Exclusive: Palmer lauds Barry Bannan for Sheffield Wednesday consistency

Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has heaped praise on Barry Bannan for his level of consistency since arriving at Hillsborough – something that probably can’t be said of all of his teammates given the club lie 23rd in the Championship table.

Bannan joined the Yorkshire club from Crystal Palace back in 2015 and has since gone on to become a regular feature under various managers.

The 31-year-old midfielder has made over 250 appearances for the Owls, sometimes playing out wide, showing his worth to the likes of Carlos Carvalhal, Garry Monk and now Darren Moore.

Will Moore keep Sheffield Wednesday up?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Ultimately, he is a player that has certainly impressed Palmer in recent years, with the ex-Wednesday star quick to praise him in an exclusive interview with FFC.

“I think somebody that has regularly performed for them has been Barry Bannan,” Palmer said. “I think he’s someone who’s always done well for Sheffield Wednesday since he’s come to the football club.”

Considering all of the above, Bannan is a player who Moore surely would not want to lose. However, with the Wednesday captain’s contract up at the end of the season and relegation a possibility, a Hillsborough exit may be on the cards.

If the Scotsman does end up departing, he could be joined by the likes of Jordan Rhodes and Keiren Westwood, who are also set to be free agents in the summer.
