Sheffield Wednesday forward Callum Paterson is reportedly discussing the idea of a new deal at Hillsborough.
The Lowdown: Paterson impresses for Owls
The 26-year-old has done well since joining the Owls, scoring nine goals in 50 appearances and providing admirable levels of work-rate off the ball.
Paterson has 17 caps to his name for Scotland, highlighting his pedigree, and he should be a key man for Wednesday in League One this season.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
The Latest: New deal incoming?
According to The Sheffield Star, the attacker is in talks with the club over a new contract.
The Owls are believed to have ‘rebuffed enquiries from Championship clubs’ during the summer transfer window and Paterson is happy with his life in Sheffield.
The Verdict: Shrewd move by Wednesday
Nailing Paterson down to a new deal would undoubtedly represent positive news for Wednesday, given the experience he has and how effective he can be on his day. Former Hearts teammate Jack Hamilton once claimed he has ‘got everything’ as a footballer.
Granted, he might not be a guaranteed starter every week, considering how many signings Moore has made recently, but he is an ideal squad player who can shine out wide or centrally.
Retaining the services of players like Paterson is of the utmost importance for Wednesday, as they look for a swift return to the Championship.
