Leicester, Leeds target Hirst forced out of Sheffield Wednesday

George Hirst is ready to leave Sheffield Wednesday.

The Daily Mail says the 18-year-old striker is set to leave when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Owls boss Carlos Carvalhal said, "He's not a player who is involved with us.

"I am the manager but I'm not a person to do contracts and talk about these things."

Wednesday rejected a bid from Leicester in August worth £2million and Leeds had a formal approach turned down.

Both clubs remain keen as so do many others.
