Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal’s long term future at the club could be in doubt with the Portuguese boss believed to be out of contract in the summer according to the Sheffield Star.

The 51-year-old Braga born boss is a hugely popular figure amongst Wednesday fans and has helped the club go through a positive transformation in the past two years.

It was previously believed that Carvalhal signed a new three-year deal with The Owls 12 months ago meaning that the Wednesday boss would be contracted to the club for a significant period of time but it has now been reported that the deal was only a one-year extension and he will now be out of contract in the summer.

With Wednesday having suffered Play Off Final heartbreak last season, it is more important that ever that The Owls are successful this time around with the club desperate to continue their journey under Carvalhal’s leadership. Should the club secure a return to the Premier League, the prospect of managing in the top flight would surely be enough to persuade the Portuguese boss to stay.

The Owls go into their final match of the regular season against Fulham at Hillsborough on Sunday with little to play for other than to determine their Play Off opponents but regardless of where Wednesday finish in the league table, they will face a tough two-legged match.
