Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland are both interested in signing Millwall striker Lee Gregory in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.

The 29 year-old is out of contract at Millwall in the summer and could leave them on a free transfer. This has left fellow Championship sides Sheffield Wednesday and Sunderland on red alert. He has also had scouts from Derby County, Cardiff City and Sheffield United watching him this season as well.

Sheffield Wednesday have struggled for goals this season and are slipping towards the bottom three under Jos Luhukay. They should have what it takes to survive and a summer move for Lee Gregory would certainly give them more of an attacking threat in the next campaign.

Sunderland, on the other hand, are fighting for their lives and it is uncertain whether they will be in the Championship or in League One next season. Staying up would help them in the race for Gregory.

Millwall fans will be hoping they can see off the interest in him and offer him a new deal. He joined them in 2014 from non-league side FC Halifax Town and has adapted well to life in the Football League.

He has scored 8 goals so far this campaign for Millwall and has formed a decent strike partnership with Steve Morison under the guidance of Neil Harris. It would be a real blow to the Lions if they lost him for nothing in the summer. However, he would be a very shrewd signing by either Sheffield Wednesday or Sunderland.
