Sheffield Wednesday have begun talks with Callum Paterson regarding a new contract, as reported by Joe Crann of The Star.
Crann’s tweet also states that The Owls turned down Championship interest in the forward.
Paterson has appeared four times in Wednesday’s opening five games of the season, starting two, coming on in two, and was not named in the squad for the other.
Last season, the physical striker netted eight times, and assisted a further four, in 43 Championship appearances for The Owls.
Prior to joining the Yorkshire club in September of last year, Paterson racked up over 100 matches for Cardiff City, after joining The Bluebirds from Hearts.
Born in London, Paterson moved to Scotland aged three, kicking off his youth career with Tynecastle Boys Club.
The frontman has also represented Scotland 17 times since his 2016 debut, but he is yet to find the back of the net for his country.
Paterson is of Championship quality. He is extremely intelligent when it comes to battles on the pitch, using his body well to claim possession.
Despite possessing the ability to play in the tier above, it remains to be seen if he sees much game time this season.
The Owls have excellent attacking options, and when Josh Windass returns, he might find himself even further down the pecking order.
Even if he struggles to consistently start this season, it is expected that Paterson will have some part to play this season. He offers a lot at League One level and will cause havoc from the bench or when selected in the starting XI.
