There could be an exodus of goalkeepers at Sheffield Wednesday this summer, as the Owls have one out-of-contract first-teamer and one out-of-favour shot-stopper who no longer has a future at Hillsborough.

Garry Monk froze out one player earlier in the season and hasn’t offered the other a new deal, so let’s see which two goalkeepers may be at risk of leaving Wednesday in the coming months.

Who did Sheffield Wednesday sign Josh Windass on loan from?

Paul Jones is soon-to-be out of contract and could be released this summer, as he’s failed to make a first-team appearance since joining on a free transfer from Fleetwood Town last summer.

The 33-year-old was brought in to provide backup between the sticks due to an injury crisis, but Jones never managed to come off the bench – he was an unused substitute twice in the EFL Cup and six times in the Championship.

Garry Monk has Cameron Dawson and Joe Wildsmith at his disposal and may consider Joshua Render as a third-choice if Jones leaves.

Keiren Westwood has one year remaining on his deal, but he may have played his last game for Wednesday.

The 35-year-old was frozen out of the first-team in November 2019 and has been left out of the matchday squad ever since, so it wouldn’t be surprised if Westwood is sold.

A lot of supporters believe the experienced goalkeeper should be restored as Wednesday’s No.1, but it doesn’t appear Monk will bring him back to the fold.
