The Sun (as cited by the Sheffield Star) has claimed that striker Lucas Joao has handed in a transfer request at Championship side Sheffield Wednesday as he believes he is being priced out of a move away from Hillsborough.
Sheffield Wednesday have “overvalued” striker Lucas Joao out of a move away from the club this summer, leaving the Wednesday man with no choice but to hand in a transfer request at Hillsborough, according to claims from The Sun.
It has been reported that a “source” close to Joao has revealed the Portuguese striker wants to make a move away from the club this summer, but Wednesday’s valuation is pricing him out of a move away. The “source” said:
“He wants to move on to a new challenge. He is disappointed the club have not allowed him to talk to other teams and if there is no solution soon he will be putting in a transfer request.
“Joao believes he is being overvalued out of a move.”
