82.5% pass success: Celtic must launch a transfer bid for player who happens to be fan of club | Football League World

After two successive top-six finishes, many at Sheffield Wednesday thought it could be third time lucky for the Owls this season as they went for promotion. However, things haven’t gone that way at all. Carlos Carvalhal was sacked in December and Jos Luhukay took over in January but has changed little. The Yorkshire club find themselves 17th and just seven points ahead of the relegation zone after a disastrous season. Whilst a ridiculous injury list is a valid excuse for both Carvalhal and Luhukay it can’t hide the disappointment among everyone at the club. Given that, the Owls may face a battle to keep hold of star players in the summer, one of which is undoubtedly Barry Bannan. The Scottish midfielder is a Celtic fan and spent a few years in their academy. And, here at FLW we think it would be a great signing by the SPFL champions if they could bring entice the midfielder back up north. As you can see, the Scotland international is a player who loves to get on the ball, with 64.7 passes on average a game, and that style would sit perfectly with the way Brendan Rodgers likes to play. Additionally, he is rarely wasteful in possession whilst he also is prepared to look for decisive passes instead of keeping the ball for the sake of it. Having played in central midfield for a few years now, as opposed to out wide, Bannan has become a more rounded and competitive player that puts a shift in for the team. With a summer of big change ahead at Hillsborough, the Glasgow giants could step in to bring one of their own back home. Thoughts, Celtic and Owls fans? Let us know in the comments below.
