It looks as though the tough-tackling former Chelsea man will get the chance to hit the 200-game mark for the Owls next season after he had a one-year option in his contract triggered by virtue of the amount of matches that he played this season.

The 31-year-old left Wednesday at the start of last season after Garry Monk decided that he wasn’t in their plans going forward, but he was contacted by Tony Pulis during his short tenure and eventually brought back while Neil Thompson was in charge after he cut short his spell in Cyprus with Pafos FC.

Upon his arrival back at Hillsborough, ‘Hutch’ explained that he had an extension in the deal that he’d signed that would automatically kick in should he play a certain amount of games, and The Star understands that he’s very open to the idea of sticking around for that extra year even after the season ended in the disappointment of relegation.

The re-signing of Hutchinson was criticised by some because of his injury and discipline record, however in his time back he’s missed just the one match and picked up only four yellow cards in the 22 matches that he has played – scoring his only goal of the campaign in the final day drama at Pride Park as they drew 3-3 with Derby County.

Wednesday boss, Darren Moore, is currently in the process of meeting with his senior players – those out of contract and those who have deals going forward – to discuss the way forward.
