Sheffield Wednesday fans split on Rhodes exit

Sheffield Wednesday fans are split over the latest transfer story, as Jordan Rhodes’ loan move to Norwich has finally happened.

The Rhodes to Norwich deal has flicked on and off more times than are worth counting. The 28 year-old looked certain to make the switch last week, but the deal fell through at the last minute.

That’s all changed again now though, as The Sheffield Star reported on Monday evening that the deal was close to completion and the clubs announced the deal less than 24 hours later.

The Owls are desperate to trim their wage bill this summer, and dumping the striker for a season-long loan will help in that regard, as Norwich will pay a small loan fee and a chunk of the player’s wages.

Fans are split on the exit though, as many feel they haven’t really seen the best of Rhodes.

The club-record £8m man has fallen down the pecking order at Hillsborough, and some fans are concerned he’ll be banging the goals in at a new club.

Other fans are delighted to see the back of him though, insisting he simply hasn’t done enough to earn his spot.
