Former Nottingham Forest midfielder John Bostock is being lined up by Sheffield Wednesday boss Darren Moore, according to The Star.
The former Reds maestro signed for Doncaster Rovers in January and made 18 appearances for the club.
Shortly after he agreed to sign for Moore, the manager left to join the Owls. He was unable to prevent the club dropping into League One.
Now, he’s eyeing a reunion with Bostock. The 29-year-old has a year remaining on his deal at the Keepmoat Stadium.
The former Reds man did well for the League One outfit. He earned praise from supporters for his passing radar and intelligent play.
Wednesday will hope to make an instant return to the Championship. Last season they were relegated after beginning the season with a six-point deduction.
Moore will certainly need some players. The Owls have released 10 from last season’s squad and a large recruitment drive is required.
Bostock is a target. He would surely jump at the chance to join a club where he previously spent time on loan in 2012.
The midfielder will be keen to get his career back on track and playing for a club the size of Wednesday could be just what he needs.
What happened to Bostock at Forest?
Quite simply he was vastly underused by boss Sabri Lamouchi. He made just nine appearances for the Reds, with just one start coming in the Championship.
When he was called upon though he looked decent. He was calm, composed and looked comfortable in possession of the ball.
Sadly, he had Ben Watson to compete with. The veteran was outstanding during 2019/20 and Bostock just couldn’t force his way in.
Some still thought he might be worth signing and on occasions last season, the Reds could have perhaps done with him.
A move to Wednesday would be a good one for Bostock, and the Forest fan base would monitor it with intrigue.
