Carlton Palmer reckons that Josh Windass has an agreement with Darren Moore about his future – but will stay at Sheffield Wednesday providing they fight for promotion this season.
The Owls have made an excellent start on their return to League One, collecting four points from their first two matches as they bid to make an instant return to the Championship.
Will Sheffield Wednesday earn promotion?
However, Windass is yet to feature in Wednesday’s three competitive matches this season, with a hamstring problem set to keep him out for a lengthy amount of time.
But whilst Windass’ injury is a major blow for the Owls in the pitch, his period on the sidelines appeared to play some part in the attacker committing his future to the Hillsborough outfit following his recent contract extension.
Palmer, though, believes that the former Rangers man will remain with the club past next season should they compete at the top end of the League One standings this term.
When asked whether he’s delighted about Windass’ recent extension, former Owls midfielder Palmer exclusively told The Transfer Tavern:
“Josh is too good for this league. You know he’s going to score goals in this league, but reading between the lines, he’s got an agreement with Darren Moore.
“The injury has stopped him leaving, it probably came at a good time, because no club wants to sign a player knowing he’s going to be out for a long time.
“But if Sheffield Wednesday are in contention for promotion, then he’ll stay, if not, then he’ll leave.”
