15 Sheffield Wednesday players set to leave this summer as things stand - including big names
Wednesday are having a tough time of it in the Championship so far, and there are question marks about which division they will be playing in as things stand - a situation that doesn't really help them plan for the future.
There are at least 15 players who are believed to be out of contract come the summer, including a host of big-name players and others who have been at Hillsborough for many, many years.
The 15 below isn't an exhaustive list, it doesn't include players such as Ciaran Brennan - with whom the club as an option to extend - and there also may be others who've not had their contract lengths verified at this point in time.
Either way, the Owls could look very different come next season, especially if the bulk of these were to move on:
Reigning champions Bayern Munich have been overshadowed by Xabi Alonso's Bayer Leverkusen this season, but their hopes of a 12th-straight title remain well alive as they prepare for Saturday's trip to Eintracht Frankfurt.Fixtures (1430 GMT unless stated)
Hoffenheim v Bochum (1930)
Heidenheim v Darmstadt, Wolfsburg v Freiburg, Eintracht Frankfurt v Bayern Munich, Werder Bremen v Augsburg, Union Berlin v Borussia Moenchengladbach, Borussia Dortmund v RB Leipzig (1730)
More than nine months have passed since a visiting team travelled to Villa Park in the Premier League and left with three points. Unai Emery’s side have won 14 successive home games, including Wednesday’s remarkable mauling of Manchester City, and in doing so they have turned their stadium into the most formidable ground in English football.
