Midfielder opens up about exit

Tyreeq Bakinson has left Nigel Pearson’s side on a permanent deal for Sheffield Wednesday.

The midfielder slipped down the pecking order and spent time with Ipswich Town earlier this year.

He has opened up about his move to the Owls, as per a report by Yorkshire Live:

“I want to play some football and that obviously wasn’t happening where I was so it is really great to get this deal done and over the line.

“I think that is what most players want. They want to find a home and where they can play in front of loads of fans and play the right sort of football and that is exactly what is possible here.”
