Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing Burnley goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell on loan, according to journalist Alan Nixon.
The Lowdown: Moore eyes up new signings
The Owls are looking to have a productive summer transfer window, strengthening their League One promotion push in the process.
It is Darren Moore’s first real chance to build his own team at Hillsborough and the hope is that he is able to bring in ideal new signings.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
The Latest: Peacock-Farrell linked with move
According to Nixon on Twitter, ‘Sheff Wed love a loan’ and would be interested in signing Peacock-Farrell on a temporary basis ahead of next season.
The 24-year-old made four Premier League starts for Burnley in 2020/21, but otherwise found himself playing second fiddle to Nick Pope.
The Verdict: Shrewd target for Owls
Peacock-Farrell could be a shrewd signing for Wednesday, especially as Keiren Westwood has now moved on to pastures new.
Cameron Dawson and Joe Wildsmith are both solid goalkeepers, but it could be argued that the Burnley man would be a significant step up from their level. He has Premier League experience and has won 23 caps for Northern Ireland, highlighting his pedigree as a potential addition at Hillsborough.
Michael O’Neill, his manager at international level, has lauded some “assured and confident” performances from the 24-year-old in the past, and the player himself might just fancy a change of scenery to somewhere that he will achieve regular game-time.
In other news, Darren Moore has hailed one Sheff Wed player after the Owls’ return to action. Find out who it is here.
