According to Yorkshire Live, Morgan Fox ‘will depart’ Sheffield Wednesday after making his farewell appearance against Bristol City on Sunday. The 26-year-old is out of contract on June 30 and turned down Wednesday’s offer to stay past 2020, so he’ll be a free agent two days after the City clash.

Who did Sheffield Wednesday sign Josh Windass on loan from?

The Owls come into Sunday’s trip to Ashton Gate off the back of woeful form. Wednesday have managed only one win in their last 11 games, picking up only seven points from a possible 33 – Garry Monk’s side are as close to the relegation zone as they are to the playoffs. Fox’s farewell game might be a difficult one.

He’s nevertheless impressed this season, making 31 appearances in all competitions while scoring three goals and making one assist. The left-back has attracted interest from Burnley, Norwich City, Bournemouth, West Bromwich Albion, Middlesbrough and Rangers due to his fine form, so his decision to leave Wednesday may be related.

It’s bad news for Monk, as he’s now lost a talented first-team player for free and doesn’t have the transfer kitty to replace him adequately. Matt Penney signed a new deal and Liam Palmer will be a makeshift option, but Wednesday’s team is getting weaker as they trim the wage bill.

Fox joined the Owls for £750k from Charlton Athletic in 2017 and has gone on to make 102 appearances across the board, scoring four goals and making six assists.
