Young Sheffield Wednesday midfielder set for Macclesfield Town loan move
Owls youngster Connor Kirby is poised to join League Two side Macclesfield Town on a season long-loan deal.
Several English Football League clubs are believed to have expressed an interest in the midfielder this summer.
But the 20-year-old, who joined the Wednesday academy eight years ago, has elected to continue his football education with Sol Campbell’s Macclesfield.
Kirby made his Owls debut in April 2018, coming on as a second half substitute in their Championship victory over Reading.

He played three times last year, including two run-outs in the League Cup. His last outing came against West Bromwich Albion back in October when Wednesday squandered a two-goal lead at Hillsborough.
