TWO former clubs in for Sheffield Wednesday man Jordan Rhodes, say reports

It’s looking increasingly likely Sheffield Wednesday are set to part ways with their record signing Jordan Rhodes, according to reports.

A move away would put an end to a fairly miserable stint at Hillsborough for the striker, who joined in 2017 from Middlesbrough.

Once regarded as one of the hottest properties in English football for a remarkable start to his career, it’s fair to say things never quite took off for the now 31-year-old, whose contract ends next month.

Wednesday boss Darren Moore confirmed that he had meetings scheduled with each of the out-of-contract players at the club to discuss their future.

Sheffield Wednesday man Jordan Rhodes looks likely to move on.

Both he and club captain Barry Bannan hinted at the need for change at Wednesday as they start a new chapter as a League One club following relegation from the second tier.

And Rhodes, understood to be one of the higher earners at S6, looks likely to move on.

Reports say two of his former clubs; Huddersfield Town and Ipswich Town, have made moves to secure his services next season.

Rhodes started out as a youngster at Ipswich, making a handful of appearances as a teenager before making the move to West Yorkshire.

It was at Huddersfield where his career truly took off, scoring 73 league goals in just 124 matches.

But it has stunted at Wednesday, where he has contributed only 15 league goals in 83 games and has found himself in and out of favour under a number of different managers.

Asked about his Wednesday future in March, Rhodes said: “That’s for the powers that be, that’s way out of my control, I’ll just leave it at that.”
