Former Hearts star Callum Paterson could be on the move from Cardiff City to fellow English Championship side Sheffield Wednesday.

The Sheffield Star reports the two clubs are in talks over a permanent switch for the 25-year-old Scottish international.

Paterson appeared 37 times for Cardiff last season and has experience of leading the line for the Welsh club in the English Premier League.

However, he has sat out their first two games this term and Wednesday are interested in bringing him in to bolster their attacking options.

Paterson is a massively versatile player, capable of playing in defence, midfield and attack, a trait that goes back to his time at Tynecastle.

Though he largely played right-back at Hearts, he was quickly moved further forward at Cardiff, with then-boss Neil Warnock jokingly accusing Tynecastle Craig Levein of selling him a “dud defender”.

He’s made 106 appearances for Cardiff since signing in the summer of 2017.
