Charlie Mulgrew has been offered a contract by Sheffield Wednesday, according to The Sun (print edition, page 57, July 15, 2016).

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Championship club Wednesday have offered the 30-year-old a deal worth £1 million a year.

Mulgrew is technically without a club at the moment, with his contract at Celtic running out at the end of last month.

Talks over a new contract are going on, though, with Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers recently telling The Telegraph that he would like to keep Mulgrew in his team for the 2016-17 campaign.

It now seems that Wednesday have moved to take advantage of the situation and have (reportedly) offered the versatile footballer a big contract.

Mulgrew is 30 years of age, and can play as a centre-back, left-back and central midfielder.

The former Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aberdeen man has suffered injury problems during his time at Celtic, but he is now fully fit and raring to go.

Wednesday will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship next season, and Mulgrew would be a good signing.

The versatility of the 30-year-old would be very important for the Owls during the 2016-17 campaign.
