Huddersfield Town's next opponents could be calling on a Premier League striker to help fire them to victory.

Kyle Lafferty, linked with a move to Leeds United last week, is reportedly set to snub a move to Elland Road and sign for Sheffield Wednesday.

And he could make his debut against Town, with David Wagner's men hosting the Owls in the first fixture following the international break.

The Northern Ireland forward is desperate for game time ahead of Euro 2016 - and has played just 13 minutes of Premier League football for Norwich City.

He looked to be heading to Elland Road but Steve Evans has seen his hopes of landing Lafferty dashed by the Owls, who are now in pole position according to the Mirror.

Birmingham City are also said to be interested in a deal for the former Rangers man, but Wednesday are going for promotion and the prospect of a £1.5m permanent move in the summer, should they achieve Premier League status, is tempting Lafferty to Hillsborough.

And the Owls are hopeful of concluding a deal before the loan window shuts on Thursday.

Lafferty's contract with the Canaries expires in June 2017 but he has been told he is surplus to requirements at the Premier League outfit.
