Hector, who spent last season on loan to Hull City from Chelsea, could become Sheffield Wednesday’s first summer signing.

Sheffield Wednesday are being linked with a move for Michael Hector, the Chelsea defender who spent last season on loan to Hull City.

The 26-year-old’s position is one in which Wednesday are expected to strengthen after having their transfer embargo lifted last week.

But when asked at a press conference earlier, Jos Luhukay, the Owls manager, would not reveal whether or not a new central defender is indeed his priority and refused to be drawn on the Hector speculation.

Hector, for whom Jose Mourinho paid around £5 million to bring to Chelsea from Reading three years ago, played 38 times for Hull last season, having previously spent time at Frankfurt, Aberdeen and countless other clubs.

And Hull fans are perhaps then the best bunch to ask for insight into the Jamaica international.

This is what they’re saying about the prospective Sheffield Wednesday recruit on Twitter…
