Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly keen to sign Cardiff City winger Josh Murphy according to Football Insider.
It is also claimed that both Nottingham Forest and Derby County are interested in a deal to sign the 25-year-old, who has struggled for consistent game time this term in the Championship.
Murphy has made just three league starts this season for Neil Harris’ side, who are currently sat 15th in the Championship table after 23 matches.
A move to Sheffield Wednesday could tempt Murphy, as he goes in search of find regular game time this season. The Owls are currently sat 23rd in the second-tier standings, and will be eager to pull themselves clear of the relegation zone at the earliest of opportunities.
Sheffield Wednesday previously had Josh’s brother Jacob on loan with them during the 2019/20 season, and you would imagine that he’ll be keen to replicate his brother’s strong run of performances in his brief spell with the club.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on the club’s rumoured interest in signing Murphy before the closure of the January transfer window.

🤷♂️Do we need another winger just now ?

He’s better than you. He’s better than youuu. Your brother. He’s better than you.

Why we even looking at wingers. That’s not our week point

I'd take him

Would happily take him but I’d be surprised if we’ve got the money for a transfer fee? We’ve certainly struggled for creativity out wide and the two existing options are out of contract

Waste of money, we need strikers.

I think it would be a poor signing. He rarely gets in the Cardiff team and isn't anywhere near the same standard as Jacob.

Would be happy with this. Another improved option on the wing. But for the love of god Wendy, sign a striker. https://t.co/WlUTggISk6
