Following a loan spell with Portsmouth under Michael Appleton, the forward moved to a newly promoted Sheffield Wednesday where he went on to score 18 league goals in 79 appearances.

A brief spell with Rotherham United during the 2015/16 season saw Maguire loaned out to Oxford United where he would work under Michael Appleton for the second time in his career.
