Sheffield Wednesday have the option to extend Josh Windass’ contract by an extra 12 months, according to reliable journalist Dom Howson.
The Lowdown: Windass continues to shine
The 28-year-old has been an impressive performer for the Owls since joining from Wigan in 2020, scoring 21 goals in 80 appearances in total.
His current Hillsborough deal expires at the end of this season, but a crucial behind-the-scenes update has emerged in that respect.
The Latest: Owls could extend deal
“Josh Windass insists his sole focus is on firing #SWFC to promotion rather than his own future.
“His present deal runs out next summer, although it is understood the Owls have the option to extend his contract by a further 12 months.”
The Verdict: No-brainer for Wednesday
It makes complete sense for Wednesday to prolong Windass’ stay at Hillsborough for another year, assuming that all parties are pulling in the right direction
At 28, he is right in and around the peak years of his career, and the hope is that Moore’s team will be playing Championship football next season following a potential promotion.
Windass has done more than enough to earn a contract extension, chipping in with consistent quality in the final third – he has 12 assists for the club on top of his 21 goals – so retaining his services could only be a good thing for Sheffield Wednesday.
