Sheffield Wednesday are planning to make a move for Rotherham United’s Danny Ward according to a report from the Sheffield Telegraph.
While the Millers have struggled this season and are currently the bottom of the Sky Bet Championship, Ward has performed well and has been one of the few bright spots that is getting the fans through this season. He has managed to score nine goals this season in difficult circumstances and with Rotherham staring Sky Bet League One in the face, many teams are interested in signing Ward.
In the race currently a whole host of Sky Bet Championship sides with Derby County, Huddersfield Town, Wolves and Ipswich Town all interested. One of these clubs also made a bid for Ward, though that was rejected now out of hand. Now though, one of Rotherham’s most hated rivals Sheffield Wednesday are now in the chase to sign the former Swindon Town forward.
While the Owls are performing well in the Championship this season, they are currently 6th in the table, they have struggled to score goals and are looking to sign players who will sort this issue out. They have already signed Callum McManaman on loan from West Bromwich Albion and they have now turned their eyes just over the border to Ward after his impressive performances for Rotherham.
It may be that rivalry that stops Ward from turning out in the famous blue and white stripes though. Rotherham have played hard ball before when Wednesday have been interested in their players, most notable when the Owls tried to sign Adam le Fondre in 2011, with Rotherham rejecting numerous offers until he eventually made the move to Reading instead.
