Europa League outfit PSV Eindhoven are keeping tabs on Fisayo Dele-Bashiru’s current situation at Sheffield Wednesday, according to a report from the Sheffield Star.
It is understood that the Dutch side are monitoring the midfielder’s progress at Hillsborough ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
With Dele-Bashiru’s contract set to expire following the conclusion of the 2022/23 campaign, teams that reside outside of the United Kingdom will be free to negotiate a pre-contract with the midfielder in January.
Previously linked with Besiktas and Antalyaspor, the 21-year-old is now attracting interest from PSV amid the uncertainty surrounding his future.
Earlier this year, Wednesday rejected a six-figure bid from Blackpool for Dele-Bashiru.
The Owls are currently trying to reach a breakthrough in terms of their negotiations with the midfielder over a new deal.
Despite the fact that talks have been going on for a considerable period of time, an agreement has yet to be finalised between the two parties.
Dele-Bashiru made his 13th league appearance of the season last weekend in the Owls’ meeting with Accrington Stanley.
Wednesday sealed all three points in this particular fixture thanks to an effort from Alex Mighten in the first-half of this fixture.
Darren Moore’s side will be looking to back up this triumph by producing a positive performance against Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.
If this report turns out to be true, it will be interesting to see whether PSV opt to step up their pursuit of Dele-Bashiru in the New Year.
For Wednesday’s sake, they will be hoping to convince the midfielder to commit his future as he has produced some encouraging attacking displays this season.
As well as scoring five goals for the Owls in all competitions, Dele-Bashiru has also provided three assists for his team-mates.
By maintaining his consistency over the course of the coming months, the midfielder could potentially play a key role in Wednesday’s push for automatic promotion.
If Ipswich slip up this weekend in their clash with Exeter City, the Owls will move above their promotion rivals in the league standings by sealing all three points in their clash with Shrewsbury.
