Sheffield Wednesday-focused Twitter account @TheStarOwls recently posted a tweet which shared a link to an article that was recently published by The Sheffield Star which discusses some comments that were recently made by Charlton Athletic striker Lyle Taylor after he appeared on ‘The Conv3rsation’ podcast. 

This article from The Sheffield Star explains that the Owls have been linked with the striker who is set to become a free agent this summer, having previously rejected a contract offer from the Addicks which has since been rescinded. 

Furthermore, this report goes on to share some comments that the 30-year-old forward recently made when speaking with ‘The Conv3rsation’ podcast, where he explained his dissatisfaction with the contract he had been offered by Charlton and goes on to say that the club has become a “circus”. 

Some Owls fans have been reacting to @TheStarOwls’ tweet sharing this news and they have been sharing some mixed opinions with regard to whether or not they’d like to see Taylor at Hillsborough, while some shared that they don’t think Taylor would want to join Wednesday. Read the replies of some Wednesday supporters to this post in the tweets below.

To kick off this quiz on the Championship's top goalscorers, can you name the league's top goalscorer from its inaugural 2004/05 campaign?

Would you like to see Lyle Taylor at Hillsborough next season?





What do we think?

Taylor has scored 11 goals in 22 Championship appearances this season. This means that the forward has scored a quarter of the Addicks’ 44 league goals this term and he has also scored more goals than any Owls player except for Steven Fletcher who has made four more league appearances this term than the Charlton forward. 

This goalscoring record is somewhat impressive and Taylor may have something to offer the Owls in attack next season, should they target the forward if he becomes available on a free transfer this summer.
