Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Keiren Westwood has sent a message to striker Gary Hooper after it was confirmed he would be leaving the club this summer.
Hooper was one of six players released by Steve Bruce as he looks to put his stamp on the club and the Irishman was quick to send a message to his teammate on Twitter as he thanked the Owls.
Good Luck @HOOP588 pleasure was all mine horse. Great player, but more importantly a great lad. ????????????????

Replying to his teammate, the experienced goalkeeper said: “Good Luck @HOOP588 pleasure was all mine horse. Great player, but more importantly a great lad.”
Westwood’s own future remains up in the air with his current deal still set to expire in a month’s time and with no new deal yet confirmed.
Sheffield Wednesday rounded off their season with a disappointing 2-1 loss to Queens Park Rangers at Hillsborough, a result which meant they finished in 12th place, ten points off the pace for the play-offs but 24 clear of the drop zone.
I would be very surprised if Westwood does not sign a new deal at Wednesday.
He is guaranteed first-team football there which he certainly would not be if he were to make the move elsewhere in the summer.
Now coming towards the end of his playing career, does he really want to risk moving somewhere else only to bench warm elsewhere? I doubt it.
