Sheffield Wednesday have opened talks with left-back Morgan Fox over a new contract, according to TEAMtalk.
The Welsh defender had been through very inconsistent patches in his Sheffield Wednesday career up until recently but has found a new lease of life under new manager Garry Monk. Fox was seen as a somewhat sporadic member of the Owls’ first-team before Monk was appointed in October, but is now a first-team regular at left-back.
Monk’s side currently boast the third-best defence in the league behind Brentford and Leeds, with Fox being a key reason for their backline tightening up of late. Fox has made 15 consecutive starts for the Owls under Garry Monk and has only missed four games in total since he came in.
TEAMtalk are now reporting that the club are set to undergo contract talks with Fox over a new deal, in an attempt to ward off interest from a number of Championship clubs, including West Brom, Nottingham Forest, Derby County, Blackburn Rovers and Huddersfield Town.
The interest has grown because the left-back is out of contract in the summer, much like a number of key first-team players at Hillsborough and they have a job on their hands to tie down all of them.
Can you name these ex-Sheffield Wednesday players?
It is very wise to ensure he is staying at the club long-term after finally proving he can provide some consistency in his performances at left-back.
If they don’t tie him down, he will be free to leave for nothing in the summer and that would certainly be a huge loss to Wednesday, given how highly rated he is by both players and staff at the club.
