Dean Windass has told Football FanCast that son Josh Windass is delighted to have ended speculation over his future by signing a new deal with Sheffield Wednesday.
Windass has penned a fresh contract, which will keep him with the Owls until the summer of 2023.
The 23-year-old had been heavily linked with a move away from Hillsborough after suffering relegation to League One on the final day of last season.
Championship trio Queens Park Rangers, Millwall and Birmingham City were keen to strike a deal that would have seen the attacking midfielder make an immediate return to the second tier of English football.
But the former Rangers attacking midfielder, who joined Wednesday on a permanent basis following a loan move from Wigan Athletic last year, will be looking to guide the Owls to promotion instead after agreeing terms on a new deal.
Windass, who has missed the start of the new campaign through injury, is keen to repay the faith shown in him by Wednesday when he returns from the sidelines.
His father Dean exclusively told Football FanCast: “He is delighted to sign a new contract.
“The football club have made it clear they didn’t want to sell him so it’s over the line now.”
