Bullen also had a very memorable playing career at Hillsborough, captaining the club to promotion to the Championship in 2005 and stepping into a caretaker manager role on three separate occasions.
With Sheffield Wednesday currently sat ninth in the League One table, 13 points away from Rotherham United and Sunderland at the top of the pile, the January transfer window could give the Owls the best opportunity to strengthen their squad so that they can make a strong push towards a play-off place.
However, it seems as though Wednesday fans may have to sit tight for the time being when it comes to seeing any potential new players come into the club.
What’s the latest?

In response, he said: “As things stand, there is nothing close. I am not expecting a new player to come in before Plymouth. Wednesday are working hard behind the scenes on a number of deals. DM has a few irons in the fire.

Moving forward, with just over two weeks left until the January transfer window closes, Wednesday will need to ensure that the “irons in the fire”, as Howson put it, will materialise into one or two new recruits at Hillsborough, particularly in defence.
