Carvalhal responds when asked about Sheffield Wednesday's interest in Danny Graham

Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal is refused to give much away over a move for Sunderland's Danny Graham.

Sheffield Wednesday boss Carlos Carvalhal has looked to avoid the subject of signing Danny Graham, as reported by the Shields Gazette.

Carvalhal is preparing to take his Owls side up to Newcastle United for their Capital One Cup tie on Wednesday evening, off the back of the 3-2 win over Fulham on Saturday.

Yet, even after landing Fernando Forestieri and Lucas Joao, it seems that Wednesday and Carvalhal are still looking to bring in another forward to boost their attacking options.

The Sheffield Star reported earlier today that Wednesday are waiting on an answer from Sunderland striker Danny Graham, who is out of favour at the Stadium of Light.

Carvalhal was asked about the prospect of signing Graham during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Newcastle clash, but tried to play down the speculation by focusing on his existing squad.

"It’s time to put the focus on the players we have," said Carvalhal, refusing to give anything away over Wednesday's pursuit of Graham.

Graham, 30, has scored just one goal for Sunderland his move to the Stadium of Light in January 2013, and has had loan spells with Hull City, Middlesbrough and Wolverhampton Wanderers as a result of his poor return.

Wednesday seemingly believe that he can be the man to fire them towards the play-offs though, and whilst Carvalhal is looking to keep the focus away from the rumours, it appears that a deal is in the pipeline.
