A left-sided central defender is understood to be a priority for the Owls this month and Roberts fits the bill as a left-footer whose primary position is centre-half.

Meanwhile, play-off-chasing MK Dons are set to lose goalkeeper Andrew Fisher to Championship side Swansea City.

The 23-year-old is set for a reunion with former boss Russell Martin, with a deal in the region of £400,000 agreed between both clubs.

"It's disappointing, timing-wise, and with how it's played out with the noise and disruption," Dons boss Liam Manning said.

"He won't be involved tomorrow (against AFC Wimbledon)."

The duo are on loan from Sunderland and Huddersfield Town respectively and have featured regularly for the promotion-chasing league leaders.

Former Wigan striker Grigg has scored six goals in 22 appearances for Rotherham, who were rocked by news of Freddie Ladapo’s transfer request last weekend, this season.
