According to The Sun on Sunday (14/04/19, Page 61), recently relegated Premier League side Huddersfield Town are eyeing up a move for Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Keiren Westwood, who could be available on a free transfer.

The Sun on Sunday has reported that Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Keiren Westwood is attracting interest from Premier League side Huddersfield Town, who had their relegation to the Premier League confirmed last month.

Westwood could be available on a free transfer with his contract running out at the end of the season, and Huddersfield are looking to make a move to bring in the experienced shot-stopper in a bargain deal.

Owls boss Steve Bruce is hoping that Westwood will sign a new deal with the club and he will try to convince him to put pen to paper on a new contract – despite the fact the club is looking to cut costs where possible.

The Republic of Ireland international joined Sheffield Wednesday back in the summer of 2014 from Sunderland and has been a mainstay in the starting 11 for the majority of his time with the club. However, under former boss Jos Luhukay, he was ousted from the first-team picture.

Since the departure of Luhukay and the arrival of Steve Bruce, however, Westwood has been reinstated at the club’s first choice goalkeeper. His return to the first-team has been crucial in Wednesday’s upturn in form. So far this season he has kept an impressive 11 clean sheets in 19 Championship games, conceding just 13 goals. Overall, Westwood has made 163 appearances for The Owls (Transfermarkt).
