Sheffield Wednesday supporters are very pleased with the retained list, but want all of them replaced.

Wednesday announced that Joost van Aken, Kadeem Harris, Elias Kachunga, Tom Lees, Matt Penney, Moses Odubajo, Joey Pelupessy, Adam Reach, Jordan Rhodes and Keiren Westwood were all leaving the club, while Liam Shaw was on his way to Celtic in Scotland.

The confirmation – along with new deals for Sam Hutchinson, Alex Hunt and Ciaran Brennan – means that Wednesday have only 15 senior players for next season as things stand, but it turns out that the bulk of Owls supporters are more than happy with the situation.

While 18% felt it was a bit of a mixed bag in terms of who was released, a whopping 80.6% of the 911 people that voted in a poll run on our Twitter account felt that Darren Moore and his technical team got things absolutely spot on with the retained list this year – with only 1.4% believing that they got it drastically wrong.

But – as may be expected – the exits do mean that new faces are required at Hillsborough, and fans are desperate for it to be a busy summer transfer window from the boss and his recruitment team.

According to over 600 people that voted in another poll, 67.2% of them think that Wednesday need between five and ten new signings for the season ahead, while 24.2% of them think pretty much a whole new squad of 10+ are required - only 8.6% want one to five coming in.

That work is already underway, now fans are waiting to see what Moore’s rebuild project looks like.
