Report: Sheffield Wednesday open talks with freed Cardiff City winger Kadeem Harris

The Sheffield Wednesday manager, Steve Bruce, has opened talks with the former Cardiff City winger, Kedeem Harris, according to The Sun’s Mike McGrath.

Harris played 13 times as Cardiff slid straight back out of the Premier League last season.

But the 25-year-old failed to earn a new deal in Wales, and his release was confirmed last week – much to the disappointment of several Bluebirds supporters on Twitter.

A direct and pacy player, with no transfer fee and release potential, Harris appears to tick multiple boxes for Wednesday.

But it is claimed the Owls could face competition from Middlesbrough for the player who began life at Wycombe Wanderers.

And geography could work in Wednesday’s favour, being in area with which Harris should have some knowledge following a loan spell at Barnsley, and one that is closer to his London roots.

Harris has played 57 times at Championship level, and scored or made 11 goals.
