Sheffield Wednesday's Matt Penney makes his way onto QPR radar as his contract draws to an end
His Sheffield Wednesday future is very much up in the air, and it appears that there’s at least one Championship rival keeping a close eye on Matt Penney’s situation.
The Owls academy graduate has played 12 Championship games this season for the Owls after returning from a season-long loan spell in Germany with St. Pauli, with the club exercising a one-year option on his contract back in June.
Now though, with the 2020/21 season drawing to a close, the 23-year-old is one of the long list of first team players that do not have a contract in place for the next campaign, and it remains to be seen whether he will remain at Hillsborough or not.
It’s thought that contract talks have largely been put on hold by Wednesday for the time being as they focus on trying to retain their Championship status, and there is a large possibility that decisions will only be made once they know what division they’ll be in.
No clubs in England can make moves to try and sign any out-of-contract players until later next month, however The Star understands Queens Park Rangers are keeping tabs on his situation as they plan for next season.
Clubs around the world will be keeping their options open as they assess the market for what they need ahead of the next campaign, and Penney’s contractual situation may make him an interesting prospect for a number of clubs out there.
It remains to be seen whether anything more will come from QPR in the coming months, but Wednesday still have a say in the matter as things stand currently.
