Sheffield Wednesday in discussions with ex-Rangers survival hero over new contract



The 30-year-old attacker had a fantastic season finale, tallying three significant goals in their final three games, including the season’s first goal for the team in a crucial win against Blackburn Rovers. They were up until the very end thanks to a six-match winning streak that began with an injured return at the beginning of April.

Windass has played for S6 for four and a half seasons. In recent months, he has been the focus of rumors about his future, with MLS team Real Salt Lake reportedly putting in a bid to sign him permanently during the January transfer window. Southampton and other EFL teams have also expressed interest in the player. The former Rangers player is still in negotiations, according to sources who spoke with The Star.

In the upcoming weeks, his present contract with Wednesday and the contracts of several other senior players at Wednesday will expire. It is widely known that Owls manager Danny Röhl is a major fan of Windass’ skill set and that the team is eager to have him back for the upcoming campaign as they attempt to move up the Championship standings. Among the players set to sign a new contract is captain Barry Bannan.

Röhl told The Star last week, “The fact is that at this point his contract is over after the season.” After his protracted injury, his performance continued to improve. Josh and I will talk as well. On Sunday, we’ll see where we end up before taking the next action.

It is anticipated that Wednesday will be speaking with their players who are not under contract in the near future in order to go forward with their summer preparations. Owls manager Röhl has insisted that it’s critical to get the most out of their summer vacation by getting moving early and getting ready for the preseason.

Wembley hero Windass, who had a successful loan from Wigan Athletic, signed a permanent contract with the Owls in September 2020. In his 135 games, he has 40 goals and 17 assists.
