QPR reportedly eye bargain deal for Owls ace Jordan Rhodes

According to The Sun, Queens Park Rangers are keen on a deal for Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes 18 months after turning down the chance to sign him.

The Hoops are looking to strengthen in the January transfer window.

A lack of goals has been a problem and QPR are trying to rectify that.

The Sun claim they are looking at signing Wednesday forward Rhodes and they are keen to take advantage with his contract at Hillsborough due to expire this coming summer.

Ironically, West London Sport claimed in 2019 how QPR were offered the chance to sign Rhodes on loan but passed up the opportunity with the forward joining Norwich City.

The Owls have turned down other decent offers for Rhodes in the past. However, they are no longer in a position to command a decent fee and they could cash in on him now.

Wednesday, meanwhile, will look to make some much-needed additions this month.

Rhodes just hasn’t fit in the current side. Goals remain a problem for the Owls, and a new striker and wide player will surely top the club’s wish-list over the next few weeks.
