Sheffield Wednesday’s transfer stance explained as they consider move for 31-y/o

Sheffield Wednesday are still weighing up whether to re-sign Sam Hutchinson, even though he was a target put forward by former boss Tony Pulis.

The experienced boss was dismissed by the Owls last week after a poor run of results and a disagreement with owner Dejphon Chansiri.

With the transfer window just around the corner before he was sacked, Pulis had already drawn up a list of targets. It had been reported that bringing Hutchinson back to Hillsborough was an aim.

And, according to Yorkshire Live, a deal for the 31-year-old could still happen. They state that the club are ‘still pondering’ over offering the combative midfielder a contract.

They also add that Chansiri has concerns over the fitness of the player, which means any offer is likely to be short-term initially.

Hutchinson, who played almost 150 times for Wednesday over six years, is currently out of contract having left Cypriot outfit Pafos FC last month.

As he is a free, Wednesday don’t have to sort this transfer in the window, but you would expect a decision to be made as soon as possible.

Did Lee Grant make more or less than 100 Owls appearances?

The verdict

You can understand why Wednesday are still thinking about signing Hutchinson, because he is a very useful player who could play a part in helping them out of relegation.

The main issue with the former Chelsea man would be his injury record, but a short-term contract could suit all parties.

So, it will be interesting to see what happens, and as he is a free, the Owls could wait until a new manager arrives before giving him the final say.
