may not happen this season, he is targeting a return to the top in the near future. 

"The objectives are clear," he said to the Yorkshire Evening Post. 

“In the near future the objective is the Premier League.

“He (Cellino) wants to be promoted and then stay there but promotion is not yet our primary objective this season.”

Powell reinstates desire to loan

Huddersfield Town boss Chris Powell has reinstated his desire to bring in loan signings in the near future.

The Terriers have had a poor opening to the season and the new manager is clearly looking to add quality to their squad. 

"I know I can only loan at the minute, but I do feel we are light in numbers and even with the good players we have, I want us to get better and do better," he explained to the Yorkshire Post. 

“But again, it is not just us looking for other players, but other clubs and you are fighting against those are well.

May enjoys cup hammering

Stevie May may have seen his side demolished against Manchester City on Tuesday night, but the Sheffield Wednesday front-man still enjoyed the experience.

May has made a good impression since arriving from St. Johnstone and the League Cup clash, he feels, shows how far he has come. 

“I am loving it,” he said to the Yorkshire Post. “If I hadn’t have come down here, Tuesday night would have been Kilmarnock away for me.

“That is why it is nice to go to places like Manchester City, even if the result is not what we wanted."

Evans: McCarthy someone I look up to

Rotherham United manager Steve Evans says that Ipswich Town boss Mick McCarthy is someone he looks up to.

The Millers take on Ipswich at the weekend and Evans has great admiration for the man in the opposite dug-out. 

“I didn’t know Mick a lot. I used to be frightened to talk to him," Evans revealed to the South Yorkshire Times. 

“He was just someone I looked up to. It was like looking up to the top people in the Premier League. He had that aura about him.”

Blades looking to use the loan market

Nigel Clough has admitted that Sheffield United are still on the hunt for loan additions.

The Blades have had an inconsistent start to the campaign, failing to live up to expectations, and Clough is hoping to add more quality in the loan market. 

"We are still looking at doing a couple of things," Clough said to the Sheffield Telegraph. "Situations change all the time but there are a few things we’re keeping an eye on.”
