Keiren Westwood is a target for Stoke City, according to The Sheffield Star.
Sheffield Wednesday’s goalkeeper is attracting interest from the relegated side, who sold Lee Grant to Manchester United earlier in the transfer window.
Westwood has been earmarked by Gary Rowett as a potential replacement for Grant.
The Star is also reporting that the Owls are looking to reduce the size of their squad and shrinking their wage bill to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations.
The 33-year-old made 18 appearances for the Hillsborough club last term, registering three clean sheets.
Westwood has one-year left on his current deal with the Championship club.
Owls boss Jos Luhukay had told the press the goalkeeper had a slight injury, before the Republic of Ireland international used social media to confirm he was fit.
????????I missed 1 training session last Thursday.I’m not injured and haven’t been all preseason. Thanks to everyone who messaged me with concern but I’m grand ???? Missing one training session since the 18th June proves I’m 100% not injured ???????? I’m Stronger&Fitter than iv ever been! https://t.co/wosPLF6Jzv

This fitness row could spell the end of Westwood’s Wednesday career, with Stoke showing interest in bringing the goalkeeper to the bet365 Stadium.
Should Keiren Westwood move to Stoke, it would be a good singing.
He is a decent back-up to Jack Butland, and even if the England international chose to move on, then the Sheffield Wednesday man would be a solid choice as a first-team goalkeeper.
This injury row shows that there is some discontent brewing at Hillsborough ahead of the new season.
Wednesday are yet to add to their team this summer, having let two players leave.
Westwood has just one-year left on his deal and it could be a good time for the 33-year-old to get out of the club.
