Stephen McPhail: Has linked up with Sheffield Wednesday as a free agent

The 33-year-old has been without a club since leaving Cardiff City at the end of last season.

He formed part of the Bluebirds squad which secured promotion to the Premier League, but spent much of the campaign frustrated on the sidelines.

McPhail was restricted to just two appearances in 2012/13, suggesting he will be short of match sharpness.

Wednesday are, however, convinced that they can put his experience to good use.

The Republic of Ireland international has represented Leeds United, Millwall, Nottingham Forest, Barnsley and Cardiff over the course of a distinguished career which has seen him figure in over 400 games.

McPhail has worked with Wednesday boss Dave Jones before, during his time in South Wales, and will be eligible to make his Owls bow against Birmingham City on Saturday if deemed ready for action.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
