LOOVENS TO FLY AWAY FROM OWLS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE RESULTS -

SH­EFFIELD Wednes­day club cap­tain Glenn Loovens will de­part the Owls at the end of the sea­son af­ter fall­ing down the peck­ing or­der.

Loovens, 34, has not ap­peared for two months and he is to be re­leased along with winger Ross Wal­lace and goal­keeper Jake Kean, while Kosovo striker At­dhe Nuhiu has been of­fered a new con­tract.

Sh­effield Wednes­day man­ager Jos Luhukay said: “Glenn’s char­ac­ter and men­tal­ity is fan­tas­tic. It has not been easy in the last few months (for him).

“He has not played many games. Most of the time he was not play­ing but his char­ac­ter on the train­ing field and in the camp was al­ways very pos­i­tive.

“He mo­ti­vated his col­leagues in this last pe­riod so I have a lot of re­spect for him as a per­son and as a foot­baller.

“He had a fan­tas­tic ca­reer be­fore he came to Sh­effield. He played for some great clubs.”

Mean­while, 32-year-old Czech de­fender Daniel Pudil will re­main at Hills­bor­ough af­ter sign­ing a new one-year deal.
