Sheffield news Westwood, Bannan and the retained list - Behind the scenes at Wednesday PremierLeague-News.Com
PremierLeague-News.Com - Here is the full transcript as our Owls club writer Dom Howson answered your questions around the South Yorkshire club going into a hugely important summer at Hillsborough
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! When will the retained list be released? I'm expecting the retained list to be finalised next week. Moore has spoken to all the players this week. I don't think a lot of them will be retained. There's a lot of players on the list who are on good money and will probably have offers to stay in the Championship. I would keep Keiren Westwood and Tom Lees. Lees was awesome once the armband was taken off him. Great servant to the club. Both have been top servants to the club but I think it's time to move on. Sam Hutchinson is a leader and can play multiple positions. His adaptability will be very handy next season. Any updates on transfers? Is there room for a potential Wednesday reunion for Jack Hunt? The club are working on a deal for Southampton youngster David Agbontohoma. Talks remain ongoing with him. He would be one for the future and be initially part of the Under-23s set-up. As for Hunt, I don't think he's a player Wednesday are after at the moment. Any inside knowledge if Dejphon Chansiri has listened to yourself, other journos, ex-players/managers and the fans in changing his ways and bringing in other top-end staff? I'm afraid not. I'm sure he will be well aware of what has been said by journalists, ex-players and fans in changing his ways. Will he bring someone at senior management level? In my experience, you can never second guess Chansiri. Will Barry Bannan and Josh Windass stay? If offers come in for Barry Bannan, Josh Windass or anybody else this summer, it would be foolish in Wednesday's financial position not to consider cashing in. Part of the reason the club have got themselves in this situation is because they haven't sold players and then reinvested that money back into the team. They stockpiled players and knocked back a number of bids.

. As I wrote the other day, I would personally like to see him bring in a chief executive. I think that would help take a big weight off his shoulders. Do you think we will be an attractive prospect for the young/most talented players from League One and around? And will we have the funds to pay for them? Wednesday are a big club in League One and will be an attractive proposition for a lot of players. I expect Wednesday to target a number of players in the lower leagues. Moore wants to lower the average of the squad and inject some more pace and athleticism into the side. I'm sure the chairman will do what he can to provide Moore with the fans to rebuild the squad.

Do you expect Darren Moore to continue with three/five at the back or do you think he was just working with what the players were comfortable with? His preferred formation is 4-2-3-1 so I personally think he will alter their shape next season. I don't see them lining up three at the back too often. I think Moore only played three at the back because of the personnel at his disposal. Assuming Adam Reach and Kadeem Harris move on, Wednesday will need to recruit two to three wingers to play his system. Who do you think will be the strongest teams in League One next year? I would imagine Charlton, Portsmouth and Ipswich will be up there next season. Rotherham and Wycombe will give it a right good go and I suspect the team that miss out in the play-offs will also be there or thereabouts.

Odds on Keiren Westwood staying? I would be surprised if Westwood stayed. I get the impression that Moore wants to go in another direction and sign a new goalkeeper this summer to challenge Joe Wildsmith and Cameron Dawson for the No 1 jersey. What are your expectations or our League one campaign? I personally think we need a massive rebuild of three to four seasons before I can safely say we can survive in Championship without becoming a yo-yo club like Rotherham. What do you think our priorities should be? We would all love Wednesday to challenge for promotion next year but League One is a tough division to get out of and there is a huge rebuilding job to be done at Hillsborough. There is no quick fix. The reality is it could take a few seasons to get out of the league. But if Wednesday recruit well and bring a feelgood factor back to S6 then they will give themselves a fighting chance of doing well.
