Sheffield Wednesday manager’s definitive statement on reported Swansea City transfer target Barry Bannan

Darren Moore says Sheffield Wednesday have received no offers for Barry Bannan amid reported interest in the playmaker from Brentford and Swansea City.

Having already recruited Kyle Joseph, Liam Walsh and Joel Piroe, the Swans are determined to bolster their creative options ahead of the new campaign.

Sky Sports have claimed newly-promoted Brentford and Steve Cooper’s side are both interested in striking a deal to sign Bannan ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Earlier this year, the Scot signed a fresh contract to remain with the Owls until the summer of 2023.

However, Sheffield Wednesday could well cash in on the 31-year-old this summer following their relegation to League One.

But Moore insists the club are yet to receive any official approaches for the 27-cap Scotland international.

“Honestly, it’s the first I’ve heard of it,” he told the Sheffield Star when asked about interest in Bannan.

“But we’re going to get interest in all of our players, because they’re good players.

“There’s been nothing official from a club point of view, so we move on.”

Reports suggest Bannan could leave Hillsborough for £1m due to a release clause in his contract that could be triggered following the Owls’ relegation from the Championship.

His wages could well prove a stumbling block for Swansea though, particularly with other clubs suggested to be keen on a move for the midfielder.

Bannan started his professional career with Aston Villa following two years in Celtic’s youth system and went on to have loan spells with Derby County, Blackpool and Leeds United before joining Crystal Palace on a permanent deal in 2013.

Following a loan stint at Bolton Wanderers, Bannan joined Sheffield Wednesday in 2015. He has made more than 250 appearances for the club.

The summer transfer window closes at 11pm on Tuesday, August 31.
