Sheffield Wednesday: Expecting second bid from Sunderland for Morgan Fox

Sheffield Wednesday are expecting a second bid from Sunderland for Morgan Fox, according to The Star.

The Black Cats have already seen one bid for the left-back knocked back, but are set to make another, with Jack Ross making competition for Denver Hume a priority.

The Sunderland Echo has reported that the 25-year-old could be keen on a move to The Stadium of Light.

Fox has previously claimed he hopes to win round Sheffield Wednesday supporters, after being booed by his own team’s fans during the win against Luton Town, as reported by The Star.

Fox has featured in two games for Wednesday this season, playing the full 90 minutes in each of them, as per WhoScored, with both opportunities coming as a result of Liam Palmer’s back injury.

During those games, the 25-year-old averaged 3.5 tackles, 0.5 interceptions, 3 clearances and 0.5 blocks, while he has also made 0.5 key passes per game, completing 68.3% of the passes he makes.

While it seems as though Palmer is remaining as Bullen’s first-choice left-back, a position the Scotland international is likely to take up once he returns from injury, this highlights Fox can be an effective back-up option at the very least.

It would be silly to let Fox go, especially as he cannot be replaced until January unless Wednesday were to move for a free agent.

Fox has shown he can be a good back-up option and with Palmer only set to be in contention for a place on Saturday, it is unclear how his back will react and to what extent Fox could be needed in the short-term or long-term.
