Among the players to leave the Owls was defender Tom Lees, who ended a seven-season spell at Hillsborough upon the expiry of his contract.

In a farewell message to Wednesday fans, the 30-year-old said: “I could not leave the club without taking the time to thank you all for everything you have done for me over the last seven plus years.

“The welcome I received immediately and the support over the years really means so much to me and I won’t forget it. The pre kick-off part of ‘Hi Ho Silver Lining’ when the music cuts out and the fans take over will never leave me.

“I’m proud to have worn the shirt 274 times during my time here, and have been fortunate enough to captain the side for a lot of that period. That is something which no one can take away from me and I’ll always be able to look back on in the future and say I did that for a club like Sheffield Wednesday.

“I’ve shared a dressing room with some great players and great people over the years - many of whom I’ll stay friends with for the rest of my life. I leave with so many great memories and moments shared with them.”
