Sheffield Wednesday may face a battle to keep Charles Hagan as rivals begin to circle
Sheffield Wednesday have offered young Charles Hagan a new contract at Hillsborough, but he’s yet to put pen to paper.
It was reported earlier this month that the Owls had tabled an offer to keep the teenager at Hillsborough beyond the end of this season, with Darren Moore looking to trim down the average age of the squad and the potential of a step up into the first team on the horizon.
The Star has previously reported that Hagan was weighing up his options, and it appears that there has still not been a line drawn underneath the situation as the 2021/22 draws closer.
It’s thought that Wednesday are still in talks with the 19-year-old attacker as they look to keep him at S6, however The Star understands that there is plenty of interest from elsewhere as the likes of Charlton Athletic, Stoke City and Brentford among those believed to be monitoring the former Chelsea starlet as he gets closer to the expiration of his current Owls deal at the end of next month.
Hagan is highly-rated at Middlewood Road and finished the 2020/21 season strongly after overcoming injury issues earlier in the campaign, and – if he stays – will no doubt get the opportunity to impress Moore in what is going to be an interesting preseason.
The youngster is thought to be more than open to the idea of sticking around, however at this point discussions are ongoing as the bides his time on making a decision on his future.
