Sheffield Wednesday remain keen on signing defender Alexander Milosevic, according to Football Insider.

The 26-year-old is a free agent now after seeing out his contract with Swedish Champions AIK.

The Owls’ new boss, Steve Bruce, is eager to bring in some defensive reinforcements in this January transfer window. The former Hull City and Aston Villa manager won’t officially take charge at Hillsborough until 1st February but is still wanting some signings before he comes in.

Milosevic, who has five caps for Sweden to his name, joined AIK in February 2018 and helped them win the Allsvenskan last year.

The 6ft 4inc centre-back started his career in his native Sweden with spells at Rissne IF and Vasalunds IF before first joining AIK in 2011. He spent three years at the ‘Friends Arena’ and played just under 100 games.

Turkish giants Besiktas swooped to sign him in January 2015 for a fee of around €1 million but he never managed to nail down a regular starting spot there. Instead, Milosevic enjoyed loan spells at German sides Hannover 96 and SV Darmstadt as well as fellow Turkish top flight outfit Çaykur Rizespor.

Milosevic was then allowed to leave Besiktas in February last year but is now set to be on the move once again. He has played a decent level throughout his career and is an international defender so could be worth a gamble by Sheffield Wednesday.

Steve Bruce will be looking to lift the Yorkshire side up the table when he takes over and needs a solid defence.
