Birmingham City youngster Keke Simmonds has re-emerged as a potential transfer target to Sheffield Wednesday, The Star understands.

Simmonds joined Blues from Manchester City’s youth team at the back end of the January 2021 transfer window under then manager Aitor Karanka.

He was initially signed as a developmental squad player though would train with the first team.

Simmonds got his first team debut in the final game of that season under Lee Bowyer when he came on as a substitute in the defeat to Blackburn Rovers.

In 2021/22 he failed to make a single Championship appearance though did play the final 20 minutes of the 2-0 EFL Cup defeat to Fulham.

The 21-year-old hasn’t travelled with the first-team squad for their pre-season tour of Portugal and despite having a year left on his contract at St Andrew’s, The Star claim that Wednesday are relatively confident they can get the forward - should they wish - on a free transfer.

Simmonds is no stranger to the Owls having been on their radar along with closest rivals Sheffield United prior to his signing with Birmingham, back in 2020.
