“Sheffield Wednesday would be in the frame”- Pundit talks up Owls . If Newcastle United permits the midfield sensation to transfer on loan to the Championship, according to Carlton Palmer, Sheffield Wednesday would be in the race.
The EFL has shown a lot of interest in the Newcastle United star Elliot Anderson over the past several transfer windows, with many teams expressing their interest in January and before the 2022–23 season.
During the second half of the 2021–2022 season, the midfielder flourished while on loan becoming perhaps the division’s greatest player as the Gas successfully won promotion.
Many Championship clubs are keeping an eye on Anderson’s status in preparation for a potential summer transfer, according to a report from The Athletic.
It was revealed by The Chronicle Live in January that promotion-seeking Sheffield Wednesday was interested in signing the gifted graduate of the Newcastle academy. It is unclear if their interest will reignite should they manage to gain a return to the Championship.

Carlton Palmer spoke on Elliott Anderson and whether the Owls should pursue the talented midfielder once more in an interview with Football League World. “Elliot Anderson was brilliant for Newcastle the other night,” Palmer said (against Nottingham Forest). He is a very, very gifted young player, but the talk around Newcastle is that he might be loaned to a Championship club—but it will be a Championship club that plays football correctly. Hence, should Sheffield Wednesday succeed in being promoted, I believe they would be in the running to sign him. He would also be a very, very nice acquisition.
If promotion is won and Newcastle decides that another loan move is necessary, Sheffield Wednesday may be an excellent destination for Anderson because he has already done a lot of the scouting work there.
He has not only performed admirably in the few Premier League games he has participated in this season, but he also brings diversity and bravery to the attacking third.
