Liverpool, who find themselves in a goalkeeping crisis, are currently fielding Simon Mignolet, who is lacking confidence and was dropped by Brendan Rogers for Brad Jones, only for Jones to get injured.

Westwood has been in impressive form of late and the Republic of Ireland international insists he is happy at the club.

“I’m really happy to be here. I’m enjoying my football and Sheffield Wednesday is a fantastic club to play for,” Westwood told The Star.

He continued: “I’m delighted with how things have gone and really happy to be playing football again,” said the star shot-stopper, who was watched on by Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane in their midweek win at Wigan Athletic.

“I had to kick-start my career again, which I think I have done and long may it continue.

“Sometimes things just fit.

“The fans have taken taken to me. I have taken to the club.

“I’m happy and have really enjoyed it.”

The 30-year-old goalkeeper didn’t feature in the 2-1 FA Cup defeat to Manchester City, where the Championship side had gone in front through Atdhe Nuhiu, before a James Milner double sealed it for the Premier League outfit.

Stuart Gray’s side currently sit in tenth position in the Sky Bet Championship, having accumulated 34 points from 24 league games.

The Sheffield side have won their last two games in the Championship, beating Blackpool 1-0 and Wigan 1-0.

Westwood, 30, has been pivotal to the club in recent weeks with a string of impressive performances for the Owls.

It is no shock to see top-flight clubs interested in a move for the keeper, however Wednesday boss Stuart Gray will no doubt want to keep hold of one the club’s most prized assets.
