Sheffield Wednesday fans are divided over Kieran Lee's future at Hillsborough.

Lee hasn't appeared for Wednesday's first-team since December 2017 owing to injury.

But the 30-year-old has now played more than 100 minutes of under-23 team football in the space of eight days.

 

And with (at least) four first-team fixtures still to be played, there's a chance Lee could make his comeback before the season's out.

If not, well Monday's run-out might be the last we see of Lee in Sheffield Wednesday colours, as his contract nears expiry.

And while some of an Owls persuasion are keen for him to stick around, not everyone agrees.

This is what they're saying on Twitter...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lee was a regular in the Sheffield Wednesday sides that reached the play-offs in 2016 and 2017, and it's fair to say his presence has been missed throughout the past 16 months.

The former Manchester United player has scored or made 32 goals in 185 games for the Owls.
