Sam Durrant is looking to earn a deal with League One side Sheffield Wednesday.

Durrant is set to leave Rovers after three years at the club, with his contract set to expire.

The 20-year-old turned out for the Owls’ Under-23s side and scored in a 2-1 defeat with Millwall.

It comes as his time with Rovers is set to end, four years after making the move from Liverpool.

Durrant agreed a professional contract with Rovers in 2020, and then signed a 12-month extension last summer, but hasn’t featured for Mike Sheron’s Under-23s side in the last month.

He has made 30 appearances in all for Rovers Under-23s, including 14 this season, but is set to follow Luke Brennan and Joe Ferguson in leaving the club.

Departures from the Under-23s group aren’t set to be extensive, with several deals having been agreed, with Sam Burns having last week extended his stay at the club for a further year.

Yet Durrant appears free to find a new club, the winger having trialled for the Owls in their final game of the season.

Durrant, able to play on either flank or as a No.10, was one of five trialists involved for Neil Thompson’s side.

Speaking earlier this month, first-team boss Darren Moore said the club would be looking at trialists with the hope of boosting numbers in the squad.

He said: “We’ll take a good look and think about whether we feel they’re good enough to make an impact and see if there’s a pathway to get towards our first team.”

The Owls are looking for an immediate return to the Championship after relegation last season.

They finished fourth in the League One season to set-up a play-off semi-final with Sunderland.

While Durrant is aiming to win a contract with the Owls, Brennan is interesting League One champions Wigan Athletic.

Speaking of the players about to leave the club, Under-23s boss Sheron said: “While it’s disappointing for them to go on to pastures new, I think there should be excitement because they’ve been consistent, reliable and honest.

“I think there are definitely opportunities for them to develop careers and we wish them well.”
