Sheffield Wednesday’s hopes of offloading Keiren Westwood to Blackburn Rovers appear to have taken a hit.

According to Lancashire Live, Westwood was the subject of an enquiry from Blackburn last week.

And The Star reported at the start of this one that the Irishman is training with Wednesday’s Under-23s as his first-team exile continues.

Westwood is thought to be one of the club’s highest-earning players and still has 10 months to run on his contract at Hillsborough.

But it remains to be seen if Blackburn will do the Owls a favour and take the 35-year-old off their hands, after Rovers signed Thomas Kaminski instead.

According to Transfermarkt, Wednesday’s Championship rivals have paid £450,000 for the Belgian goalkeeper, who arrives at Ewood Park from Gent.

And given his experience – Kaminski played Europa League football for Gent last season – the 27-year-old will perhaps fancy his chances of being Blackburn’s number one this campaign.

Only one of Rovers’ other keepers, Andy Fisher, has played senior football for any club before now.

But even if Tony Mowbray’s team are pursuing more support in Westwood’s position, the Wednesday man could prove an expensive back-up.
