Sheffield Wednesday signing Jordan Rhodes: Middlesbrough didn't give me chance

Sheffield Wednesday signing Jordan Rhodes has taken aim at former club Middlesbrough.

The striker completed a deadline day move to the Championship side on loan with the deal becoming permanent in the summer.

He told the club's official website: “It's been six months of not really being able to do that and that's something I really love doing and hopefully I can add competition for places because there's a really good bunch of players in there and I'm looking forward to getting started and getting to know everyone.

“You've just got to put it in everyday in training and keep yourself right for when that chance might happen.

“That chance didn't happen quite (as much) as I wanted there but now the chance is in Sheffield Wednesday colours and I would like to think I've kept myself in a pretty decent physical condition so hopefully the gap won't be too big to breach."
