Ipswich Town and Huddersfield Town have both tabled formal contract offers for Jordan Rhodes, according to reports from Football Insider.
Football League World exclusively revealed that the Sheffield Wednesday striker was attracting serious interest from the two clubs due to his ongoing contract situation at the club.
Rhodes is one of a number of Owls’ players who find themselves with an uncertain future with his deal set to expire this summer.
With Darren Moore’s side now relegated to League One it seems increasingly unlikely that the 31-year-old will be sticking around at Hillsborough next term.
According to the report from Football Insider, both Ipswich and Huddersfield Town have tabled three-year deals for the striker as they look to tempt Rhodes into a summer move.
Having spent time with both clubs during his career there’s an argument to suggest that Rhodes could be tempted by both offers, but as revealed by FLW it’s thought that Huddersfield are still in pole position to complete the deal for the Yorkshire lad.
Rhodes enjoyed a wonderful time with the Terriers between 2009 and 2012, scoring 87 goals in 148 appearances for the club.
However with interest building in the experienced attacker it remains to be seen where his future will lie as attention turns to the new season.

Jordan Rhodes is going to be a very busy man this summer.
Despite a pretty disappointing time with Sheffield Wednesday, the striker’s track record in the EFL certainly speaks for itself and that’s why it’s no surprise that he’s attracting such substantial interest.
Huddersfield Town and Ipswich Town are currently in the running, but it will be no surprise to see a number of other Championship and League One clubs joining the race.
With that in mind it’ll be very interesting to see which club puts forward the best proposal for a player who needs his next move to be a success.
