Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing Preston North End striker Jayden Stockley in the summer transfer window, according to reports.
The Lowdown: Moore on the lookout for new signings

With a number of players expected to leave this summer, Darren Moore will be eyeing up reinforcements, looking to mastermind his side’s return to the second tier.

The Latest: Owls linked with Stockley move
According to the Lancashire Post, Wednesday are one of a number of clubs keen on making a move for Stockley, with the 27-year-old potentially leaving Preston.
Portsmouth are another of those clubs mentioned in the report, but the Owls are also in the hunt, and it is ‘up to Stockley where he wants to go.’
The Verdict: A move that makes sense
The striker could be a solid addition for Moore’s side, having scored eight goals and registered two assists on loan at Charlton Athletic last season.
While not necessarily prolific, he could be a good squad player, with his 6ft 3in frame making him a handful for opposition defenders.
Stockley won an incredible 9.8 aerial battles per game for the Addicks, highlighting what a monstrous presence he can be in the air, which could come in very handy in League One.
