Wednesdayites have got a rough idea of what the squad is going to look like for the new campaign, but who does Steve Bruce want to be wearing an Owls shirt next season and who will be allowed to leave the club? Here’s what we know so far...

Bruce has said a new deal is on the table for Westwood so he's clearly part of the Owls chief's plans for next season. Whether he signs it is another matter.
It's already been confirmed by the club that Boyd will leave at the end of his contract, which expires in June.

Palmer is out of contract but wasn't on the list of released players. Bruce has spoken highly of him, and the defender has put in some solid performances this year to earn himself a place next season.
Has only recently signed on a permanent deal but has impressed both the fans and his manager in that time. Definitely one for the future as Wednesday rebuild.
Another player that Wednesday confirmed would not be getting a new deal this summer.
Hasn't seen much first team football this season, but Bruce says he 'thinks highly' of the young goalkeeper. Should still have a role to play as the club moves forward.
Van Aken hasn't seen much first team football this season so it's hard to know what Steve Bruce might think about the defender, although he is well down the pecking order at Hillsborough.
Steve Bruce admitted that he hasn't seen Penney in action, but he was on the bench against QPR which is a positive sign that he could be involved in Wednesday's promotion push next season.
One of the players on Wednesday's released list who will be playing football elsewhere next season.
He might be able to fetch a fee in the transfer market but the talented forward is surely part of Steve Bruce's plans going forward if he's looking to mount a promotion push.
Steve Bruce confirmed he wants to keep the midfielder after he made a much-awaited return at Hillsborough on the final day of the season.
He's an able deputy for Keiren Westwood and has been in the team this season, but Dawson might benefit from a loan spell if Westwood is to remain as number one next year.
He's the club captain, is one of the core players and is always reliable in defence - he's got to be part of Bruce's plans going forward.
Another one that Steve Bruce might not have seen much of - it's hard to know where he falls in the pecking order as the Owls chief has said he wants to use younger, quicker players.
One of the six released players who will leave the club at the end of his contract.
He's one of Wednesday's key players in midfield so should still be part of Steve Bruce's plans next season, even though he has struggled with injury.
Fox might remain as a back-up option in defence but when both Liam Palmer and Dominic Iorfa are fit, he's forced out of the starting team. Steve Bruce could turn his attention elsewhere this summer.
He's due to return to Chelsea but the fans, Steve Bruce and the man himself all want to see Hector in blue and white next season... it all depends on whether a deal can be reached.
One of Wednesday's best players so should be part of Bruce's plans going forward. Could be the subject of some interest in the summer, but undoubtedly would be key to a promotion push next season.
Already confirmed that he will leave Hillsborough at the end of his contract this summer.
He bagged a goal and an assist against Preston and Steve Bruce said Nuhiu had a 'big part to play' in his future plans...
The last of the six released players who won't be at the club next year.
He's stepped up in recent weeks, but there's no knowing whether Pelupessy is the man Steve Bruce wants as a midfield option.
Steve Bruce has spoken highly of the young defender but his role in the team could depend on whether a new centre back arrives in the summer.
The Owls have a LOT of strikers and Winnall's limited game time suggests Steve Bruce might not fancy him as an option going for next season.
Has undoubtedly contributed an important number of goals this season, but has been linked with a big money move away from Hillsborough. Will Steve Bruce cash in?
One of Wednesday's core players and should remain so going into next season. Could be subject to some interest in the transfer market, but Steve Bruce will surely want to keep the Scot.
Wednesday's top scorer, with time left on his contract too. Should be key as Steve Bruce builds a team for next season.
Rhodes is due to return from his loan spell at Norwich and it's uncertain whether he will move on to another club or be given another shot at Hillsborough under Steve Bruce.
Aarons impressed early on in his loan spell before being sidelined with injury. Whether or not he impressed enough to earn a permanent move is up for debate - he's due to return to Newcastle regardless.
Onomah hasn't had as much impact as he - or Wednesdayites might have hoped - but Steve Bruce is a fan of the midfielder. He's due to return to Tottenham at the end of his loan spell.
Lazaar had an impressive few games for Wednesday but was sidelined for too much of his loan spell with injury. That's not something Steve Bruce will want going forward.
