Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly still exploring the possibility of bringing Sam Hutchinson back to the club according to Yorkshire Live.
Hutchinson was previously with the club, but departed in the summer of 2020, and later signed for Cypriot side Pafos, where he made five appearances in total, before having his contract terminated on Boxing Day.
The midfielder made 154 appearances in total for the Owls in a six-year spell with the club, and could be set for a return in the near future.
Yorkshire Live claim that the Owls are still pondering whether to make a move for the 31-year-old, who is currently without a club after his brief spell with Pafos.
Sheffield Wednesday are currently sat 21st in the Championship table, and will be hoping they can build on some impressive recent showings, as they look to push themselves further up the second-tier standings at the earliest of opportunities.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on the club’s reported transfer stance on Hutchinson.

Why, that’s makes no sense
He was great when, bannan, forestieri, hopper, Wallace and Lee where at the top of there games but we are nowhere near that now

He’s an upgrade on Pelupessy so do it for me. Doubt be big money or long contract

He knows the club ,city and how we play ,definitely worth bringing him back on the right deal ,no brainer.

I'd take him. Add some steel and could cover at centre back and even right back if needed. Could maybe look at an performance/appearance based contract

Offer him a deal to the end of the season. If he proves his fitness & we stay up, offer him a one year rolling contract. https://t.co/iSXPjxm2yo
