We are tracking Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Barry Bannan, according to the Sheffield Star.
Garry Monk’s former club Middlesbrough are also interested in the Scottish international, but it is not yet known whether the Owls would consider bids for the 28-year-old.
The playmaker is one of Wednesday’s top earners, and they may consider offloading the player to stay within Financial Fair Play regulations.
However, Bannan’s salary would also likely be a concern for us as well. We have been looking to sell off stars like David Stockdale in no small part because of their wages so any pursuit of the Scotsman would need to take this into consideration.
Last season, the midfield player played 31 times in all competitions, scoring once and providing three assists. He was out injured with a hip injury for three months between December and March which did disrupt his season.
In the 2016/17 campaign, Bannan made eight assists and was one of Carlos Carvalhal’s main creative outlets as Wednesday finished fourth.
