Former Sheffield Wednesday goalkeeper Mark Crossley is encouraged by Josh Windass signing a new contract with the Owls.
Windass put pen to paper on a new deal last month which will see the attacking midfielder stay at Hillsborough until the summer of 2023, although he is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury with the player saying himself he hopes to be back at the end of October.
The Owls tweeted last week that the player is back on the training field, potentially suggesting he could be back sooner than originally thought.
Windass joined Sheffield Wednesday from Wigan Athletic on loan in January 2020, before making his switch a permanent one at the end of that season. In his time with the Owls, Windass has found the back of the net on 13 occasions and provided a further six goals for his teammates.
Crossley is clearly happy about Windass signing his new contract, telling This is Futbol: “Josh Windass signing a new contract was encouraging.”
Sheffield Wednesday made a brilliant to start to life in League One as they were unbeaten in their opening three matches, however they have lost two of their three encounters since then.
As well as Windass signing a new contract with the club, manager Darren Moore has brought in 14 new players to the football club and after an inconsistent start to the season, everybody connected with the club will be hoping for an improvement and that Sheffield Wednesday are fighting for promotion come the end of the campaign.
