According to a report by ExWHUemployee, reported Sheffield Wednesday target Nathan Holland has returned to fitness and could be ready for a January move.

The Hammers youngster started last season on fire in the youth leagues.

Holland, an England U19 international, scored 11 goals and posted a further six assists in 12 Premier League 2 matches, prompting plenty of interest.

Football Insider claimed Sheffield Wednesday were among those keen on him.

Holland moved to Oxford United on loan in the second half of last season, but his spell with the club was cut short through injuries and later the global health pandemic.

Football Insider claimed West Ham were open to selling Holland in the summer, originally valuing him at £2 million but open to receiving a fee of around half that amount.

A transfer, however, never materialised with the wide man nursing a hamstring injury.

But now, ExWHUemployee claims Holland is back to full fitness and raring to go.

Wednesday have just hired manager Tony Pulis as Garry Monk’s successor. While the former Boro man will have his own targets in mind, a new wide player is a priority.

Adam Reach has often filled in at left wingback due to a lack of options, while Elias Kachunga – another wide option – has been mainly used as a centre-forward so far.

Holland could be a decent option for the Owls, and he represents a long-term solution.

Football Insider also added how David Moyes doesn’t see him ready for the Premier League yet. With a contract until 2022, he’s running out of time to make an impression in east London.
