Report: Sheffield Wednesday keen on Hibernian's Jason Cummings following enquiry from Leeds

Hibernian striker Jason Cummings is a target for a host of Championship clubs.

According to the Daily Mail, Sheffield Wednesday are keen on signing Hibernian striker Jason Cummings, who has been the subject of an enquiry from Leeds United.

Cummings, 20, grew up as a Hearts fan before joining the Jambos as a youngster, but was released in 2012 - and joined their fierce Edinburgh rivals Hibernian in 2013 after a year with non-league side Hutchison Vale.

After smashing 21 goals in 42 games last season, the impressive striker has followed that up with 15 goals in 23 this term, giving Alan Stubbs' men a chance of winning the Scottish Championship title.

Now though, Cummings' exploits in front of goal are triggering interest in his signature, with Burnley allegedly lining up a £500,000 bid in January - but they aren't the only team credited with an interest by the Daily Mail.

It's stated that Sheffield Wednesday are also weighing up a bid for Cummings next month, whilst Yorkshire rivals Leeds United have also enquired about signing the Scotland Under-21 international.

Both teams are likely to be in the market for strikers in January, and whilst Cummings has impressed, it's something of a surprise to see them looking at the Scottish market again.

Sheffield Wednesday splashed out big to sign striker Stevie May from St. Johnstone in 2014, but he last just one year at Hillsborough before being sold to Preston, whilst Leeds snapped up Lee Erwin from Motherwell during the summer, and he has yet to make an impact at Elland Road.

Still, Cummings is making a real name for himself in Scotland, and at just 20, he has plenty of potential - and it seems that Leeds and Wednesday could battle for his signature in January.
