It could be a summer of huge change for Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls are facing the fight of their lives as they look to avoid relegation to League One after a hugely disappointing season so far.
But with seven points separating them from safety it’s clear that the Yorkshire side have plenty of work still to do.
While finding on what league they’ll be playing in is key, it’s also set to be a big few months as far as player contracts are concerned.
Darren Moore has plenty of players who are entering the final months of their deals, and that means that some could be looking for challenges elsewhere.
One of those is youngster Liam Shaw who has recently agreed a pre-contract agreement with Scottish giants Celtic.
The 19-year-old has made 18 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday this term but released a statement on Wednesday that thanked supporters for their backing since bursting into the first team.
Thank you to @swfc especially the fans. Until the last kick of the season I will give my all. SWFC will always be special for me. On July 1, I will join at @CelticFC – a move which is impossible for me to turn down. pic.twitter.com/CfFq9jwefe

As you’d expect the message from Shaw has harnessed quite a response from supporters on social media.
While some are less-than impressed with the player moving on to Celtic, others have responded in a much more supportive way.
Here’s what a selection of fans had to say.
Your performances have warranted this move and I wish you all the best pal! I don’t blame you at all, great love in your career… Should’ve been Rangers though 😉
Good luck Liam 👍🏼

Quiz: Did each of these 18 ex-Sheffield Wednesday players ever score a goal at Hillsborough?
Good luck Liam. Gutted we didn’t see your full potential earlier and have you sign a longer contract. No grudges from me, if you’re not needing our shirt anymore sure my young’un wouldn’t mind it 😉
