Former Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Carlton Palmer has told The Transfer Tavern that he cannot see Burnley needing to recall goalkeeper Peacock-Farrell.
The 24-year-old is currently on loan at Wednesday from Burnley and has made an impressive start to life in his new surroundings, winning the club’s Player of the Month award for August.
However, Owls boss Darren Moore recently confirmed that Burnley do have an option to recall Peacock-Farrell should they need to.

Such a development could easily disrupt Wednesday’s challenge for promotion, but Palmer cannot imagine too many scenarios that would require Burnley to bring Peacock-Farrell back to Turf Moor.
“It’s standard to have a recall clause,” the ex-Wednesday player said in an exclusive interview with TT. “I mean, they’d have to have injuries, Burnley, to three senior ‘keepers for them to have to recall him. So it’s very unlikely that would happen.”
As for Peacock-Farrell’s long-term future, returning to Burnley and becoming their No.1 looks like it is going to be a difficult task.
Nick Pope is currently Sean Dyche’s first choice for that position between the sticks and is arguably one of the leading ‘keepers in the Premier League. Last season, he kept 11 clean sheets, a record bettered by only four other shot-stoppers in the division.
