Cardiff City midfielder Will Vaulks is ‘open’ to joining Sheffield Wednesday in the summer transfer window, according to reliable journalist Joe Crann.
The Lowdown: Vaulks leaving Cardiff
The Owls have an important summer ahead of them as Darren Moore looks to rebuild his squad and inspire what is hopefully a successful 2022/23 season.
One player who will be available is Vaulks, with the 28-year-old out of contract at Cardiff and leaving the club at the end of this month.
It looks as though a host of clubs are in the race to sign the midfielder, with Wednesday one of those in question.
The Latest: Owls in the race
The reporter claimed:
“Been told that Stoke City, Luton Town, QPR and Huddersfield Town have all shown an interest in #SWFC target, Will Vaulks.
“He is open to League One with Wednesday, but is certainly weighing up his options.”
The Verdict: Would be a coup
It is imperative that Wednesday do all they can to get out of League One next season, having fallen short in the play-offs this time around.
Acquiring Vaulks’ signature could be significant in that respect, with the midfielder possessing plenty of experience in the second tier, making 186 appearances at that level. He has also been capped seven times by Wales and been hailed as “brilliant” in the past by his former Cardiff manager Mick McCarthy.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
Yes, of course!
No, not good enough!
His quality could really shine through in League One, allowing Moore’s side to dominate midfield battles, and he could dovetail nicely with the likes of George Byers and Barry Bannan, should they remain at Hillsborough.
