Sheffield Wednesday duo attracting Premier League interest

Sheffield Wednesday duo Steven Fletcher and Morgan Fox are attracting plenty of interest from the Premier League with their contracts due to expire during the summer, TEAMtalk claims.

The Owls have experienced a tough season where they have remained in a mid-table tussle, but Fletcher has still caught the eye with 13 goals and two assists from 26 league outings.

On the other hand, Fox has impressed with his solid defensive attributes and he managed an average of more than two tackles per game over the course of the Championship campaign.

Both players have contracts which are due to expire at the end of June, but the Owls are likely to negotiate short-term extensions until July such that they can finish the remaining league fixtures with them in the squad.

According to TEAMtalk, the duo could get the opportunity to play in the top-flight next term with Burnley, Bournemouth and Norwich City among the candidates interested in signing them.

Elsewhere, there also appears to be interest from the Championship and promotion-chasing West Bromwich Albion are currently the highest-placed club in the running to secure their services.

Fletcher, 33, is currently in the final phase of his professional career, but he has proved a quality performer in the second tier with his strong presence in and around the box and has won more than five aerial duels per game this season.

As such, he has the physical attributes to have one final crack in the Premier League and could be ideally suited for Sean Dyche’s side, who prefer to play with two strikers upfront with the ability to hold-up play and find the back of the net.

Fletcher has previously had seven seasons in the Premier League and one of them came during the 2009/10 campaign when the Clarets under Owen Coyle, were promoted to the top-flight after a 33-year hiatus.

Meanwhile, Fox has yet to taste Premier League action during his career. At the age of 26, he would be striving for a potential chance at the highest level and it will be interesting to see whether any deal materialises this summer.

Wednesday are presently 15th in the Championship and they are currently eight points behind sixth-placed Preston North End. A winning streak over the next nine games could put them in play-off contention, but that remains a difficult ask for a club, who have failed to win more than two league matches on the trot this term.
