Some Sheffield Wednesday fans on Twitter have been reacting to Tony Pulis’ announcement that the club have just offered Barry Bannan, Adam Reach and Tom Lees new contracts.
The Owls have a number of first-team players out of contract this summer, but it seems as though they’re stepping up their efforts to keep some of their key players at the club.
Reach, Bannan and Lees have been three of the Owls’ most important players this season, racking up 45 appearances between them, and it seems as though they could be set to extend their stays at Hillsborough.
However, the trio are yet to sign on the dotted line, and with the Owls’ Championship status very much up in the air at the moment, they may want to consider their futures going forward.
Of course, fans are happy to hear that the club plan to keep their three key players, but when you look at it from the footballer’s point of view, they may want to assess their options before committing their future to a club that could very easily find themselves playing in League One next season.
In an ideal world, Lees, Bannan and Reach will sign new deals and help Wednesday stay up, but the reality is that they need to seriously think about their futures before committing to staying in Yorkshire.
I think this is a very positive thing. Reach & Bannan 2 of the best players at the club. Tom Lees is also a positive. If they are willing to stay with the position we are in then they deserve some credit. https://t.co/eaDjfAd2Yq

Regardless of what you think of the players here, glad to see the club is sorting things early, rather than leave it till the last minute https://t.co/3R6CY0PNB2

Clever move, given they are good players. And finding players like them in the transfer market would be tough.
