The wait goes on for Sheffield Wednesday when it comes to protecting the futures of a variety of first string players.

The Owls, without a supervisor after the departure of Tony Pulis last month, offered agreements to senior guys Adam Reach, Barry Bannan and Tom Lees in early December however these are yet to be signed as secret over the next man into the Hillsborough spot goes on.

All 3 have been said to be keen to extend their deals and there is no glaring indicator that there is any issue over whether that has changed.

However as they have participated in the last six months of their offers, clubs from abroad are now permitted to approach these gamers on free transfer terms.

Lees has potentially been Wednesday’s top performer this season and captain Bannan stays a talisman. Reach has actually struck a purple spot in his type and alongside the hurt Dominic Iorfa would in the long term be among the club’s most saleable assets.

The wide guy scored a nicely-taken objective in the FA Cup win at Exeter City on Saturday and stand-in coach Andy Holdsworth applauded the quality of the 27-year-old.

” Adam is Adam,” he said. “He scores question objectives, he never ever ratings tap-ins. And the good idea is that his motion to produce his shots and his movement to get into the final third is elusive, he produces objectives from it and shots from it. And wonder objectives from it!

” He’ll never amaze us. Right before he got the objective he shot from the halfway line That’s because he desires to score objectives and that’s what great gamers do, they wish to score objectives. And that’s Adam Reach.”

Speaking last month, Owls owner Dejphon Chansiri said he was confident of securing new deals for crucial players.

” We have actually started speaking about extending contracts a while ago anyhow, it’s not about the new supervisor – due to the fact that we always state they need to fit our philosophy. So it’s not about that.”

” Not yet,” he explained. “You understand agents attempt to make it tough all the time. It’s hard.”
