Some Sheffield Wednesday fans want Garry Monk to reunite with one of his former Swansea City players at Hillsborough.

Tom Carroll, the midfielder Monk brought to Swansea on loan from Tottenham Hotspur in 2014, had his Jacks deal terminated on Friday – six months before it was due to expire.

As the midfielder’s release arrived ahead of the transfer deadline, he is free to sign for another club outside of the window.

And another player in Carroll’s position may not go amiss for Wednesday, who were without Massimo Luongo, Kieran Lee and Sam Hutchinson against Millwall on Saturday.

This is what those of an Owls persuasion are saying about Carroll’s exit on Twitter…

Carroll began his career at Tottenham Hotspur, for whom he played 56 times before moving to Swansea on a permanent basis in 2017.

The 27-year-old made a further 84 outings for the Welsh side, interrupted by a loan spell at Aston Villa last season.

But he struggled to nail down a regular place upon his return to the Liberty Stadium last summer. describes Carroll as a ‘very strong’ passer, but lists discipline, aerial duels and tackling as his weaknesses.
