According to a report from the Daily Mail, Sheffield Wednesday are in talks with Troy Deeney over a hybrid role at the club.

The Owls are on the hunt for new signings as the start of the 2023/24 campaign approaches, with fans eager to see some fresh faces join the remaining members of the squad that sealed promotion out of League One last time out.

New manager, Xisco Munoz, has spoken of his desire to get the right names in rather than rush the process, and he refused to rule out a move for Deeney - a free agent after being released by Birmingham City - following rumours that began to circulate last week.

When asked about the 35-year-old forward, the Owls boss said, “You know I have a good relationship with Troy, he is a good person and I love him. I have a lot of contact with him.

“But right now is the moment for what we can improve with all the situations. We are putting the focus on what the team needs and how we can stay in a good situation in the Championship. We are trying to find the players to improve the team.”

Deeney has said that his future should be revealed this week, suggesting as much in an interview at Silverstone a few days ago, and now the Mail are reporting that he’s in talks with the Owls over a player/coach role at Hillsborough for the club’s return to the Championship.
