Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Joey Pelupessy has revealed (per the Star) his aim to win a new contract at the club, but not many fans share that desire.
The 26-year-old arrived in South Yorkshire in January 2018 but he has never really made his mark on the first team, at least in terms of starting games or performing to a standard that takes the club to the next level. He has seen his role in the squad increase in recent weeks due to the exclusion of Sam Hutchinson, but the Owls are without a win in each of the Dutchman’s last four appearances.
It is little surprise, therefore, that fans don’t rate Pelupessy very highly. By the time his contract ends in the summer, he will have spent two-and-a-half years at Hillsborough yet he has never managed an average WhoScored rating above 6.7, and that shows how much he has underperformed.
As a result, he may have a lot to do in the remaining 13 league games if he is to convince Garry Monk that he deserves to be kept on next season, as his seven league starts this campaign indicates that the Owls’ boss isn’t convinced by him either.
Should Garry Monk be sacked?
Here is some of the reaction to Pelupessy stating his desire to stay at the club beyond the summer.
We don’t want him tbh

Good attitude but no WAY the quality for this league. League 1 player at best

If he gets another contract I’m finished with SWFC. He’s a joke of a midfielder. Nothing personal 🤷♂️

I’d rather have Abdi back least he was committed to ripping us off, where as Joey is absolutely clueless about how inept he is #swfc
