Surprising report links Josh Windass with shock Sheffield Wednesday exit amid Ipswich Town links
Sheffield Wednesday striker, Josh Windass, has once again been linked with a move away from the club, and this time he’s said to have attracted interest from a surprise destination.
Windass started his 23rd game of the season for the Owls on Saturday against Reading, but was unable to help them bring to an end their longest losing streak in almost a decade.
The forward has got five Championship goals to his name this season having played in a variety of different positions under a variety of different managers, and he was also linked with the likes of West Bromwich Albion in the last transfer window.
And while the 27-year-old stuck around then, reports have now emerged that his former Wigan Athletic manager, Paul Cook, could be interested in taking him to Ipswich Town after he was appointed as the Tractor Boys’ new manager earlier this week.
Cook and Windass have a bit of a chequered past with a fallout leading to his original loan move to Hillsborough last season, something that adds a level of scrutiny to the idea that they’d be willing to team up again at Portman Road.
However Football Insider has reported that Cook is willing to put aside their differences and is ‘a big admirer’ of the attacker, though it remains to be seen whether the Owls would be open to the idea of him leaving after forking out around £500,000 for him less than a year ago.
There are big changes expected at Wednesday before the start of next season, but for now the focus is on trying to maintain their Championship status.
