Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Sean Clare could be set to leave them this summer when his contract expires, according to TEAMtalk.

The 21 year-old has a host of clubs on his tail including Premier League sides Tottenham Hotspur, Everton, Southampton and Leicester City. Fellow Championship sides Norwich City and Sunderland have also been credited with an interest.

The youngster has broken into the Owls’ first-team in recent weeks and their new manager Jos Luhukay is a big fan of him. They are keen to offer him a new deal but will now face a lot of competition for him which will make tying him down on a new contract tough.

The 6ft 3inc midfielder was born in Hackney and took part in the Nike academy before being snapped up by Sheffield Wednesday in 2016. He has been sent out on loan three times to gain some first-team experience.

His first loan spell was at League One side Bury in March 2016. Clare played four games for the Gigg Lane club before returning to Hillsborough. He was then loaned out to Accrington Stanley in January 2017 for the remainder of the 2016/17 season and he played nine games for the League Two side, scoring one goal.

He then joined Gillingham for the start of this season as the former Sheffield Wednesday manager Carlos Carvalhal did not have him in his plans. However, after playing well for the Gills, Clare returned to the Owls and has now forced his way into the team.

It will be a shame to lose such a promising talent for Sheffield Wednesday fans.
