Sheffield Wednesday will continue to monitor Aaron Mooy’s situation, despite the midfielder helping Huddersfield into the Premier League.

The Australian was one of the Terriers’ star players throughout what would become an historic campaign and his performances caught the eye of those in charge of recruitment at Hillsborough.

Mooy is on loan from Manchester City though he is highly unlikely to be breaking into Pep Guardiola’s first team.

That means the 26 year-old’s future remains undecided with Wednesday continuing to keep track on Mooy’s availability.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner would be more than keen to have the player remain at the John Smith’s Stadium, even for another loan spell.

However, Mooy’s displays in the middle of the park for a side who were tipped by some pundits for relegation, will have alerted more established Premier League sides.

The former Melbourne City star will remain one of a number of potential Wednesday targets at this very early stage of the summer recruitment process.

Mooy, who scored one of the penalties against Reading at Wembley, said he would enjoy helping to take the Terriers to the Premier League after a 45-year absence before deciding where his future lies.

“I can’t say anything. I’ve got to speak to my agent and Man City,” he said. “I’ve told them to not talk to me until the end of the season. I have just been trying to concentrate on the play-offs. They’ll probably have to leave me alone for another 24 hours.”

On the promotion he added: “We stuck to it, we had some bad runs but we came back strong and got ourselves into the play-offs. And we’ve done it, it’s unbelievable.”
