'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Whelan Future A 'Worry'

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has admitted for the first time that the future of young midfielder Glenn Whelan at Hillsborough is a 'worry'.

The former Republic of Ireland under-21 international is out of contract at S6 in the summer, and has yet to put pen to paper on a new deal to keep him at the club.

A number of clubs, including Premiership outfits Wigan, Derby and Reading are said to have shown an interest in the youngster, while Stoke City have also been linked with his services.

And the Owls gaffer has admitted that if Whelan still hasn't pledged his future come January, and an offer comes in, he'll have to sit down and seriously consider it.

'Whelan is a worry,' Laws told the Yorkshire Post.

'We have still got to work within the same framework, nothing has changed in that sense, the finances haven't changed.

'We will have to sit tight and see what happens in January. If we get an offer for Glenn - and he is still not prepared to sign - then we are going to have to look at it realistically.

'But again, those questions have to be answered and I'm sure the board are very aware of the situation. I'm sure next week a lot of things will become clearer.'

Should the Owls cling on to the former Manchester City man in the January transfer window, they could risk losing him for nothing in the summer.
