Sheffield Wednesday lead Middlesbrough and Derby County in the race for Stoke City forward
Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly leading Derby County and Middlesbrough in the race for Lee Gregory from Stoke City.
Lee Gregory played the second-half of last season on loan at Derby County, scoring three goals and providing one assist in 11 matches.
The 32-year-old who signed for Stoke City in 2019 has only played 50 times for the Potters.
He is now in contention to leave the club, and he already has a series of admirers. Middlesbrough and Sheffield Wednesday are interested in him, but Derby County are also keen to re-sign him.
Gregory's contract with Stoke City will expire at the end of this month, and he is unlikely to be offered a new deal. Reports have confirmed that Sheffield Wednesday are leading the race to sign the forward in the transfer window.

Sheffield Wednesday were relegated from the Championship in the just-concluded season, and Gregory may want to rethink before deciding to join the League One side. The chances of Boro signing him are not over just yet.
