The Star reported yesterday that Isaac Rice and Charlie Reaney would be moving on, and it’s thought that a number of others will join them in that fate come July 1st.

On a more positive note, however, The Star has been led to believe that the talented duo of Charles Hagan and Lewis Farmer have been offered new deals to remain at the club as Wednesday look to see them continue their progression at Hillsborough.

Hagan, 19, is a talented, pacy, young winger who is also capable of playing as a striker and spent time in the youth ranks at Chelsea before making the move to Wednesday where he made his professional debut earlier this season. Farmer, meanwhile, is a technically gifted 18-year-old fullback who has impressed those in the club’s current youth setup with his energetic performances.

The duo are thought to be highly-rated and have played a number of games for the U23s over the course of the 2020/21 season, Hagan out wide or up top and Farmer at right back after being moved from the attacking midfield position that he played on his arrival at the club just before scholarship age.

It’s thought that the pair have both been offered new deals to stick around at Hillsborough for at least next season, however, they are believed to be attracting interest from elsewhere as they consider what the future might hold for the Owls and their prospects of becoming first team regulars at Hillsborough.
