Scotland midfielder Barry Bannan could be about to make a move to the English Premier League, with Brentford eyeing up the Sheffield Wednesday player (DR).

Sheffield Wednesday were relegated from the English Championship to League One last season amid a backdrop of financial issues. Bannan is an experienced player but is available for £1 million due to a release clause in his contract.

This has alerted Championship clubs but recently-promoted Brentford are though to be the most keen. Bannan was last in the Premier League six years ago with Crystal Palace but he’s heading into talks for an exit from Sheffield Wednesday.

He only signed an extension with Wednesday last month but Brentford may take him back to the top flight of English football. Bannan has made 27 appearances for Scotland and could use this move as a vehicle to get back into Steve Clarke’s plans.
