The Scottish Sun report that Wednesday want 23-year-old Findlay, who plays for the Scottish Premiership side alongside Owls Boss Steve Bruce’s son Alex.

Findlay, who is a former Celtic player, was recently called up to the Scottish national team for their Euro qualifiers against Kazakhstan and San Marino after an impressive campaign with Killie.

And he’s caught the eye of Hillsborough chief Bruce who was in the stands for Kilmarnock’s 1-0 win over Hibernian last week.

It was originally thought that Bruce was at Rugby Park to watch his son in action, but it appears he might have been taking a look at his latest transfer target.
