Holland is said to have caught the attention of Sheffield Wednesday scouts in the early stages of his loan spell with Oxford United, scoring three goals in 11 appearances for Karl Robinson’s side, including an eye-catching strike in their 3-2 FA Cup defeat to Newcastle United.

The 21-year-old made the loan move to Oxford after failing to break into David Moyes’ first-team plans despite his impressive form the for the club’s Under-23s side in the first half of the season, in which he scored an impressive 12 goals and laid on six assists in 13 Premier League 2 appearances.

Football Insider claims that West Ham could be open to allowing Holland to depart on a permanent basis in the summer, so it will be interesting to see if Sheffield Wednesday’s reported interest materialises into anything serious in the summer.
