BetVictor slashed the odds on Sheffield Wednesday to sign the star striker Jordan Rhodes who currently plays for Middlesbrough with the odds 2/1.
The Scottish player’s future was and remains the subject of intense speculation over the past month, and he is seemingly being deemed to requirements at Riverside after he made only one Premier League start so during the season.
Rhodes joined the Teesside outfit during this February, for approximately £9 million.
BetVictor also thinks that the Owls might sign Rhodes, which will make them the favourites ahead of Aston Villa who are at 4/1 as well as Hull City at 5/1.
Sheffield currently sits inside the play-off spots, and they are ahead of Birmingham City (7th place) only because of the superior goal difference.
However, the 23 goals they scored, are the lowest total tally from any of the top 9 sides in their division, so a contract for the striker would certainly make sense for South Yorkshire.
Since the next transfer window is in January, which is just around the corner, Rhodes’ situation should be closely watched, since so many teams are interested in securing his skills.
The striker was a menace in the game that he played with Anfield with his hold-up play, physicality, as well as aerial prowess. However, his goal performance did not transpire.
Where one door closes another one opens, and since Rhodes missed the opportunity to make a good impression at Anfield, and warming the bench, he will be doing his best to correct that mistake at Ewood.
