Sheffield Wednesday reportedly face fresh competition for the signing of Solihull Moors attacker Kyle Hudlin, with Cardiff City linked with a move.
The Lowdown: Sheff Wed keen on Hudlin move
Darren Moore is looking to mastermind the Owls’ return to the Championship following a hugely disappointing 2020/21 season.
A host of experienced faces are expected to leave this summer as their contracts near expiry, so the main aim is to sign emerging talent who can bring a freshness to the squad.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
The Latest: Cardiff emerge as rivals to sign striker
According to Yorkshire Live, Cardiff are now also eyeing a move for the 20-year-old, with Mick McCarthy hoping that Championship football turns the striker’s head at the expense of Sheffield Wednesday.
Hudlin only joined Solihull last October but he has impressed in that time, scoring 10 goals in 36 appearances for the National League side.
The Verdict: Potential blow for Owls
Hudlin looks an exciting prospect, so it would be a blow if Cardiff were to swoop in over Wednesday and snap him up this summer.
Unfortunately, the Bluebirds have the advantage of playing in a higher division that the Owls, which could be enough to persuade him to move there.
The hope is that Hudlin sees Wednesday as someone for whom he could start regularly, becoming a prominent figure over time.
