PremierLeague-News.Com - The Owls, fighting for their Championship lives, have a raft of first-team players coming to the end of their contracts heading into the final weeks of the 2020/21 season
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Former Sheffield Wednesday manager Garry Monk has questioned the club's long-term strategy. There are 13 senior players, including Tom Lees, Adam Reach and Keiren Westwood, reaching the end of their Owls contracts. It is the third year on the bounce where Wednesday have not tied down a big proportion of their squad to new deals. The Owls, who are fighting to avoid a third dip into League One since relegation from the Premier League in 2000, have persuaded skipper Barry Bannan to commit his long-term future to the club.

"Players prefer security and then they know what they are working towards and what that club is on board with and, of course, as you get to the later stage of the season there are lots of players out of contract and commitment is what you are asking for. It creates difficulties in that sense and from a business point of view. "There are young players on there, potential assets, and trying to create a business plan or model, you leave yourself wide open to a lot of things in terms of losing out on certain assets that's for sure." Ex-Wednesday striker Clinton Morrison is also baffled by the club's lack of urgency in renewing player contracts.
"I don't know how there are 13 players like that and there are a lot of good youngsters and players on that list how their contracts have been run down," he said. "No way.
