Sheffield Wednesday join Nottingham Forest in hunt for bargain transfer deal

Sheffield Wednesday have entered the race for Max Clark, according to The Yorkshire Post.

Hull City defender Clark is set to leave the KCOM Stadium at the end of the month after failing to agree a new contract with the club.

The Tigers had an offer on the table from last September but refused to budge on those terms and now Clark is set to depart with a host of clubs chasing his signature.

The attack-minded left-back, who can also play as a winger, impressed during his 30 games for Hull last season and is now wanted by three Championship clubs and a team from abroad.

Nottingham Forest and Millwall have been long-term admirers of the 22-year-old, who will be available for a compensation fee this summer.

Meanwhile, former Hull manager Leonid Slutsky is hoping to reunite with Clark at Vitesse Arnhem in the Dutch league.

But Sheffield Wednesday have entered the race with Jos Luhukay searching the market for cheap new additions to strengthen his squad.

Czech left-back Daniel Pudil has signed a new contract at the club and the Owls also have Morgan Fox on their books but they may look to move the Welshman on and improve in that department.

The Verdict

Fox has come in for a lot of criticism from Sheffield Wednesday fans and you have to feel that he is not quite up to the standard required for a Championship promotion push.

In the best interests of his career and Sheffield Wednesday, he should be allowed to leave – probably to League One – while Clark would be an excellent replacement.

The youngster would probably be behind Pudil to start with in the pecking order but he is the long-term replacement for the 32-year-old veteran full-back.
