Sheffield Wednesday are planning a summer bid for Kilmarnock defender Stuart Findlay, according to the Daily Mail (15 March, page 94).

The 23-year-old centre-back has been instrumental for Steve Clarke’s side this season and produced another Man of the Match performance in the recent 1-0 win at St Mirren, making two crucial blocks as he once again showcased his superb positional sense and insatiable will to win.

 

This form appears to have caught the eye of Sheffield Wednesday, with manager Steve Bruce interested in bringing Findlay to Hillsborough.

The Mail believes that the Owls are willing to pay £1 million for the Scotland U21 international but it remains to be seen if that is enough to convince Killie to part with one of their most important players at the end of the season.

Findlay is something of a late bloomer at the age of 23. He spent a combined five years at Celtic and Newcastle United but failed to make a single first-team appearance in league football for either of the two clubs.

He joined Kilmarnock from Newcastle in July and they can now expect to make a big profit.
