Morgan Fox held talks with Sheffield Wednesday over a contract extension last week and should commit his long-term future to the Owls. The 26-year-old is out of contract in July and has been linked with Nottingham Forest, Derby County, West Bromwich Albion, Huddersfield Town and Blackburn Rovers this month, but Wednesday are hoping he’ll fend off all the interest to stay.
Fox has spent three years at Wednesday and has gone on to make 95 appearances in all competitions, scoring and creating eight goals. The left-back has been a regular under Garry Monk this season and impressed for the most part, so it’s a wise move by the club to retain his services past 2020.
Where should Sheffield Wednesday strengthen in the transfer market?
With Ash Baker joining Newport County and Jordan Thorniley joining Blackpool, Monk has left himself short on cover for Fox. Liam Baker and Moses Odubajo can operate in the makeshift role, but both players are predominantly right-backs. Moses has been frozen out of the first-team while Palmer is still recovering from injury too, so Wednesday will be hoping Fox stays injury-free.
Tying down the 26-year-old is necessary, but Wednesday may benefit from bringing in another left-back either in January or July.
