Sheffield Wednesday rumours: Owls miss out on 16-goal striker, Stoke City eye ex-Man Utd starlet
Sheffield Wednesday remain hard at work behind the scenes, as they look to find suitable recruits to bolster the squad ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
The Owls are gearing up for their first League One season in a decade, and it remains to be seen whether midfielder Barry Bannan will be still be at the club when the league gets underway in August.
Discussing his future, the 31-year-old said: “It’s been tough… Last year was a hard year for us, we had a points deduction and stuff – so we were on the backfoot straight away. We ended up getting relegated, which is never great at any part of your career, especially when you’re a bit older as well.
“I’ve got two years left, I signed a new deal halfway through last season, so we’ll just see what happens. We start back on Friday, so I’m just looking forward to getting back in. I’m keeping myself fit, and then I’ll go back and see what happens.
“It’s a bit up in the air at the minute, there’s a lot of people leaving behind the scenes and stuff. It’s not a great place to be at the minute, but once I get back in on Friday and have talks, we’ll find out what I’m going to be doing next season.”
