Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Hooper has sent a message to the club on social media, after his departure from Hillsborough was confirmed. 

The 31-year-old is one of six out-of-contract players who have been released by the Championship club, as new manager Steve Bruce looks to put his own stamp on the squad.

Hooper made just six appearances for Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship this season, scoring one goal, after returning from a 15-month injury lay-off in March.

The striker posted this message on his personal Twitter account, thanking the club for looking after him and thanking fans for their continued support throughout his time with the club.

The forward said that he has really enjoyed his time at Hillsborough, but added that he is now looking forward to the next chapter of his career.

Hooper scored 31 goals in 89 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday and made his finial appearance for the club during the 2-1 defeat to QPR on Sunday.

The Owls finished the season 12th in the Championship table, ten points outside the play-off places.

The Verdict 

Hooper has been an important player for Sheffield Wednesday over the past few seasons and Owls fans will be sad to see him go.

The striker has endured a difficult few months, having missed nearly all of this season with an injury, but will now be focused on preparing for the next chapter of his career.

Bruce is expected to make several changes to his squad in the summer, as he looks to strengthen his side ahead of next season’s promotion push.
