Joey Pelupessy has an uncertain future at Sheffield Wednesday after struggling for playing time this season. The 26-year-old has made only nine appearances in all competitions, racking up a meagre 264 minutes of playing time in the Championship, and is out of contract in July.
Pelupessy has been the matchday squad for most of the 2019/20 campaign, but it’s hard to see Wednesday handing him a new deal as he’s currently on the periphery. The Netherlands midfielder finds himself behind Massimo Luongo, Sam Hutchinson, Barry Bannan and Kieran Lee in the pecking order under Garry Monk, so he may have to leave to get regular football.
Where should Sheffield Wednesday strengthen in the transfer market?
The Owls boss has handed Pelupessy only 75 minutes of Championship football in the last three months – he started in Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat to Blackburn Rovers (November 2, 2019), came off the bench in their 1-0 win over Bristol City (December 22) and came off the bench in their 2-0 win over Leeds United (January 11, 2020).
Wednesday may not sell Pelupessy in the January transfer window as he’s still a useful squad player, but he may be allowed to leave in the summer.
