Huddersfield Town have tabled an offer to sign Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Kieran Westwood on a free transfer, Football Insider understands.
Westwood is out of contract at Wednesday later this summer and a club source has told Football Insider that the relegated Premier League outfit are hoping to lure him away from Hillsborough as they plan for life back in the Championship next season.
Huddersfield are in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements this summer with Danish keeper Jonas Lossl confirming his intention to leave the club this summer when his contract expires.
Republic of Ireland international Westwood fits the bill for Huddersfield as he boasts a wealth of Championship experience and they only want to sign a new keeper on a free transfer.
Sheffield Wednesday are keen to keep hold of Westwood and have made him a new contract offer with Owls Steve Bruce trying to convince the 34-year-old to stay at the club.
The former Sunderland keeper is now weighing up the contract offers from both clubs as he decides where he will be playing next season.
