Darren Moore has dropped a potential hint over the future of Adam Reach, saying ‘he has a lot more football to play for the football club’.
Sheffield Wednesday find themselves in a precarious situation in the Championship after being embroiled in a relegation battle throughout the season.
As a result the Owls find themselves in 23rd position in the table and six points from safety with just nine matches remaining, meaning that there’s plenty of work to do if they’re to avoid the drop to League One.
If they’re to pull it off then they’ll need all of their players to fire on all cylinders, including those who are out of contract this summer.
One of the players in question is Reach, and discussing his situation at the club, Moore says that there’s no underestimating his value to the team.
As quoted by the Sheffield Star, Moore said: “One thing I’d say is that it’s great for Adam that he’s shown that versatility for us in terms of when there’s been an imbalance in the squad because of injuries or whatever, he’s been able to fill in and deputise.
“We don’t doubt Adam’s ability, he’s got wonderful ability and plays that left hand side of the pitch really well and it’s great to have that.
“We’ve seen him in more defensive roles and we’ve seen him in advanced roles and it shows his capabilities.
“Adam had a big part to play this season and he’s done well. With his quality coming from deeper positions and supporting play, he’s done very, very well.
“He’s got to continue and has a lot more football to play for the football club in the weeks and months ahead.”

It’ll be very interesting to see what the future holds for Adam Reach.
The midfielder is clearly very highly rated by the Sheffield Wednesday hierarchy and so it’ll be interesting to see if he ends up staying at the club this summer.
Of course he’s bound to have offers from elsewhere, but perhaps he could be tempted to stick around to help the club in their next chapter.
