FLW reported earlier in the month that Wigan Athletic were targeting a move for the former Blackpool winger, but their interest has seemingly faded.

The Owls have recently been taken over in a £30 million deal by Thai businessman Dejphon Chansiri, thus meaning there is transfer funds available at the club.

Phillips, 23, has struggled for game time this season at Harry Redknapp’s QPR, and it would be no surprise to see the winger leave the club before the January transfer deadline on Monday.

Sheffield Wednesday boss spoke about the possibility of signing Phillips to the Star, saying: “I am always interested in good players. I think Matt has been linked with Derby but I don’t think that’s happened.

“We need to bring players into this football club who are going to be better than the ones we have got. Phillips is one that we are interested in.”

Meanwhile, the Owls look set to sign CSKA Sofia striker Sergiu Bus, as reported on FLW earlier this week.

Bus, 22, joined Bulgarian side CSKA Sofia in 2014 from CFR Cluj, and he has since gone on to make 19 appearances, scoring ten goals for the club.

The young forward has spent the majority of his career spent out on loan and is seemingly yet to settle down at one particular club.

Bus has made five appearances for the Romanian under-21 side, scoring one goal however he has not made an appearance for the Romania senior side as of yet.

The Owls were defeated 2-0 by Steve Clarke’s Reading on Saturday at the Madejski Stadium, courtesy of goals from Pavel Pogrebnyak and Chelsea loanee Nathaniel Chalobah.
