Sheff Wed: Brentford and Swansea eye up Barry Bannan move

Sheff Wed: Brentford and Swansea eye up Barry Bannan move - League One News

Brentford and Swansea City are reportedly interested in signing Sheffield Wednesday star Barry Bannan this summer, acting as a blow to the Owls.

The Lowdown: Bannan stars for Sheff Wed

Wednesday may be facing up to life in League One next season, but one player who cannot be blamed for their struggles is Bannan.

The midfielder has been an exceptional performer for the Owls over a sustained period, making 258 appearances for the club along the way.

Given Bannan’s quality, it could be difficult to keep hold of him this summer, especially as he is allowed to leave if a £1million offer arrives.

Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?





The Latest: Two clubs linked with move

According to Sky Sports [via The 72], Brentford and Swansea have emerged as the front-runners to sign the 31-year-old in the summer transfer window.

Banna’s current Owls contract expires at the end of the 2022/23 season.

The Verdict: Potential big blow for Owls

Bannan has arguably been Wednesday’s best player over the past five years or so, producing quality on the ball – he registered five Championship assists last season – but also an admirable work ethic.

With Darren Moore’s side now in the third tier of English football, however, it could be difficult to keep hold of someone with 27 Scotland caps to his name.

Brentford could be an especially appealing proposition for Bannan, following their promotion to the Premier League, and it would be hard to begrudge him leaving if the Bees follow up their interest with a concrete offer.
