Wanderers have reportedly enquired about George Byers with the Sheffield Wednesday midfielder set to become a free agent this summer.

Byers spent the second half of the season on loan at Blackpool, making 16 appearances as the Seasiders narrowly missed out on a play-off spot. Neil Critchley’s side ended up in eighth place, three points behind Barnsley, following a frustrating defeat at Reading on the final day.

The 27-year-old helped Wednesday secure promotion to the Championship during the 2022/23 campaign, scoring six goals in 29 matches including an instinctive finish in a 2-0 victory at the Toughsheet Community Stadium.

He played 20 times in the second tier during the first half of this season, getting on the scoresheet in a 2-1 defeat at Birmingham.

Bolton and Oxford have both “made enquiries” about Byers ahead of the play-off final later this month, according to Sheffield Star.

Meanwhile, Birmingham, Huddersfield and Rotherham are said to be keeping tabs on the situation following their relegations to League One.

The report also claims that Barnsley are on his list of admirers along with Blackpool, having made a positive impression at Bloomfield Road over the past few months.

Byers came through the Academy ranks at Watford and made his senior debut in 2015. He also represented Scotland at various youth levels.

The midfielder left Vicarage Road in the summer of 2016 to join Swansea, where he spent the next five years and made around 50 appearances.

Byers had a spell on loan at Portsmouth during the second half of the 2020/21 campaign, playing 16 times in all competitions.

He headed to Hillsborough the following summer and has made more than 60 appearances for the Yorkshire club over the past three seasons.
