Carlton Palmer reckons that Josh Windass’ injury could see him remain at Sheffield Wednesday.
Following the Owls’ relegation to League One last season, it looked for all the world that the influential attacker would move away from Hillsborough this summer.
According to the Sheffield Star, Millwall saw at least one bid rejected for Windass, whilst several other Championship outfits were keen on signing the 27-year-old, who’s entered the final 12 months of his deal.
Despite speculation surrounding his future, Windass reported back for pre-season, and scored against both Celtic and Chester in Wednesday’s opening two friendlies.
However, he sustained a hamstring problem against West Brom last month, which is likely to see him miss the start of the League One campaign and seemingly prevent a move away from Hillsborough, with the timescale currently unknown.
Prior to the Owls’ Carabao Cup first-round defeat to Huddersfield on Sunday, Darren Moore told Yorkshire Live that he was waiting for scans and therefore unable to provide an update.
With that in mind, Palmer reckons he’s likely to remain a Wednesday player past the deadline.
He exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“Well, it’s a hamstring injury, so any muscular injury, there’s no time frame on it.
“So, with the season around the corner, from the noises I’m hearing it’s a severe one, so I would think that it’s unlikely that Josh will move this summer, so that would work in Sheffield Wednesday’s favour.”
