‘What happens now…’ - Darren Moore’s statement about ‘every single’ Sheffield Wednesday player

Darren Moore says that a curtain has now been pulled down on the 2020/21 season, admitting that he’ll now be having conversations with every single player at the club.

The Owls have lots of players out of contract, a couple of loans expiring and plenty of decisions to make as they begin plans to try and make a go of first time promotion back out of League One next season, and it’s been confirmed that Moore will be the one to lead it.

Wednesday’s 3-3 draw against Derby County over the weekend sealed their relegation from the Championship after what has been a torrid campaign for the club, but Moore said that he was at least pleased that his players had left everything out on the field in what was a dramatic final day in the second tier.

Now, with the season at an end, the Owls boss said that this group of players won’t be back in at Middlewood Road together again, explaining that there will be discussions taking place about the way forward – even with those who are still in contract for 2021/22.

He told The Star, “What happens now is we pull the curtain down on this season. The players move into their summer break, but obviously there are conversations to be had - for every single one of them there are conversations to be had.

“Whether they’re in contract or out of contract, for every single one of them there’s a conversation to be had.”

The Wednesday boss also asked for a bit of patience, finishing off his final 2020/21 press conference by saying, “Please let us have the conversations that need to be had first before we move forward.”

Wednesday are set to release their retained list this month once those conversations have taken place, and there is set to be a big turnover of players in the coming weeks as Moore looks to build a team capable of restoring the Owls’ place in the Championship as soon as possible.

The likes of Adam Reach, Jordan Rhodes, Tom Lees and Keiren Westwood are just some of the players who are out of contract come the end of next month.
