‘Would be a class signing’ – Yorkshire side eye deal to sign Sheffield Wednesday man: Opinion

Sheffield Wednesday manager Steve Bruce saw his side slip to only their second defeat of his reign, when they fell to a 1-0 defeat to Yorkshire rivals Leeds United at the weekend.

This result leaves the Owls down in 10th place in the Championship, six points off the play-off places with four matches of the season remaining.

Bruce has opted for goalkeeper Kieren Westwood since arriving at Hillsborough, with the Republic of Ireland international having played 19 times so far this season.

But with the 34-year-old’s contract expiring in the summer, Huddersfield Town have shortlisted the player as a potential summer target, as reported in the print edition of the Sun on Sunday (April 14, page 61).

So would Westwood be a good signing for Huddersfield?

We discuss……..

Sam Rourke

“Would be a class signing.

“Westwood is still playing at the top of his game despite his age, and undoubtedly has another one or two seasons in him playing at this level.

“It’d be a very shrewd buy from the Terriers, but the Owls would be silly to let him go.”

George Harbey

“I would be a smart move for Huddersfield to be honest.

“Westwood may be getting on a bit at the age of 34-years old, but he is still a very good goalkeeper and would still do a job at this level.

“In my view, Wednesday need to tie him down to a new deal, as he has been superb in the second half of the campaign.”

Jacob Potter

“This would be a huge blow for Sheffield Wednesday.

“Westwood has been in excellent form since returning to the first-team picture and he’ll be a huge miss if he is to leave in the summer.

“Huddersfield are making a smart move in trying to sign him before the season is up.”
