Adam Reach looks ‘more likely’ to leave Sheffield Wednesday than stay, according to The Athletic’s Nancy Frostick.
The Owls’ star is one of many players at Hillsborough who face an uncertain future with his contract due to expire at the end of the season.
As it stands Darren Moore’s side are on track to suffer relegation to League One, meaning that funds are likely to be even more limited this summer as Dejphon Chansiri looks to rebuild his side for the seasons ahead.
Reach has been discussing his future this week, saying: “I’m not really letting myself get involved in that. That’s for the club and my representatives to discuss that. I’m sticking to what I know and that is playing football. I am focusing on that and then there are decisions to be made. There are decisions for the club and there are decisions for me about what is best moving forward.
“I have loved my time (here). It is not where I want to be playing and challenging at the bottom (of the league) but this is where we are and I firmly believe my team-mates and our squad can get out of this and hopefully this club can move forward.”
While he hasn’t ruled out staying put, Frostick delivered her verdict on the 28-year-old’s future and suggested that it could be time for the ex-Middlesbrough man to make a clean break.
Writing for the Athletic, Frostick said: “As he enters the final months of his contract, uncertainty surrounds Reach’s future and recent comments suggest we are more likely to see him depart this summer than see him stay.
“Reach might not be a player who has received universal admiration at Wednesday but he would be missed if he does move on.
“Few of the wingers who have come and gone in recent seasons have given as much to the club, even if it might be the right call for both parties to have a clean break before next season — whichever division Wednesday are in.”

Adam Reach could be one of the players to move on this summer.
The winger has been with Sheffield Wednesday for five years now and that’s a decent stint in the current day.
If the Owls do go down then I’m sure that Reach will want to stay in the Championship and so it wouldn’t be a surprise at all to see him seek a new challenge elsewhere.
