Sheffield Wednesday should target Laurentiu Bus, free agent brother of Sergiu

Sheffield Wednesday 2

The winger played in the Champions League for Otelul Galati.

Sheffield Wednesday snapped up Romanian striker Sergiu Bus in the winter. The Owls spent an undisclosed fee on the 22-year-old after he had impressed in Bulgaria with CSKA Sofia – scoring 10 goals in 10 games.

The striker impressed in his early games for the club, but unfortunately picked up an injury which has seen him out of action for the past month.

Wednesday’s season appears to be limping toward a fairly boring finish. They cannot make the play-offs and are well clear of relegation, but that has not stopped manager Stuart Gray being active in the transfer market. He brought in Lloyd Isgrove from Southampton on loan earlier this week. But should he consider another deal?

The player in question is a free agent and has Champions League experience, so would be a good option. He also happens to be the older brother of Sergiu Bus.

Laurentiu Bus, who played in the Champions League Group Stages for Otelul Galati in 2011-12, joined Rapid Bucharest in the summer from Yenisey Krasnoyarsk. However he left the club in December and is still a free agent, after a trial period at Italian side Monza came to nothing – as reported by MBnews.

The winger is certainly a good option and a former Romanian youth international. At 27-years-old he is certainly not over the hill.

He would also help their new striker settle in at the club a little easier, having a fellow Romanian who happens to be his brother around certainly wouldn’t hurt.

Affordable and hopefully a boost for the club and one of their main players, surely Laurentiu Bus is worth a look from Gray.
