The Owls pair are both out of contract in the summer, and despite the club’s strong desire to retain their services, appear resigned to their exits in the coming months.

Scottish star Fletcher has been a popular figure during his four-year stint with Wednesday, and had already bagged 13 goals this term.

TEAMtalk understands Wednesday would like to extend his stay, but rival interest is emerging and The Owls are struggling to come up with terms to satisfy the veteran’s demands.

The situation is also not helped by the fact the club were under financial investigation from the Football league after being charged late last year with breaching EFL rules.

Now, the likes of West Brom, Derby and Stoke are ready to make a move for the 33-year-old.

However, Fletcher is unlikely to be the only big name departure, with Welsh ace Morgan Fox set to follow him through the exit doors amid similar difficulties in convincing the full-back to extend his stay.

26-year-old Fox, like Fletcher, has a host of clubs chasing his signature, and the left wing-back has clubs from the Premier League, Championship and Scotland circling.

 

Burnley, Norwich, Bournemouth, West Brom, Middlesbrough and Rangers are revealed to be interested in a possible summer swoop.

Meanwhile, another Championship hotshot could be on the move, after TEAMtalk exclusively revealed the identity of the chasing pack looking to agree terms with impending free agent Lyle Taylor.

Taylor joined Charlton in 2018 from Wimbledon and he has continued his success at The Valley, with double figures in both campaigns; indeed he has successfully achieved that feat in each of his last five campaigns.

The Montserrat international is now weighing up his options, with interest emerging from the Premier League, Championship and Scotland.
