Some Cardiff City supporters are urging their club not to sell Callum Paterson, after the Scotland international was linked with a move to Sheffield Wednesday.
Wednesday are ‘locked in talks’ to sign Paterson, who has yet to appear for Cardiff this season, according to Yorkshire Live.
And it is claimed that the 25-year-old would become a permanent Owls player if an agreement is reached between the two clubs.
In his 106 games for Cardiff, Paterson has scored or assisted 29 goals, and helped the Bluebirds to promotion to the Premier League in his debut season at the club.
And it seems the versatile former Hearts player, who has featured at right wing-back, centre-froward and in various midfield roles, would be sorely missed.
Seeing Callum Paterson linked with a move to Sheffield Wednesday is not the news I wanted today. Would definitely miss the scotsman too much. #CCFC

I think the problem with Paterson is that he doesn’t have a main position. He is a workhorse and chases everything and that’s extremely useful if we need that bit of energy in a game. It’s a strange one for me.

Paterson’s versatility makes him an attractive an option for Wednesday, who are thought to want to strengthen their options on the right-hand side as well as in attack.
The Owls were left depleted in both positions after the departures of Jacob Murphy and Steven Fletcher, in particular, at the end of last season and can effectively kill two birds with one stone by signing a player with Paterson’s energy and physical presence.
