Morgan Fox has an uncertain future at Sheffield Wednesday, as his contract is up in June and he’s yet to put pen to paper on an extension.

The 26-year-old has been in talks with the Owls over a new deal since January, but a lot of supporters from Owlstalk think Fox could be holding up negotiations due to his demands.

Vital Sheff Wed have suggested he might want a fresh start due to links with Huddersfield Town, West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough, coupled with Wednesday’s struggles in the Championship, so things are still up in the air.

Who did Sheffield Wednesday sign Josh Windass on loan from?

Soldierboyblue: “I think they might well have been put on hold by the club for the obvious reason. I would offer both a new contract albeit Fletcher on reduced terms to what he is on now. Fox is the best LB at the club but I can possibly see him being released if he begins to play hardball and we would then look at Penney and Moses as the way ahead.”

Sefton owl: “I’m sure there has been talk of Fox wanting to move on. We would be foolish not to offer him a new deal.”

Dutch McLovin: “Fox, I wouldn’t bother. (He) got better, but (is) not good enough. Get Penney tied down and given a chance.”

MrEdwards: “Probably waiting to see if we stay up.”

WalthamOwl: “Fox, I’m not bothered either way.”

Marc_Degryse: “Fox (is) coming into his prime and has come on leaps and bounds this season. Has clear resale value so would definitely pull out the stops to keep him, provided he isn’t taking the wee-wee with his demands.”

Meggoisgod: “Fox is hopeless. (I) don’t care (if he signs a new deal).”

Fox joined Wednesday from Charlton Athletic in 2017 and has gone on to make 102 appearances in all competitions, scoring four goals and making six assists. He’s been a regular under Garry Monk, making 31 appearances across the board, but there are a lot of supporters that still don’t think he’s good enough.

Despite this, it’s worth noting that Fox is yet to receive a formal offer from any club, so he might have no option left but to re-sign with the Owls. Time will tell. Wednesday have Matt Penney, Liam Palmer, Moses Odubajo who can operate at left-back, so they have cover for the 26-year-old.
