According to Dom Howson of Yorkshire Live, Sheffield Wednesday haven’t “held talks” with Lyle Taylor over a summer move, so it remains to be seen if the 30-year-old is still a realistic transfer target. Taylor was linked with a move to Wednesday earlier in the season, but the Owls don’t appear to be pursuing him currently.
Howson said: “Taylor has been linked with Wednesday before and is a good player. I think he would score more goals in a better team. But I have not heard anything to suggest Wednesday have held talks with him.”
The Montserrat international has spent the last two years at Charlton Athletic, joining the Addicks on a free transfer from AFC Wimbledon. He’s gone on to make 67 appearances in all competitions, scoring 36 goals and making 14 assists, but he may be available this summer as his contract is up.
Taylor has rebuffed Charlton’s efforts to tie him down to a new deal, so Wednesday could return for him when he’s a free agent. The Owls could be in the market for a new striker as Steven Fletcher, Fernando Forestieri, Sam Winnall, Fraser Preston and Atdhe Nuhiu are all soon-to-be out of contract, but Taylor may have a lot of interest.
The 30-year-old scored 11 goals and made one assist in 22 Championship appearances for Athletic this season, so Wednesday could be one of many clubs keen on his signature.
