Former Sheffield Wednesday defender Jon Newsome has told Football FanCast that attacking midfielder Josh Windass could leave the club this summer.
Windass, who’s played in the Championship in each of the previous three years, has been a rare bright spot in an otherwise wretched season for the Owls, which culminated in relegation following their draw at Derby on Saturday.
He managed nine goals and six assists in 41 league appearances but couldn’t save Wednesday from slipping into the third tier.
Despite their relegation, Windass could make an immediate return to the Championship, with the former Rangers man linked with both West Brom and Fulham, whilst a host of other second tier teams have already joined the race to sign the talented midfielder.
Windass’ deal at Hillsborough runs out next summer, but relegation could force Wednesday to cash-in on the 27-year-old, who Newsome believes might be reluctant to playing League One football.
He told Football FanCast:
“It’s a difficult one really. He’s not had a prolific season, he’s scored nine league goals, 10 in total, but he’s played in a side that are struggling.
“His performances of late have been good and he’s scored a number of goals in the last few games that have put his name out there.
“The players have got to ask themselves, do you want to play in League One? It’s a big thing.”
