Sheffield Wednesday are believed to be the front-runners for the signature of highly-rated Scottish striker Stevie May.

According to The Courier, Rotherham United were in the driving seat but they were unwilling to meet St Johnstone’s valuation of the 21-year-old, which is reported to be £800,000. However, Owls manager Stuart Gray has now made his interest known and the South Yorkshire club are willing to meet the club’s price tag for May.
