It’s been reported that Sheffield Wednesday are battling with Aston Villa to secure the signing of former England international and current Chelsea centre-half Gary Cahill.

The ever reliable Sun probably out did themselves late yesterday evening when the publish the piece of absolute nonsense, but hey ho it gives me another opportunity to giggle at the gutter tabloid.

Cahill’s future at Stamford Bridge has been in doubt having lost his regular spot in the heart of the defence under new manager Maurizio Sarri and it’s said the 32-year-old will seek talks and ask for a move in January if game time doesn’t improve between now and then.

He’s already been linked with plenty of clubs and having come through Aston Villa’s set up all those years ago they are an obvious go-to, especially as manager Steve Bruce appears to be the only other natural centre-half at the club these days.

The tie to Wednesday hinges on him being a boyhood Owl apparently and that’s something I certainly wasn’t aware of but I think there’s more chance of me winning the National Lottery without a buying a ticket than there is of us being able to pay his wages, especially as the 61 capped international will have Premier League suitors if he moves on.

Unless I’m really missing something – and yes it would be an incredible deal if we could pull it off – I think filing it in the ‘stupid’ bin would be giving it too much credence.
