Sheffield Wednesday are chasing Wigan Athletic striker Connor Sammon.

The Mirror says Sammon is wanted on loan by Dave Jones' promotion-seeking Sheffield Wednesday.

Sammon has lost his place in Roberto Martinez's side but had been a regular for much of the season.

Now the Owls are keen to recruit the former ­Kilmarnock hot-shot, 25, for the rest of the League One campaign as they look to clinch a top-two finish.
