Norwich City fan favourite Jordan Rhodes can leave Sheffield Wednesday, according to reports in Yorkshire.

The 29-year-old was a hit during a season long loan spell at Carrow Road last season in a back up role to the prolific Teemu Pukki.

The Sheffield Star understand Rhodes does not figure in the plans of Wednesday chief Steve Bruce, who will listen to offers for the Scottish international.

Rhodes has one year left on his existing Hillsborough contract - according to transfermarkt.co.uk - but there have been no firm moves from Norwich City to bring the striker back to the Canaries. City sporting director Stuart Webber made it clear earlier this summer the Owls' valuation of the experienced striker and the total financial package made a return unlikely.

City have since agreed a deal to bring in Swiss international Josip Drmic, who will move to the Canaries officially on July 1, while Republic of Ireland Under-21 international Adam Idah is expected to be part of Daniel Farke's senior set-up during pre-season.

Rhodes, however, remains keen on sealing a Carrow Road move and has been pictured spending part of his summer in Norfolk. The ex-Ipswich Town trainee joined the likes of Alex Tettey and Wes Hoolahan at a fitness session last week and was spotted with his family at the Royal Norfolk Show in recent days.
