According to the Athletic, reported Sheffield Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers target Andre Green is waiting for the right offer following his release from Aston Villa.

The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Preston North End and Charlton Athletic.

The winger initially extended his contract at Villa to remain with Charlton post lockdown, but he has since been released from the Villans who he joined as a youngster.

Green took to Twitter at the end of the summer to say his goodbyes to Villa.

The Sun on Sunday (4 October; Page 59) claimed both Sheffield Wednesday and Queens Park Rangers were keen on him, but there was confusion over his contract situation.

Green ultimately missed out on a deal elsewhere before the transfer window shut.

Now the Athletic says the winger is keeping up with his fitness, while waiting on the right offer to join a new club in the upcoming January transfer window.

Could the Owls or QPR go back in for him?

The former England U20 international has plenty of Championship experience, making 18 appearances during Villa’s promotion to the Premier League in 2018/19.

Green has pace, directness and decent energy levels. While predominantly a winger, the 22-year-old can play on either flank and perhaps also in a deeper role.

The Owls have largely featured with a 3-4-3 system this season. Adam Reach and Kadeem Harris down the left, with Moses Odubajo and Elias Kachunga as options on the right.

Green may be an ideal candidate to cover up to four positions at Hillsborough.

QPR, however, could renew their interest in January and manager Mark Warburton has a history of signing young free agents released by teams higher up the pyramid.
