Sheffield Wednesday are very active in the transfer window as they have already made three signings, and the latest news suggests that they have a fourth transfer target in mind.
According to Dom Howson on Twitter, who is a journalist for The Star, Wednesday are working very hard on a deal to bring winger Jacob Murphy back to Hillsborough.
The Englishman is well known to those associated with the Owls as he was on loan from Premier League side Newcastle last season. During this period, he played 39 times in the Championship, scoring nine goals and picking up six assists, per Transfermarkt.
This ranked him as the second highest scorer at the club in 2019/20, per WhoScored, and it emphasises why a lot of supporters would like to see him return next season.
A deal to bring him back to the club won’t be easy however, as Glasgow Rangers, Middlesbrough, Derby County, Stoke City and Nottingham Forest are all interested in signing the 25 year-old according to Howson.

Apart from him getting 1st team football at Newcastle we must be in a strong position compared to the other clubs interested 👍🏻

It depends if anyone with the money wants to buy him, or pay to have him on loan. I’d love to see him back, but we need a striker for him to be effective. Neither him, Windass, or Leko are anything better than useful players to have. We need them, but need more up front.
