Sheffield Wednesday are in the process of sorting out their squads for next year, and it’s thought that several will be on the move as their current deals expire.

Wednesday have many senior players out of contract come July, while there are also players at U23 level who are in the same situation. With the U18s, meanwhile, decisions need to be made on who will be given a professional contract or not.

The Star reported earlier this week that several players within the U23s and U18s would discover their fates for their Owls futures, and two of the players who are expected to be moving on are defender, Isaac Rice, and midfielder, Charlie Reaney

The worrying stat Sheffield Wednesday need to change to stay up

Rice, who is 20-years-old, made his senior Wednesday debut early this year as a late substitute in the win over Exeter City, while his only other senior matchday squad appearance was when he made the bench for a game against Leeds United under Jos Luhukay.

With Reaney, the 19-year-old has enjoyed some success within the youth setups at Hillsborough and has played plenty of games for the U23s, however it appears the time has now come for him to look for a new challenge elsewhere.

The duo have been with Wednesday since 2014 and 2018 respectively, and are unlikely to be the only two from the current crop of U23s that move on the pastures new for the 2020/21 campaign.

Player contracts are due to expire at the end of June, and it remains to be seen at this stage who will be retained by the club's youth setup.
