According to The Sun, Sheffield Wednesday are pursuing a double loan swoop on Middlesbrough for midfielder Adam Forshaw and winger Adam Reach.

The Owls lost to Hull City in the Championship play-off final last month, and manager Carlos Carvalhal will be looking for new signings this summer to make sure that his side are making another push for promotion next season.

With midfielder Alex Lopez and winger Aiden McGeady returning to parent clubs Celta Vigo and Everton respectively after loan spells at Hillsborough, Carvalhal may choose to bring in two new faces rather than bring Lopez and McGeady back to the club.

Now, The Sun report that Wednesday are keen on a double loan swoop on Middlesbrough, with midfielder Adam Forshaw and winger Adam Reach wanted.

Forshaw, 24, started just nine games for Boro last season as they won promotion to the Premier League, and with Aitor Karanka keen to strengthen his squad, Forshaw could be moved on.

The former Everton man has shown flashes of quality during his time with Brentford, Wigan and now Boro, and he could thrive at Wednesday if given the chance to play first-team football.

The report adds that whilst a deal for Forshaw could be possible, a move for winger Reach would be much more difficult to complete.

The 23-year-old has come up through the ranks with Boro, and starred during a loan spell with Preston North End last season, hitting four goals and three assists under Simon Grayson.

Reach's performances at Deepdale appear to have triggered interest in his signature, but whilst Wednesday would allegedly be keen on a loan deal, Boro intend to give Reach a chance in the Premier League next season - meaning Carvalhal may have to wait and see whether the left winger makes an impression before he can secure a loan move.
