Atdhe Nuhiu has extended his contract by a further two and a half years at Hillsborough.

The new deal will see the towering striker remain with Wednesday until the summer of 2018.

Nuhiu joined the Owls ahead of the 2013/14 campaign and has developed into a cult figure at the club during his time in S6.

Through his intricate touches, effective link-up play and goals, the frontman has become an integral part of the squad over the past two campaigns.

Nuhiu joined on a free transfer in July 2013 and scored on his debut on the opening day of the season against QPR at Loftus Road.

The big man went on to hit eight goals in his maiden campaign and has scored 23 in all competitions for the Owls to date.

Nuhiu bagged a number of memorable strikes last season, scoring twice at the Riverside as the Owls claimed a 3-2 victory over Middlesbrough, as well as goals against Manchester City and Millwall – both of which made the cut in the Owls’ top ten goals of 2015.

The striker also played a big part in Wednesday’s memorable comeback at Rotherham in March 2016 by equalising in the final minute before rounding off that campaign in style by hitting a late leveller at Watford on the final day.
