The Owls have been busy this transfer window, bringing in nine players, and one player from last season that won’t be leaving is club captain Bannan.
Will Sheffield Wednesday come back up?
According to The Sheffield Star’s Alex Miller, the recent signing of George Byers has led to speculation over Bannan’s future, but when asked if he was going to stay at Hillsborough beyond the transfer window, he simply replied ‘yes’.
A lot of Wednesday fans are delighted on Twitter to read Bannan’s latest comments surrounding his future.
What have these Sheffield Wednesday fans been saying?
“Excellent news. So many options in centre-mid now. One centre-back and at least one striker then I think we are done. Then ship some kids out on loan.”
“He’s just a top bloke who happens to be our top player and captain. What a fantastic servant he has been and long may it continue”
“Loving this attitude”
“Type of stuff you love to read on a fine Wednesday morning #mycaptain”
“What a guy! The younger players will learn so much from playing alongside him. Just hope they don’t want to hold his hand all game like Joey did when he played.”
“I love you Barry”
Wednesday released 12 players this summer following their relegation into England’s third tier, however, Darren Moore has added new faces to the squad and freshened his side up as he prepares to lead a promotion charge.
Despite bringing in all these new faces, Moore has had to box smartly as he has not spent any money on transfer fees this summer, having to rely heavily on frees and loan signings.
