McGugan wants to quit the Owls and reignite his career after a frustrating year. His last outing for Wednesday came on the final day of the 2015/16 season.

The former Nottingham Forest and Watford player was left out of the squad who travelled to Portugal for the club’s pre-season training camp last summer and made available for transfer by head coach Carlos Carvalhal.

“Lewis is a very good player and can play in a lot of teams in the Championship but he has difficulties playing our game,” said Carvalhal at the time. “These kind of things happen in football.”

McGugan, a £300,000 buy from the Hornets nearly two years ago, has 12 months left to run on his Owls contract.
