Sheffield Wednesday ‘remain in dialogue’ with Chelsea over Michael Hector — report

The Chelsea loanee was Wednesday’s Player of the Season last season

Luton Town v Sheffield Wednesday - FA Cup Third Round Replay

Michael Hector’s holy quest to play just about every season of his professional career with a different team, preferably on loan, could be coming to an end if Sheffield Wednesday get their way.

The soon to be 27-year-old spent last year with the Owls already, and made a big enough impact while just on loan from Chelsea to be named their Player of the Season as they finished smack dab in the middle of the Championship table.

Manager Steve Bruce already expressed his desire to keep the defender (and often defensive midfielder), but Hector’s been busy at the Gold Cup with Jamaica for much of June. However, according to the Sheffield Star, the two teams “remain in dialogue” and Wednesday “have not given up hope” even as Fulham have expressed interest as well.

Since signing for Chelsea from Reading in the summer of 2015, Hector has spent time on loan back at Reading, then at Eintracht Frankfurt, then Hull City, and last year, Sheffield Wednesday. But even while he was at Reading, he collected the frequent loan miles, spending time at Bracknell, Didcot Town, Havant & Waterlooville, Oxford City, Horsham, Dundalk, Barnet, Shrewsbury Town, Aldershot Town, Cheltenham Town, and Aberdeen.


He has one year left on his Chelsea contract.
