Huddersfield Town are reportedly set to make a move for Sheffield Wednesday forward Jordan Rhodes according to The Sun on Sunday (18th April, page 67).
Rhodes has struggled for consistent game time with the Owls in recent seasons, and has made 34 appearances in all competitions this term.
He has scored seven goals in those outings as well, and will be hoping he can finish this year’s campaign strongly with Darren Moore’s side.
His efforts haven’t quite been enough it seems though, with Sheffield Wednesday currently sat 23rd in the Championship table, and seven points adrift of safety heading into their final four matches of the 2021/22 season.
Rhodes is out-of-contract with the Owls at the end of this season, and could be tempted by a move to his former club, which he spent three full seasons with earlier in his career.
We take a look at ONE winner and ONE loser at Huddersfield Town, as they look set to make their move to sign Rhodes ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Find out who they are, below….
Winner: Carlos Corberan
The Huddersfield Town manager would likely be the biggest winner if Rhodes was to sign for the club in the summer transfer window.
Additional options in attack are always going to be welcome for a manager, and he’d be hoping that Rhodes could hit the ground running to fire them up the table.
Rhodes has shown in the past that he can score goals on a consistent basis in the Championship, and will surely be looking to get his career back on track, after a frustrating few seasons with Sheffield Wednesday.
The forward would be in familiar surroundings at the John Smith’s Stadium as well, having previously scored 86 goals in 147 appearances for Huddersfield Town.
The club’s supporters are likely to be another winner here, as the majority are likely to be delighted to see Rhodes return to the club.
Are these facts about Sheffield Wednesday's shirts over the years genuine or fake?
Loser: Danny Ward
The Huddersfield Town forward would be the loser if a deal for Rhodes was completed in the near future.
Ward has only made four league starts from his 15 appearances in the Championship this season, and has spent the majority of this year’s campaign on the substitutes bench, as he’s often played as the club’s second-choice striker behind Fraizer Campbell.
Ward would only be pushed further down the pecking order if Jordan Rhodes was to return to the John Smith’s Stadium, as he’s a forward that has a proven record in front of goal at this level.
Ward is contracted with Huddersfield Town until the summer of 2023, so it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see him move on either permanently or temporarily ahead fo the 2021/22 campaign.
