Sheffield Wednesday are lining up a transfer swoop for former Brentford defender, Moses Odubajo according to The Sun’s Mike McGrath.
The journalist broke the news on Wednesday, and Sheffield Wednesday are evidently looking to conduct their transfer business as swiftly as possible ahead of next year’s campaign.

Odubajo struggled for regular game time with Brentford last season, and was limited to 22 league starts for the Bees as they finished 11th in the Championship table.
But the club revealed that Odubajo was set to leave upon the expiration of his contract, which has alerted clubs into signing him before next season gets underway.
Steve Bruce knows the right-back well, having previously worked with him in their time together at Hull City, and the Sheffield Wednesday boss seemingly thinks that Odubajo will be a useful addition to his side once again.
The report also claims that the Owls are targeting former Cardiff City man, Kadeem Harris, who is also available on a free transfer.
Sheffield Wednesday finished the season strongly last season, and finished one place below Brentford in the league table.
They’ll be keen to fire themselves into promotion contention next season, and with Bruce in charge, the Hillsborough faithful have every reason to believe they can achieve that.
This would be a really good signing, if they can pull it off.
Odubajo is a player with proven experience in the Championship, and has been unlucky with the injuries he’s picked up in recent years.
I think he could play a starring role for Steve Bruce’s side next season, as they target a top six finish to give themselves a chance of winning promotion to the Premier League.
