Out-of-contract Sheffield Wednesday star issues update on future

Published

Sheffield Wednesday defender Daniel Pudil has posted an update on social media, hinting that he is close to signing for a new club.

The 33-year-old was one of six out-contract-players that will be released from their contracts at Hillsborough, as new manager Steve Bruce looks to put his own stamp on the squad.

Pudil has been an important player for Sheffield Wednesday over the past few seasons and made eleven appearances for the Owls in the Championship during the current campaign, but none since Bruce took charge of the club in February.

The defender posted this photo on his personal Instagram story, hinting that he is close to agreeing terms to sign for a new club.

The left-back added a message saying that he is looking forward to a new challenge with another club and confirmed that he will post another update once the terms have been agreed.

Pudil made 114 appearances for Sheffield Wednesday, scoring four goals, after joining the club on a permanent deal from Watford in 2016, following a successful loan spell the previous season.

The Verdict:

This is exciting news for Pudil, who has been an important player for Sheffield Wednesday over the past few seasons but his time was up in Yorkshire and you can understand why.

Bruce is trying to take the club forward and it made sense to release the experienced defender to free up space and funds.

The Owls fans will no doubt wish the Czech international well in his next move and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.
