Sheffield Wednesday finished the season down in rock bottom of the table, and will be looking for a much improved 2021/22 campaign when they look to escape League One.

Meanwhile, Owls defender Osaze Urhoghide has opened up on struggling for game time under former manager Tony Pulis, and revealed: “I was frozen out of the team when Tony Pulis came in.

“He had a team he would already pick and I wasn’t really playing during that period. I was on the bench a couple of times, sometimes the extra man and it was a sad moment to be honest.

“Football is about playing and when you’re not playing you do all you can to get into the team and you don’t get what you deserve sometimes.”

He continued: “I felt I was just coming into train, as if I was never going to get into the team, it was like ‘What’s the point?’ I was working hard, trying to do my extras, trying to keep my fitness up. It was difficult.

“My hard work wasn’t paying off. It was only after he left the club that hard work did start coming off and I was ready when the opportunity came.”

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Sheffield Wednesday and the rest of the Championship, as the reaction to last season and the build-up to summer transfer window continues:
