A change for a Premier League player could void a possible Sheffield exit on Wednesday UK News

But it emerged over the weekend that Championship Nottingham Forest had taken an interest in Liam Palmer, Wednesday’s oldest player.

The full-back has amassed more than 300 appearances for the Owls – his lifelong club – and celebrated the 11th anniversary of his first-team debut this week.

And in their search for a right-back, Forest had identified Palmer as a possible solution had they been able to strike a deal with Wednesday, which has the 29-year-old under contract until the summer of next year.

Sheffield Wednesday defender Liam Palmer is the club’s longest-serving player.

Forest, however, is reportedly close to making a deal to bring Arsenal youngster Jordi Osei-Totu to City Ground on a season-long loan, a move that would surely put an end to their interest in Scotland international Palmer. .

Osei-Tutu had a successful season on loan at German squad Bochum in the 2019/20 season, only injuries hampering further progress in the league with Cardiff City last time around.

Palmer has played a key role in Wednesday’s two competitive games so far, with the Owls keeping the sheets clean against Championship Huddersfield Town and other League One promotion hopefuls Charlton Athletic.

He has been switched to left-back, a position he has held several times before, since the arrival on a free transfer from Jack Hunt after a three-year absence at Bristol City.

Darren Moore has been keen to stress on several occasions that his focus is on bringing players into the club, not getting out of it.
