Sources: Brentford stance on fresh Sheffield Wednesday raid revealed

Brentford could make a fresh move to sign Barry Bannan if they fail to win promotion and Sheffield Wednesday suffer relegation, a source has revealed to Football League World. 

There’s been a long-standing interest in Bannan when it comes to Brentford, but the Scottish midfielder has remained at Sheffield Wednesday, where he serves as the club captain.

Bannan recently signed a new contract with the Owls which tied him down until the summer of 2023, but Wednesday’s potential relegation into League One could throw his future into doubt.

A source has revealed to Football League World that Brentford could make a fresh attempt to sign Bannan if they fail to win promotion to the Premier League and the Owls do drop into League One.

Brentford currently sit third in the Championship table, but are now 12 points adrift of the automatic promotion places having drawn their previous four fixtures.

They are facing a second season in the play-offs under Thomas Frank after last season’s Wembley heartache.

As for Wednesday, they sit 23rd in the table and seven points adrift of safety. However, Darren Moore’s side have won two and drawn one of their last four fixtures, giving them hope of pulling off a shock escape.

Bannan, 31, has been key to that string of results in the Championship, registering an assist in Monday’s impressive 5-0 win over Cardiff City.

Since arriving at Hillsborough in 2015, Bannan has made 251 appearances for the Owls, scoring 14 goals from midfield.
