Sheffield Wednesday manager Paul Sturrock is preparing a bid to lure Nick Barmby from Hull.
The Owls are keen to boost their attacking options, with Sturrock turning to Barmby after seeing a number of his players struck down by injury.
The former Tottenham forward has been unable to hold down a regular starting place at his hometown club since suffering a hamstring injury last season.
Speculation around Barmby, who is also a former England international, heightened further after the player was relegated to the reserves this week by Tigers boss Phil Parkinson.
And the offer of first team football could persuade Barmby that his future lies south at Hillsborough.
