Newly promoted Sheffield Wednesday could be about to sign Burnley winger, Keith Treacy on a permanent deal.
The 23 year old Republic of Ireland international joined the Owls on loan in March after struggling to establish himself in the Clarets first team.
Treacy, although not a regular choice did help the Owls achieve promotion back to the Championship. Wednesday finished in the League 1 runners-up spot and Treacy could now be ready to remain at Hillsborough and face the Clarets next season.
The former Blackburn and Preston winger made in total seven appearances for Dave Jones side although that included only two starts. His loan was extended though until the end of the season and he scored one goal and made one assist against Brentford in their penultimate game of the season. He then went on to help the Owls beat Wycombe 2-0 at home last Saturday in their final game of the season and ensure their automatic promotion back to the Championship. Just before that final game,Treacy expressed an interest in joining Wednesday full-time.
Treacy appears to love playing his football in the Steel City with his first spell being on loan to Sheffield United from Blackburn Rovers for four months at the start of the 2009/10 season.
"When I was with United, I loved the city and playing here. The fans are so passionate," said Treacy.
"I love playing football in Sheffield. The Wednesday fans have really taken to me."
Treacy has been a huge disappointment at Turf Moor after arriving with high hopes last Summer for a fee of £500,000. Clarets fans would probably not be too disheartened if he now left the club.
