Gray offers his opinion on Pearson and Roeder's appointments at Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday recently appointed Glenn Roeder and Adam Pearson to oversee transfers at the club.

Sheffield Wednesday manager Stuart Gray believes that the appointments of Adam Pearson and Glenn Roeder will benefit the club.

Pearson and Roeder were both given advisory roles at Hillsborough earlier this week, where they will be expected to oversee the club's transfer dealings, and Gray has backed their arrival.

The Owls boss believes that the pair's experience will be key and says he is looking forward to working with them in the future.

There were some Wednesday supporters who felt Gray had been undermined by the appointments, but it seems that he is happy to be given more time on the training ground.

Gray will be expected to take up more of a coaching role in the new set-up at Hillsborough, with his time mainly spent focusing on developing the players in his squad.

Roeder and Pearson, meanwhile, will suggest transfer targets and look to acquire players that will enhance the options Gray has at his disposal.

Wednesday are keen to develop a forward-thinking strategy, as expectations rise following the takeover of Dejphon Chansiri.

The Owls will be among the favourites for promotion out of the Championship next season and the hope is that the committee can work efficiently together to get the side back to the Premier League.
