Kenny Ponders Owls Future
Wednesday midfielder Kenny Lunt has admitted that he will think long and hard over his future at Hillsborough after falling down the pecking order in recent weeks.
Lunt has failed to tie down a place in the Wednesday midfield under boss Brian Laws since his move from Crewe last summer, with Steve Watson, Glenn Whelan and Yoann Folly all ahead of him in the centre-midfield pecking order.
The midfielder rejected a last-minute loan move to Walsall recently and also saw a switch to play for Sydney FC in Australia collapse due to visa complications.
And he insists that January will be a big month for his footballing future.
'I'll see what happens and then have a rethink in January,' he told the Sheffield Star.
'I wasn't really keen on the idea of going to Walsall; I was interested in the Australia thing; I thought it would have been good experience and a chance to play games, but it didn't work out.
'I thought I might have got a chance in our team at Plymouth, when Glenn Whelan was suspended and Graham Kavanagh had gone back to Sunderland, but I didn't. I think there's a few ahead of me.
'I have to keep working hard and see what happens.'
But despite only finding a place on the Wednesday bench in recent weeks, Lunt has made it clear that he is still happy at S6.
'I'm happy; everyone's happy at the club. When your mates, the ones in the team, keep doing it, then you have to be right behind them,' he continued.
'I'm trying to enjoy it in training and when I play in the Reserves, and keeping fit.'
Lunt could well remain an Owl in to the second half of the season, with a question mark still hanging over the head of Glenn Whelan, who's out of contract next summer, and Yoann Folly, who has also seen his chances limited at the club.
The Runcorn man, a product of Dario Gradi's youth system at Crewe, has made just seven appearances in the blue and white stripes this term, the last coming in the Owls' 3-0 home Carling Cup defeat at home to Everton.
