Bakinson, Byers and more: What the summer could hold for Sheffield Wednesday’s loaned out players

Sheffield Wednesday have hit form at the best possible time and now look to be edging closer to safety with each passing result, but there is still a lot left to do.

Sheffield Wednesday may be down in 23rd in the table but they are just three points from being out of the relegation zone for the first time since the Championship’s opening weekend.

Although their main priority will be retaining their second tier status for another season, the club behind the scenes could have an eye on the upcoming summer transfer window and the potential incomings, outgoings and returning loanees.

The Owls have two first-team players out on loan, and a handful of youth prospects too. We take a look at three players who are currently at other clubs for the season and what the summer may have in store for the trio.

George Byers

Having been offered a one-year deal at Hillsborough earlier in the season, Byers does see his current contract come to an end this summer. With playing time not guaranteed under new boss Danny Rohl he was shipped out on loan to Blackpool in January where he has begun to find some form.

Rohl aimed to streamline the Owls midfield upon his arrival, but with Byers impressing in League One he could be offered another one-year extension to keep him at Sheffield Wednesday beyond his current contract expiry date.

Tyreeq Bakinson

A player who was projected to achieve big things following his rise to prominence at Bristol City, Bakinson hasn’t particularly kicked on since making the switch to Sheffield Wednesday in 2022.

He made just three starts in the first half of the season at his parent club before making the switch to League One side Charlton Athletic in January. Since then he has played eight times and looks to have secured a regular place in the starting eleven for the Addicks.

Similar to Byers he is out of contract at Hillsborough in the summer and his form at Charlton Athletic and which division Sheffield Wednesday are playing their football in next season is likely to determine whether he is offered a new deal or allowed to leave for free.

Ciaran Brennan

The 23-year-old centre-back has played 18 times for Sheffield Wednesday in his career but looks to be very far away from the first-team fold as things stand. He didn’t make the matchday squad at all in the first-half of the campaign at Hillsborough before making the switch to Hartlepool United in non-league.

With his contract up in the summer he is likely to be allowed to leave for free. Should Hartlepool United see fit he could well make his move permanent on a free transfer or secure a move elsewhere.
