The Swedish defender, Alexander Milosevic, is considering a contract offer from Sheffield Wednesday, according to  Fotboll Direkt.

But what do we know about the player? Here are five facts to get you up to speed…

Where does he play?

Milosevic is a natural centre-back and has played there exclusively throughout his career. Standing at 6ft 3ins tall, it’s easy to see why – although his ability on the ball somewhat belies his towering frame. He’s predominantly right-footed but is also capable with his left.

Who does he play for?

AIK in Sweden – the club at which he made his name before leaving in 2015. Now 26, he has since played for Besiktas, Hannover 96, Darmstadt 98 and Caykur Rizespor, but returned to AIK in February this year.

What’s his situation?

Milosevic only signed a 10-month contract back at the Friends Arena, and can therefore talk to clubs about a free transfer move next month. As well as Wednesday, he is said to have offers from Russian clubs after turning down approaches from Israel and Cyprus.

Is he any good?

Arsenal, Liverpool and Celtic were among the clubs credited with interest at the start of Milosevic’s career, which appears to have stalled upon joining Besiktas. But at not quite 27, there is still time yet for him to rediscover his best form. Milosevic, who has a Serbian father, has also been capped five times by Sweden.

Here’s something interesting…

During his first spell at AIK, Milosevic was also linked with a move to Sunderland – then managed by the prospective new Sheffield Wednesday manager, Steve Bruce. Could it be that Bruce’s plans are already being put into action at Hillsborough?
