Windass, 27, has been the Owls’ star man in recent weeks and has been linked with a host of clubs as Wednesday head into a one-off relegation shootout with Derby County on Saturday.
The Star revealed interest from the likes of West Brom and Fulham, both Premier League clubs set for relegation back into the Championship, as well as from his former manager Mark Warburton at QPR.
A handful of other second tier clubs including Cardiff and Middlesbrough are also linked with the 10-goal forward.
But his dad Dean, who spent a short time on loan at Wednesday 2001, said his future remains completely unknown and that Josh has found the reports unhelpful given the Owls’ nip-and-tuck situation.
“I actually do not know,” he told Football League World. “I know that there are a few clubs who are obviously potentially after him.
“But it’s sort of annoyed him really, because it was before Saturday’s game – probably one of the biggest games of the season – and he is getting all these clubs linked that they’re going to sign him if Sheffield Wednesday go down. He’s not that sort of lad to think about that and he was focused on the job on Saturday.
“I couldn’t tell you if he‘s going to be there next year. He doesn’t know and I don’t know.”
Windass has made 43 appearances across all competitions this season, scoring 10 goals and offering six assists.
