Aston Villa wanted to sign Sheffield Wednesday's Jordan Rhodes during the summer transfer window.

Sheffield Wednesday striker Jordan Rhodes may have helped to turn his season around, after scoring against the team who tried to sign him last summer, Aston Villa, last weekend.

Rhodes went 24 matches without scoring a Championship goal for Wednesday, but he now has hit the back of the net twice in the Owls’ last two matches.

And Rhodes’ display against Villa last weekend showed exactly why Steve Bruce wanted to bring the Scottish international to Villa Park in the summer.

The Birmingham Mail reported how the claret and blues tried to sign Rhodes, and they may be regretting not pushing harder for a deal now.

Rhodes scored with a fine finish, as Wednesday caused an upset at Villa last weekend.

And Rhodes will not be looking to build on his fine scoring form over the coming weeks, as he aims to make up for lost time.

The 27-year-old has never suffered a drought like his recent one over the course of his career, as he has always been a prolific scorer, and Wednesday fans will be hoping that Rhodes’ goals against his once potential employers will get him back to his best.
