Sheffield Wednesday LIVE: Latest news from Hillsborough after Owls' return to action

Last updated: Monday, 22 June, 2020, 13:31

  • The Owls were back on Saturday with a late equaliser giving them a deserved point against Nottingham Forest
  • Garry Monk is expecting to announce new deals today

It’s looking a little like a case of history repeating itself for former Owls boss Jos Luhukay who, despite halting his side’s descent towards the 2.Bundesliga relegation spots with a 1-1 draw last night, may well be heading for the exit door.

His St Pauli had been hoping to mount a title challenge, one that dissipated pretty quickly in a disastrous post-suspension return.

German football outlet Kicker reported his likely exit last night.

Happy birthday, Kieran!

Happy birthday to one of Wednesday’s longest-serving players

Wickham named in Championship team of the week

Saturday’s line-leader, who netted his first goal back in Owls colours to steal Wednesday a late point, nestles into the Championship team of the week, put together by the stats bods at WhoScored.

Nice one, Connor.. plenty more to come.

New deals incoming

Sheffield Wednesday to announce deals for THREE players as squad takes shape

The immediate futures of three Sheffield Wednesday loanees could well be wrapped up later today, according to Owls boss Garry Monk.

After a decent return to action on Saturday against Nottingham Forest, the Owls now have the longest break they’ll get in this hetic shcedule as they don’t play again until Sunday.

Between now and then they’ll be checking on Steven Fletcher whose injury soured an encouraging draw with Forest, with the striker only lasting a couple of minutes from the bench before having to come off again.
