Sheffield Wednesday is set to retain the services of fantastic midfielder for the rest of the season

According to The Star, Sheffield Wednesday is more likely to retain the services of Jeff Hendrick for the rest of the season rather than sending him back to Newcastle United. The midfielder has been on loan from St James’ Park since transfer deadline day, and while there were discussions about his potential return to Newcastle, the current situation suggests otherwise.

Despite being linked with a move away from Wednesday, recent reports indicate that Hendrick is leaning towards staying at the club. At 31 years old, Hendrick was brought in by Xisco Munoz to provide experience and expertise to the midfield, but he has struggled to make a significant impact. Notably, he hasn’t featured in the last eight matchday squads due to injury, coinciding with an improvement in Wednesday’s form during his absence.

While ideally, Sheffield Wednesday might prefer to send Hendrick back to Newcastle, the club faces a dilemma. The desire to avoid leaving themselves short in the squad and the inclination to do right by an injured player could influence the decision. The outcome may depend on whether Wednesday brings in another midfielder during the current transfer window. Speculation links Isaac Hayden as a potential addition to the squad, potentially resulting in the club swapping one Newcastle loanee for another.

Hendrick, recovering from his injury, is hopeful to contribute as Wednesday aims to climb out of the relegation zone in the Championship. The final decision on whether he remains part of the Wednesday squad for the rest of the campaign will likely unfold as the season progresses.
