Sheffield Wednesday are targeting a move for Kilmarnock defender Stuart Findlay.

Steve Bruce is looking to bolster his defence ahead of next season by landing the 24-year-old, as per a report by the Sheffield Star.

The Owls are expected to be busy this summer as Bruce looks to put his own stamp on them and compete at the top end of the Championship in the next campaign.

Findlay impressed in the Scottish Premiership for Killie this season under Steve Clarke. He played 33 games in all competitions, chipping in with four goals from defence.

The Scot has also represented his country at U16, U17, U19 and U21 level so far in his career and is being tipped for a cap for the senior side in the near future.

He started his career at Celtic and rose up through the youth ranks of the Glasgow giants. Findlay never made a senior appearance for the Hoops but enjoyed first-team experience out on loan at Greenock Morton, Dumbarton and Kilmarnock.

Findlay was released by Celtic in 2016 and joined Newcastle United on a free transfer. He played once for the Toon before moving back to Kilmarnock on loan in the 2017/18 season, where he played 36 times.

Killie then made his move there permanent last summer and he has turned out to be a useful signing for them. A move back down the border to Sheffield could now be on the cards for Findlay though with the Owls lurking.
