According to Football Insider, Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes hasn’t given up on a move to Scotland after having a bid for him on deadline day declined by the Owls.
It’s claimed that SPFL giants Celtic were interested in bringing the 29-year-old to Glasgow last week, and the Wednesday striker was quite attracted by the prospect of the moving north of the border.
Now Rhodes is believed to be eager to join Neil Lennon’s side this summer should they pursue him once again.
Rhodes has been part of the setup at Hillsborough since former manager Carlos Carvalhal made a club-record splash on him in the summer of 2017 following an initial six-month loan period from league rivals Middlesbrough.
Although his time in south Yorkshire has been far from a success – last season he was forced out on loan to Norwich City and this campaign he’s only managed to start four Championship matches.
His overall record for the Owls isn’t great reading either, managing just 13 goals in 70 appearances.
Garry Monk has recently made his intentions very clear by bringing in two attacking additions on deadline day, so Rhodes’ place in the Owls pecking order has slipped down even more.
While it is unlikely the club will be able to recoup the fee they paid for him, they can still get one of their highest earners off the wage bill and thus give Monk a boost to rebuild this squad come the off-season.
