Sheffield Wednesday: Fans react to Keiren Westwood's statement on his relationship with Garry Monk - Twitter Talk

Keiren Westwood has been a stalwart between the posts at Hillsborough over the last few years but it appears that his time at Sheffield Wednesday is coming to an end.

He still has more than a year left to run on his contract but he has been removed from the first team squad by Garry Monk this season, a decision he says he accepts and respects. Indeed, Monk has placed him in the under-23 team alongside Sam Hutchinson, another long-term servant of the club, and that led to speculation from fans about the reasons behind the decision, with the goalkeeper keen to address such rumours.

In a statement released on Twitter, the 35-year-old shared his desire to put an end to the abuse he has received online, and posted a long message stating his joy at being able to play for the Owls as well as clarifying his relationship with the current boss.

Many supporters have responded very positively, with a number of well-wishers and people taking his side against Monk, who has grown unpopular after a run of one win in ten league games.

Some wish that Westwood would return to the side in place of Cameron Dawson, but others realise this statement likely means the end of the Irishman’s time in South Yorkshire and have expressed their sadness at that fact, with one fan describing the saga as ‘criminal’. Here are some of the reactions to Westwood’s statement:
