Sheffield wednesday Duo Steven Fletcher & Morgan Fox Interesting Clarets
According to reports on TEAMtalk, the Clarets are among eight clubs chasing Sky Bet Championship duo Steven Fletcher & Morgan Fox from Sheffield Wednesday as both are out of contract this summer and despite the Owls strong desire to retain the pair it appears the two players will make their exits in the coming months.
Former Claret and Scottish striker Steven Fletcher has been a popular figure during his four year spell with Sheffield Wednesday and he had already bagged 13 goals this season before it was cut short because of Coronavirus. It’s understood his current club would like to extend his stay, but rival interest is emerging and The Owls are struggling to come up with terms to satisfy the veteran’s demands.
The situation is also not helped by the fact the club were under financial investigation from the Football league after being charged late last year with breaching EFL rules. Now the likes of West Brom, Derby County and Stoke City are ready to make a move for the thirty three year old. However, Fletcher is unlikely to be the only big name departure with Welsh ace Morgan Fox set to follow him through the exit doors amid similar difficulties in convincing the full-back to extend his stay.
Fox, like Fletcher has a host of clubs chasing his signature and the left wing-back has clubs from the Premier League, Sky Bet Championship and Scotland circling. Burnley, Norwich City, AFC Bournemouth, West Brom, Middlesbrough and Rangers are revealed to be interested in a possible summer swoop.
