Callum O'Dowda has continued to drag his feet over a new contract at Bristol City as he seeks a move away from the club. This has damaged his relationship with his current team, and he was even forced to train away from the first team for much of pre-season.
While he would ultimately be brought back into the selection fold, starting the Championship opener against Leeds United, he could still leave the club.
Football journalist Pete O'Rourke is reporting that Sheffield Wednesday are interested in signing the player, with Bristol open to moving him on.

With less than 12 months remaining on his contract, the Championship side may settle for a lesser fee now rather than see him move on a free next summer.
The 24-year old joined from Oxford United in 2016, since going on to win 15 caps for the Republic of Ireland. He had established himself as a starter under Martin O'Neill, but a mix of injuries and lack of playing time at club level has since seen him fall out of the first XI.
Sheffield Wednesday will be hoping for major improvements this season after finishing 12 during the 18/19 campaign. The club have yet to appoint a successor to Steve Bruce, with Lee Bullen currently in charge on a caretaker basis.
