With the summer transfer rumour mill in full flow now, Sheffield Wednesday have already been linked with moves for a few players and it’s been claimed that we are now preparing to go north of the border for Kilmarnock’s Stuart Findlay.
The 23-year-old defender made 32 appearances for the side this year in the Scottish Premiership and he chipped in with three goals as well and the Scottish Sun have claimed this week that manager Steve Bruce was at their game against Hibernian to scout the centre-back as he continues to plan his squad for the coming 2019/20 Championship campaign.
It was initially believed he was there to watch son, Alex, but apparently not.
The youngster was called into the senior Scotland squad for the first time for their recent European Championship 2020 qualifiers against Kazakhstan and San Marino so his stock is on the rise, but he didn’t get on the pitch.
He apparently has two years remaining on his existing deal but having signed him as a free agent from Newcastle United last summer, it’s claimed that Kilmarnock will be open to quickly cashing in on him, despite qualifying for the Europa League this year.
The paper doesn’t state a fee but it makes perfect sense to have a backup option to Chelsea’s Michael Hector if we can’t get that deal over the line.
