Owls boss Brian Laws is disappointed at Steve Watson being recalled by West Brom - but has revealed he's keen to get him back at Hillsborough next season.
The former Newcastle and Everton utility man has been a big hit with Wednesday fans since his arrival at S6 in February but was recalled by Baggies boss Tony Mowbray last night in light of their injury and suspension problems.
But however the Owls season ends, Wednesday boss Laws has revealed that he would like Watson to return to bolster his squad next season should the opportunity arise.
'Given the opportunity, I'd still like to see him back with us next season. He's under contract with West Brom and we'll have to wait and see what happens in the summer,' Laws told the Sheffield Star.
'He's been sensational for us. He suits our style; he can play in different positions.'
The North Shields born player made eleven appearances for the Owls after being deemed surplus to requirements at the Hawthornes since the arrival of Mowbray to the Baggies.
And Laws revealed that Watson's departure from S6 will be a big blow - but his squad will be able to cope.
'We fight on,' he said. 'I'm sure the players will think that nobody is going to do us any favours, and that there are people out there who are trying to stop us. I'm sure this can inspire them and help them to gel even more.
'I'm very disappointed (about the recall) but not surprised. They will see us as a rivals, as one of the teams who could overtake them. The clearing of McShane has made no difference.
'We won at West Brom without Steve, and I won't be replacing him with a bad player.'
