Sheffield Wednesday defender Julian Borner is edging closer to sealing a summer exit from Hillsborough, according to a fresh update.
The Lowdown: Borner expected to leave
The Owls were relegated to League One back in May, having agonisingly failed to stay in the Championship on the final day of the season.
A number of established names will have moved on by the time the 2021/22 campaign gets underway, with Borner looking like being one of those, following constant rumours surrounding his future.
The centre-back is widely expected to enjoy a new challenge this summer and an update has now arrived, courtesy of Yorkshire Live‘s Dom Howson.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
The Latest: Fresh update emerges
The report claims that Borner is expected to join Hannover 96 in the coming days, bringing an end to his time with Wednesday.
A ‘six-figure sum’ is mooted, with the 30-year-old German leaving the club with a total of 70 appearances and four goals to his name.
The Verdict: Inevitable summer move
While losing Borner is a blow for Darren Moore, it was fairly clear that the defender wasn’t going to be content with playing in the third tier of English football.
The hope is that the six-figure fee that the Owls receive for his services can be used on bringing in new signings that are tailor-made to thrive in Moore’s style of play.
In other news, two clubs are thought to be eyeing up a move for one Sheff Wed player. Find out who it is here.
