The Championship season ended last night and Sheffield Wednesday lost their final game 2-1 to Middlesbrough. There hasn’t been a lot for the Hillsborough faithful to cheer about in 2020 as they only picked up four victories since 22 December.
They finished in 16th, which is four positions lower than last year. Plus, with the season ending, it also means that on-loan players are returning to their parent clubs, and many fans would like to see the Owls attempt to sign Jacob Murphy permanently for next term.
The winger, who was signed on loan from Premier League side Newcastle, played 33 times in the Championship for the Owls, scoring nine goals and picking up four assists, per Transfermarkt.
This ranks him as the second highest scorer at the club in 2019/20, per WhoScored, whilst he had the joint-third most assists and it emphasises why a lot of supporters would like to see him return next season.
He will for sure be a player that they either need to bring back or try to replace as he provided a lot of attacking threat for Wednesday.
Here is what these Owls fans said following the post:
The Owls' quartet of loan players have returned to their parent clubs following the end of the 2019/20 season.
We want to thank all four players for their services this campaign and wish them well for the future. #swfc

Murphy has had a very good season, despite the team being poor. Would be glad to see him back again.

Should do everything in our power to@get @JacobMurphy95 back to Hillsborough next season

Would love Murphy back. Hopefully the last we have seen of Da Cruz, good athlete, terrible footballer.

Fantastic Murphy 👏🏻 completely changed from his first few games. Looked brilliant by the end of his loan. We’ll try sign Da Cruz no doubt

Would love Murphy and Windass back. Da Cruz and Wickham can stay away for me cheaper options will be available

Bring back Murphy
