Ex-Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has told The Transfer Tavern in an exclusive interview that wholesale changes are needed at his former club.
Palmer cannot see it happening due to the kind of contracts Wednesday’s players are currently on, but in the retired England international’s ideal world, most of the squad would be heading out of the exit door this summer.
They have undoubtedly not performed at a good enough level this season, with the Owls currently in the relegation zone and battling to stay in the Championship, though there has been some improvement of late – particularly the 5-0 win against Cardiff City.
Have you been impressed with Darren Moore?
It could turn out to be too little, too late, however, and Palmer is now eager to see a player overhaul take place at Hillsborough. Speaking exclusively to TT, he said:
“Apart from Barry Bannan and Osaze Urhoghide, there’s not too many. Liam [Shaw], I’d keep, you know, there’s a few I’d keep, but there would be wholesale changes, trust me. But he [Darren Moore] can’t do that in the league now.
“If these guys are on the money that they’re on and they’re on three or four–year contracts or whatever, you can’t make wholesale changes. You can’t.”
While Palmer would like to see the likes of Bannan and Urhoghide remain at the club, both players are set to become free agents in the summer. Meanwhile, Shaw has a pre-contract agreement with Celtic.
