Revealed: 61% of Sheffield Wednesday fans want to bid for Vydra

Sheffield Wednesday fans have been discussing making a shock swoop for Leeds target Matej Vydra, and nearly two thirds of fans are backing a big move.

Derby County are expected to offload some first team players this summer as the Rams look to trim their wage bill, and Vydra could be the first out the door.

The 20-cap Czech international, valued at £7.2m by Transfermarkt, has been heavily linked with a move to Leeds, and The Telegraph claimed this weekend an £11m switch to Elland Road is edging closer.

Marcelo Bielsa needs a proven goalscorer if he’s going to get Leeds moving towards the right end of the table, but they are also interested in Abel Hernandez, and Owls’ fans are clearly hoping they swoop in and steal Vydra while their rivals are hesitating.

Wednesday already have Gary Hooper and Atdhe Nuhiu, and their first priority this summer should be a creative playmaker rather than a goalscorer, but £11m for last season’s top scorer is simply too good to pass up.

Fans clearly agree, as 61 per cent said they should make a move for Vydra, and we suspect a few Leeds fans might have influenced the poll in the other direction as well.
