Barry Bannan thinks Sheffield Wednesday have a Premier League player in Josh Windass
Sheffield Wednesday captain, Barry Bannan, says that he thinks Josh Windass is good enough to play in the Premier League one day.
The Owls skipper, who hails from Scotland, says that he has family members that weren’t completely sold on the attacker during his days at Rangers, but insists that Wednesday have got a real talent on their hands.
Windass is hot property at present with plenty of Championship clubs on his tail following the Owls’ relegation, however, as reported by The Star, Wednesday have rejected an offer from Millwall and have taken the stance currently that he’s not for sale at any price as things stand.
It remains to be seen whether Wednesday will maintain that standpoint as the transfer window goes on, but there’s no doubt that he could play a huge role for Darren Moore in League One if he does end up sticking around.
Speaking to the Open Goal podcast, when asked about Windass the Owls skipper said, “He’s very good, he’s better than I thought he was as well… He’s got everything - powerful, strong, good finisher, good technique, so I was surprised.
“I’ve got a few of my cousins who are Rangers fans, and they weren’t massive fans of him. But I’ve said that he’s top, and I think he could easily play in the Prem down there… I think he could, he’s rapid.”
According to YorkshireLive, Millwall’s opening bid was around the £400k mark, and only time will tell if they come back to test their resolve further with an improved bid.
