Sheffield Wednesday have rejected an offer from Wigan to take Jordan Rhodes on loan.
The Owls are keen to strengthen their attack this month meaning that they could be looking to move some players out of the club before the end of the January transfer window.
However as it stands, a departure for Rhodes is not on the cards.
According to the Sheffield Star, the Latics made a move to sign the 29-year-old until the end of the season but their offer was not deemed to be good enough.
The report claims that Wigan’s offered included ‘a derisory loan fee and only offered to pay a small proportion of Rhodes’ salary’.
Whether the Championship strugglers will return with another offer remains to be seen, with Rhodes likely to continue as a peripheral figure this term.
The striker has started just four games so far this term and if the club do move for another front man then it might be that Rhodes finds himself moving further down the pecking order.
While this bid has been rejected it wouldn’t be a surprise to see more interest in Jordan Rhodes.
The striker is seemingly not part of Garry Monk’s plans at Sheffield Wednesday and it seems that if a suitable offer was received then the striker could move on.
There’s bound to be plenty of interest in Rhodes, the only stumbling block will no doubt be the substantial cost of any deal.
