Could Sheffield Wednesday man be about to seal shock Premier League switch?

The make up of Sheffield Wednesday’s squad next season will be very, very different.

The Owls confirmed last week that no fewer than 10 senior players will be leaving the club at their end of their contracts in the coming weeks.

Striker Jordan Rhodes has already sealed a move to Huddersfield Town, Joost van Aken is en route to Belgian side Zulte Waragem and there is bubbling speculation over the likely next destinations of a host of others.

One of the more eye-catching round of reports surrounds Adam Reach, who former boss Tony Pulis revealed had entered into contract negotiations with the club around the turn of the year but was one of the players included on the released list.

Sheffield Wednesday's Adam reach will leave the club at the end of his current deal.

The 28-year-old former England youth international was a near ever-present for the Owls last season, scoring five goals in 44 league games.

And among the rumours that don’t seem to be going away are those linking him with a move to Norwich City.

The Canaries won the Championship last season and are in the process of shaping their squad for the Premier League. If reports are to be believed, they appear to see Reach as a cost-effective and dependable way to bolster their squad, with Football Insider putting their name to the link over the weekend.

The versatile former Middlesbrough man signed for Wednesday for a fee believed to be in the region of £5m back in 2017. He leaves Hillsborough having scored a total of 24 goals in 230 appearances.
