Championship duo again linked with move for out-of-contract Sheffield Wednesday man - Cardiff City & Huddersfield Town chase Jordan Rhodes?

Like so many others, Jordan Rhodes’ Sheffield Wednesday future is very much up in the air at present, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be short of offers if he moves on.

Rhodes has not had the best of times at Hillsborough since his record-breaking move from Middlesbrough, and while he’s got seven goals to his name this season, his goal return has not been what anybody – himself included – had hoped.

The 31-year-old will see his current deal with the Owls expire at the end of June, and he has been heavily linked with an exit from S6 in a move that would potentially act as a clean break for both parties.

According to reports in The Sun over the weekend, both Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City are keeping a close eye on the forward’s situation as he nears the end of his Wednesday deal, and both clubs could be tempting for the forward – especially if the Owls end up in League One.

Rhodes as a substitute for SWFC over the weekend as they dropped two more points thanks to a late goal from Bristol City, with the 1-1 draw meaning that they remain seven points adrift of safety with just 12 points left to play for.

The forward needs just seven more goals to become the Championship’s top scorer of all time, but it would require a monumental feat for him to achieve that milestone in Wednesday colours now.

Rhodes is one of many players at Hillsborough who will be out of contract in July, and one of many who are likely to move on.
