Sheffield Wednesday moving to tie down academy players to new deals

There does not appear to be much to shout about for fans when it comes down to things at Sheffield Wednesday recently.

Performances on the pitch have been far from what the Hillsborough crowd have expected, with results nowhere near good enough for the Owls.

That has led for Jos Luhukay to be dismissed, however, owner Dejphon Chansiri appears to be reluctant to make such a move as of the moment.


To make matters worse, the Thai businessman has revealed that he will look to sell the club in the near future.

However, there has been some good news recently, via Twitter, in regards to the club tying down some of their academy prospects to new deals.

Katrien Meire, who is the club’s chief executive, revealed that Issac Rice had signed a new deal and was also confident that the club would see more follow suit in the coming days.

The Verdict:

In a period of uncertainty, Meire’s work to tie down some of the academy players to new long-term deals will be some welcome news to those at Sheffield Wednesday.

The Owls have managed to incorporate some of their youngsters into the first-team this season, with a number of them having impressed in Luhukay’s set-up.

With the future of some of the more influential members of the Hillsborough outfit in doubt, it will be great to see some of their potential stars of the future commit to the club now.
