Sheffield Wednesday are closing in on the loan signing of Derby County forward Jack Marriott according to Yorkshire Live.
Marriott will undergo a medical at Sheffield Wednesday’s training ground ahead of a season-long loan move to the Owls, who have been in the market for a striker in recent weeks.
Garry Monk only has Jordan Rhodes as his senior striking option at the moment, so strength in depth was certainly needed in that area of the squad.
Do Sheffield Wednesday and Sheffield United have these things in common or not? Test your knowledge in our quiz!
Marriott struggled for consistent game time last season with Derby, and will be hoping he can make a positive impact with Wednesday this term.
The Owls are currently sat bottom of the Championship table, and eight points adrift of safety after being hit with a points deduction at the start of the 2020/21 season for off-the-field problems.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters were quick to take to social media to issue their thoughts on Marriott’s seemingly imminent arrival at Hillsborough.
