Wednesday midfielder Tommy Miller has revealed his frustrations at being unable to play for the Owls due to contractual reasons.
The 32-year-old, who has captained Wednesday in recent weeks, was withdrawn from the squad that lost 2-0 at Brighton at the weekend by boss Gary Megson due to a clause in his contract.
It states that should the former Sunderland and Ipswich Town man play a set number of games in a season it will entitle him to a new deal when his current contract expires at the end of the season.
It's left Wednesday and Miller in a difficult and awkward position as the season draws to a close - one they hope to sort out to suit all parties as soon as possible.
'It is disappointing but what can you do?' he told the Sheffield Star.
'It is out of the manager`s hands and my own. I feel like I am in limbo. I don`t know whether I am going to get another game but hopefully it will become clearer this week and something can be sorted out.'
He added: 'The club are not happy with the current deal but hopefully we can come to some sort of arrangement. It is a strange situation because I am very happy here.'
Miller has played a key role for Wednesday in recent weeks and has also taken the captain's armband. But Owls boss Gary Megson may still be weighing up his options as how best to rebuild his squad for next season.
Wednesday, and Miller, will be hoping to sort the problem out before Saturday's visit of Hartlepool United, Miller's former club, to Hillsborough.
