Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes looking set for Huddersfield Town switch
While Sheffield Wednesday are heading to League One, it looks as though Jordan Rhodes will get another crack at becoming the Championship’s all-time top scorer.
Rhodes got seven league goals for the Owls in 2020/21, taking his tally to 115 in his career, just six away from matching David Nugent’s league record of 121 since it was established in 2004.
It was always likely that the forward would be moving on after what has been a tough spell in Hillsborough for since his move from Middlesbrough, especially as relegation would mean a serious drop in wages even if he was to consider sticking around.
Reports previously have stated that the likes of Ipswich Town and Cardiff City had been interested in the forward as they plan for the season ahead, but it now appears that he’s on the verge of a homecoming of sorts just down the road from Hillsborough.
Huddersfield Town is where the 31-year-old really made his name after making his debut there more than a decade ago, and reports from Football Insider have stated that he’s now undergone a medical with the Terriers ahead of potential move.
The Star has previously reported that Huddersfield were leading the race of his signature, while reports elsewhere have stated that he was offered a three-year deal to re-join his former employers.
Joost van Aken is the only confirmed Owls exit so far after he joined Belgian outfit, Zulte Waragem, while many others are expected to follow him out of the door in the next week or so.
