Sheffield Wednesday are interested in West Brom goalkeeper David Button.

That is according to a report from Birmingham Live, which suggests the Owls could move for the out-of-favour Baggies man.

Button, 34, looks like surprlus to requirements at West Brom this summer. He’s fallen well down the pecking order at The Hawthorns and reports earlier today claimed that he was set to join Reading.

That claim has been played down by Birmingham Live, who say that the Royals are interested in a move for Button, and that Wednesday are too.

Cameron Dawson is Sheffield Wednesday’s only first-team goalkeeper as things stand, but new boss Xisco Munoz has seen his side linked with the likes of Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Axel Werner this summer.

Munoz himself has suggested that a goalkeeper signing is close.

Last season, Button began the campaign as West Brom’s no.1. Despite a string of poor performances, ex-Sheffield Wednesday boss Steve Bruce was quick to defend the ‘experienced’ Button, but Bruce’s exit coincided with Button’s eventual demise.

Could Button come to the rescue for Wednesday?

A new goalkeeper is certainly a must for Sheffield Wednesday this summer, and given the position they’re in, Championship experience could be crucial going into next season.

Button would give the Owls just that – he has 363 career appearances to his name and he’s had decent spells with the likes of Brentford, Fulham, and Brighton, often playing in the second tier.

He had his struggles last season but he remains a player with experience and, given his tough time last time round, he will surely be eager to prove his doubters wrong next season, and Hillsborough could be his next destination.

Beating Reading to this signing could be difficult for the Owls but, with Championship football to offer, expect Wednesday to be in a strong position here.
