Huddersfield Town and Ipswich Town have offered contracts to Jordan Rhodes as they race to sign him on a free transfer from Sheffield Wednesday, Football Insider can exclusively reveal.
The 31-year-old has less than two months remaining on his contract at Hillsborough and is set to become a free agent this summer.
A recruitment source has told Football Insider that both clubs have tabled three-year deals to the prolific striker in a bid to secure his services.
Rhodes scored seven goals in 36 Championship appearances in the 2020-21 campaign for a Wednesday side that suffered relegation on the final day of the season following a 3-3 draw with Derby County.
The centre-forward has struggled in front of goal since arriving in a £10million deal from Middlesbrough in July 2017.
He has scored just 20 goals in 112 appearances for the Owls and was sent out on loan to Norwich for the 2018-19 campaign.
The best spell of his career came at Huddersfield Town where he contributed 86 goals and 14 assists in 147 appearances between 2009 and 2012.
Terriers boss Carlos Corberan will be hoping Rhodes can rediscover such prolific form in front of goal if he is to return to The John Smith’s Stadium.
While Ipswich manager Paul Cook is keen to add more goals to his squad this summer, with only relegated Northampton Town and Bristol Rovers scoring less than his side in the 2020-21 campaign.
A former Scotland international, Rhodes scored three goals in 14 appearances for his country.
