Sheffield Wednesday

Host of clubs eyeing move for Sheffield Wednesday midfielder



A number of clubs across the Football League are tracking promising Sheffield Wednesday winger Jack Stobbs, according to HITC Sport.

The 19 year-old is one of the academy graduates at the Owls and has broken into the fringes of the first-team squad.

He made his debut as a substitute in an eventual 3-1 loss to Bolton Wanderers in April 2014, a month after the player put pen-to-paper on his first professional contract.

Portuguese manager Carlos Carvalhal recently brought in winger Callum McManaman from West Bromwich Albion on a temporary basis, which has made it difficult for Jack Stobbs to be named in matchday squads, which is why the club are considering loan him out during this transfer window.

The Leeds-born forward has been a prominent member of the Owls’ under-23 squad this season, and most recently scored and provided two assists in a 5-3 victory against Notts County.

It’s understood that Stobbs is content with going out on loan and several teams from the Football League’s bottom two divisions have enquired about acquiring the winger’s services.

On the pitch, Carlos Carvalhal’s side sit in sixth place in the Sky Bet Championship having amassed 42 points from 25 league games so far this season.

The Owls face off against high-flying Huddersfield Town at Hillsborough on Saturday in a Yorkshire derby, that both teams will be hoping to claim victory to aid their promotion pushes.
