‘Hutch’ had been playing for Pafos FC in Cyprus since leaving the Owls earlier this year, but rumours surfaced earlier this week that a shock return to Hillsborough could be on the cards for the tough-tackling midfield man.

Wednesday boss, Tony Pulis, wouldn’t be drawn into discussing his transfer targets with the media when asked about a link with the 31-year-old, but the rumour mill will keep on turning after the latest news of his exit from his Cypriot side.

The club confirmed the news on social media this morning, saying, “Pafos FC announce the contract termination with defensive midfielder Sam Hutchinson by mutual agreement.

“Hutchinson, 31, joined Pafos in September. The midfielder has had vast experience in the Premier League and Championship with Chelsea FC, Nottingham Forest FC and Sheffield Wednesday FC. He completed 5 league matches and two Cyprus Cup fixtures for Pafos.
