Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Josh Windass could exit the club and join Millwall this summer, according to a fresh report which emerged on Friday.
The Lowdown: Windass shines for Owls
Though unable to keep the Owls in the Championship last season, the 27 year-old proved to be an impressive figure for Darren Moore’s side and was hailed as a ‘constant threat’ by pundit Sue Smith.
With Moore’s team now in League One, however, he could look for a way out this summer, eyeing up a return to the second tier of English football.

The Latest: Midfielder could join Millwall
According to Sky Sports [10:02am, Friday 18th June], Millwall are keen on signing Windass this summer and are ‘preparing to make a bid’ for him.
Preston North End and Birmingham City are both believed to be interested, too, as the battle to acquire his signature hots up.
The Verdict: Blow for Wednesday
In an ideal world, Windass would stay put with the Owls, helping them push for promotion back into the Championship under Moore.
Given his production last term, one would have to assume he would be a constant threat for defences in the third tier.
The harsh reality is that he will believe he belongs in the Championship, though, making it likely that he will return there in the near future.
Windass’ contract expires next summer, so Wednesday are in a tricky spot if they try keep hold of him, risking losing the former Rangers youngster on a free transfer next year.
