Report: Premier League club have made approach for Sheffield Wednesday's Dominic Iorfa

The Sheffield Wednesday centre-back Dominic Iorfa is understood to have been the subject of an enquiry from a Premier League club, according to The Independent.

The newspaper claims that Iorfa, who was voted Wednesday’s player of the year last season, also has interest from the Owls’ Championship rivals, Watford, and others in England’s second tier.

But it is said that any Watford move ‘may depend upon outgoings’.

Wednesday are reported to have paid Wolverhampton Wanderers £250,000 for Iorfa in January 2019, although his valuation is likely to have increased significantly in that time.

It is unclear, however, how much the Owls would want for the 25-year-old – or if they are even willing to discuss his sale.

Wednesday failed to disclose the length of Iorfa’s contract, although he still has two years left to run on his Hillsborough deal, according to Transfermarkt.

The Owls continue to be linked with a move for Iorfa’s former Wolves teammate Dion Sanderson, who like the Southend-born player is comfortable at both centre- and right-back.

Watford have already sold Abdoluaye Doucoure and Pervis Estupinan for a combined fee claimed to be around £35 million, since their relegation from the Premier League.

But the Hornets have also exiled several big-name players in the early part of this season, with further departures expected.
