Report: Owls offer new contract to Charles Hagan who is receiving interest elsewhere

According to Ghana Soccer Net, Sheffield Wednesday have offered a new contract to young striker Charles Hagan who is attracting interest from other clubs.

The Owls head into the final game of the season clinging on to their Championship status.

Wednesday face Derby County at Pride Park knowing they must beat Wayne Rooney’s side and hope Rotherham United fail to win at Cardiff City in order to survive.

Either way, the Yorkshire club is set for a major rebuild this coming summer.

Several Owls players are out of contract including Tom Lees, Jordan Rhodes, Joey Pelupessy, Joost van Aken, Kadeem Harris, Osaze Urhoghide and Adam Reach among others.

Wednesday may opt to retain some in the event of survival, but a drop into League One could prompt a mass clear-out and new emphasis on bringing through academy talent.

Ghana Soccer Net claim the Owls are already planning for the worst-case scenario, and they have offered Hagan a new contract amid interest from other clubs.

The 19-year-old is currently flourishing with Wednesday’s U23 side, having moved to Hillsborough from Premier League side Chelsea back in 2018.

Hagan made his debut for the Owls in the EFL Cup earlier this season.

With Rhodes out of contract and Josh Windass gaining interest, the Owls could be short on striker options this summer and promoting Hagan from the U23s would make sense.
