Another member of the Rhodes family could end up at Sheffield Wednesday – if Steve Bruce arrives as manager.
Bruce has been strongly linked with the Hillsborough hotseat currently occupied by Jos Luhukay.
According to one journalist, however, Bruce is not yet ready to commit to the Owls.
Alan Nixon, the Sun reporter who broke the news of Luhukay’s then-impeding appointment, posted on Twitter that Bruce: “wants more time to decide on next move and a clear idea on budget and ambition”.
But if Bruce is to be named Luhukay’s successor, it is claimed he could be joined by Steve Agnew – his former first team coach at Aston Villa, and the uncle of the Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes.
Rhodes, whose father, Andy, was the Owls’ goalkeeper coach between 2010 and June of this year, is currently on a season-long loan to Norwich City, but still has two-and-a-half years left on his Hillsborough contract.
And should Norwich decline the chance to sign him on a permanent basis, the chance to reunite with Agnew, with whom he worked at Middlesbrough, could appeal to the 28-year-old.
Sheffield Wednesday have another striker, Gary Hooper, out of contract next summer – creating a vacancy, perhaps, for Rhodes’ return. And a chance for the Scotland international to resurrect his Owls career.
