Sheffield Wednesday fans react on Twitter to the signing of Marnick Vermijl

Sheffield Wednesday - The Owls

Marnick Vermijl was one of Sheffield Wednesday's many transfer deadline day deals.

Sheffield Wednesday were one of the busiest clubs on transfer deadline day with former Manchester United defender Marnick Vermijl among the signings confirmed by the club’s website.

For some fans the arrival of the 23-year-old could have had the look of a loan deal, but the club announced they had agreed a deal with United, which allowed them to tie down the youngster on a three-and-a-half year contract.

Stuart Gray felt he needed something down the right hand side of his defence and Vermijl is a player who could make the difference.

His pace will allow him to get forward and put his opposition counterpart on the back foot, also creating a source of extra width for the side.

The worry for Wednesday is that he doesn’t have a great deal of experience, with his only loan move away from United being a short spell with NEC in Dutch football.

The Championship is an extremely competitive and physical league and another main worry will be that opposition sides could look to target him and take advantage of his inexperience, suggesting him as a weakness when sides prepare to face the Owls.

However, that’s where Gray needs to step in and earn his cash, working with the youngster to not only develop his defensive game, but improve his core strength so he becomes seen as a vital component in the team’s back four.

Here’s what Sheffield Wednesday fans made of the signing on Twitter.
