Championship side Sheffield Wednesday moved for ex-Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov, according to a report by The Sun.

According to the report, Wednesday tried to sign Berbatov in the summer transfer window in their search for a striker.  However wages proved to be a stumbling block.

Sheffield Wednesday spent over £6 million this summer on new players for the club as they push for promotion under new owner Dejphon Chansiri but were not successful in signing Berbatov.

The news came yesterday that Berbatov offered his services to former club Manchester United this summer but they rejected the opportunity to re-sign him.  The striker scored 56 goals in 149 appearances whilst playing in Manchester between 2008 and 2012.

Berbatov then signed for Fulham where he played 54 times and scored 20 goals before moving to France to play for AS Monaco.

After rejecting Sheffield Wednesday and being rejected by Manchester United, Berbatov moved to PAOK and signed a one-year deal.
