It’s amazing what can happen in the space of a few days.

At the start of the month, numerous Wycombe fans were panicking over the lack of signings with pre-season just around the corner.

Fast forward a week, the Chairboys have announced three new players and now, there is a wave of excitement hitting Adams Park.

Richard Keogh, a one-time Wanderers centre back with over 700 games under his belt joined on a free transfer from Ipswich Town, the exciting prospect of 19-year-old midfielder Kian Breckin has signed on loan from Manchester City, along with the ever-reliable ex-Shrewsbury Town captain, Luke Leahy.

And what makes the latter signing even more impressive is that Wycombe attracted a player who had one year left of his contract, and managed to beat off interest from Hollywood-owned Wrexham for his signature. 

It’s also worth noting that Leahy was heavily linked with numerous other teams in League One before joining the Chairboys, who agreed to meet Shrewsbury’s asking price after the 30-year-old had handed in a transfer request.

The Salops' director of football, Micky Moore, told the club’s website: “We received numerous bids for Luke which were all turned down.   

“Luke was informed about what was going on all the way through and we subsequently offered him a new and improved contract which he turned down. 

“He made it quite clear that he would like a new challenge and to move on to pastures new.

“But we also made it very clear to Wycombe that we would not sell unless they met our asking price. 

“As a result, Luke put a transfer request in.

"Then on Tuesday, Wycombe came back and agreed to our asking price and the add-ons we wanted in the deal. 

“We then granted permission for them to speak to Luke and complete the transfer.” 

Upon his arrival, Wycombe boss Matt Bloomfield said: “Luke has just had an outstanding season with Shrewsbury Town, and I’m delighted that he’s agreed to come and join us.

“He’s got a fantastic left foot, he can play in midfield or anywhere down the left, and he’s got a really impressive goal return over the years.”

This shows that the club are working tirelessly behind closed doors to recruit the correct players, so whilst there could be ‘quiet days on social media’ when no announcements are made, it’s the talks in the boardroom that are getting the transfer clogs moving.

On Leahy, his arrival in Buckinghamshire comes off the back of two very successful seasons at Shrewsbury, where he won the club’s Player of the Season award on both occasions.

He scored 20 goals in 91 appearances across all competitions, which included the winner for the Salops against Wycombe in August 2022 with a last-minute penalty.

The result, which ended 2-1 for the Shropshire side, was the first time in Football League history that they had won a league fixture at Adams Park.

Despite being a defensive player, Leahy will wear the number 10 for the club, which was last worn by Lewis Wing.
