In Sheffield Wednesday gaffer Jos Luhukay’s press conference ahead of the clash against Middlesbrough later tonight, the topic of youngster Matt Penney’s possible new contract came up.

The 20-year-old’s development this season as delighted many a fan far and wide and with ten appearances to his name so far in the season of 2018/19 the highly rated youngster has simply seen his stock rise even further given the growing quality and mature showings fans are seeing from him.

Luhukay is certainly confident a new deal will be relatively quickly signed to keep him with us for years to come.

There’s definitely hope within the fanbase that Luhukay gets his wish and this new contract is signed and sealed sooner rather than later as Penney has got to have put himself on a few clubs’ watch lists and we definitely don’t want to be heading into the January window without him being tied down for far longer, so that we’re at least in a stronger negotiating position should any interest arise.
