GEORGE O'Callaghan is being lined up for a shock switch to Sheffield Wednesday.

Brighton are also chasing the Ipswich Town midfielder and also want out-of favour Matt Richards.

Blues boss Jim Magilton is willing to allow both players to leave, although will want a fee for the Irishman who was signed from Cork City for around £100,000 last January.

Bottom of the Championship side Wednesday are favourites to land O'Callaghan with the move expected to be completed before Friday's transfer window closure.

O'Callaghan was left out of Town's 1-0 win over Palace with a rib injury cited as the reason and has made it clear how much he wants to play for the Blues.

But the Owls are keen to reunite him with striker Francis Jeffers and may have no choice but to leave if Magilton accepts the bid.

O'Callaghan has been frustrated at the lack of first team opportunities and despite some impressive performances has not been given a run in the side.

Town are hoping to bring in Spanish defender Cesar Navas and are currently discussing personal terms with the former Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund player after Malaga indicated they would be willing to accept a £200,000 offer from the Blues.
