Argentine side Talleres are currently on track to secure a contractual agreement with Sheffield Wednesday attacking midfielder Josh Windass, according to a report from journalist Cesar Luis Merlo.
It is understood that Windass will now be aiming to secure a departure from Hillsborough.
Talleres were initially linked with a move for the 28-year-old last Friday as a report from The Star revealed that the club were preparing a bid.
Earlier this week, Talleres chairman Andres Fassi confirmed that his side were indeed looking to seal a deal for Windass.
Pedro Caixinha is currently in charge of the Primera Division side and previously worked alongside Windass during his time at Rangers.
Windass’ current deal with the Owls is set to run until 2023 and thus this summer represents the last chance that they will get to receive a reasonable offer for the attacking midfielder.
Despite missing a chunk of action last season due to injury, Windass still managed to demonstrate some real signs of promise in the third-tier.
Having missed out on promotion via the play-offs earlier this month, the Owls will be determined to launch a push for a top-two finish later this year under the guidance of manager Darren Moore.

If this report turns out to be true, Windass could potentially secure a switch to Talleres in the not-too-distant future.
When you consider that the transfer window is set to open for teams who currently participate in the Football League next month, the Owls will be hoping that this particular saga doesn’t drag on.
Although they will be keen to retain Windass’ services, they should sell him if he expresses a clear desire to seal a move to South America.
In order to cover the possibility of Windass leaving this summer, Wednesday may find it beneficial to draft up a list of replacements for the attacking midfielder.
