Blackburn deal for Danny Graham could free up Jordan Rhodes for Sheffield Wednesday transfer

Blackburn's move for Danny Graham could have repercussions for Sheffield Wednesday.

SkySports are reporting that Blackburn Rovers are attempting to beat competition from a host of rival clubs to sign Danny Graham on loan.

Rovers are hoping to land the Sunderland forward, who has been unable to make an impact for the Black Cats in the Premier League this season.

SkySports report adds that: "It could have implications on the future of Jordan Rhodes at Ewood Park."

It goes on to state that Sheffield Wednesday have expressed their interest in the 25-year-old Scot, who has been one of the most consistent strikers in the Championship for several seasons now.

Graham would not be a permanent solution to selling Rhodes, but he would help make up the numbers, and still leave them with cash to spend on the rest of the team.

Blackburn are in 18th position in the table, while Wednesday are in sixth place, with a genuine shot of finally winning promotion back to the Premier League.

Rhodes scored last night in Blackburn's FA Cup clash away to Newport County.
