Derby's Chris Maguire wanted by Sheffield Wednesday

Chris Maguire

Sheffield Wednesday are still eager to sign out-of-favour Derby County striker Chris Maguire despite having had two bids rejected, BBC Radio Derby reports.

It is believed the clubs are getting closer to agreeing a fee for the 23-year-old, who joined Derby for around £400,000 from Aberdeen in June 2011.

The Scot made eight appearances for the Rams - just two of which were starts - at the beginning of the season.

But he did not feature after November and joined Portsmouth on loan in March.
