Sheffield Wednesday fans are furious on Twitter, after a local report claimed they will have to fight to keep hold of their best players this summer.
According to a report from The Star, Fernando Forestieri and Barry Bannan are “attracting the interest from a host of Championship clubs”, and fans are praying they can keep hold of their star duo.
Championship newcomers Stoke City are reportedly huge admirers of Forestieri, and Tony Pulis’ Middlesbrough want to sign Bannan.
The Owls pair both suffered through injury problems last season, with Bannan missing time with a hip problem and Forestieri requiring surgery on his knee.

The report also touches on the fact that Wednesday are certain to trim their squad this summer as they look to cut down their wage bill, but fans are desperate to keep hold of their star pair.
After a disappointing campaign, losing a talent like Forestieri to a team like Stoke, who will no doubt be competing at the top end of the table, would be a devastating blow.
Fans are furious with the exit links, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
The chairman can do one if we sell our best players,we are not paying top price for everything to watch a mediocre mid table side

Ridiculous if we are even considering this

There are many more players earning good money who we will look to move on before entertaining getting rid of these….. it would take some bid for us to part with either! #fakenews

Chansiri has always said he wouldn’t sell our best players? So why would we now now? Is happy to be a bottom half championship side, cos that’s what we will be if we lose those 2
